Short-and long-term effects of a pilot prevention program to reduce alcohol consumption.
This study examined the effects of a brief, pilot alcohol prevention intervention for 211 disadvantaged 6th grade school children at posttest and 1-year follow-up.
Process data indicated that the intervention was successfully implemented and well received by youth and parent/guardian participants.
ANCOVA analyses indicated a significant difference on alcohol use frequency for drinking subjects at 1-month posttest, with less frequent use reported by intervention subjects than subjects receiving the minimal control materials, F (1,22)=5.37, p=03.
No differences were found between intervention and control subjects on alcohol use measures at 1-year follow-up.
Critical issues to be resolved related to the success of future prevention research and practice are discussed.
