To review the latest studies on risk and protective factors for the development of substance abuse and the effectiveness of prevention interventions for the pediatric population.
Multiple bibliographic databases, including MEDLINE and ERIC, were used to develop a comprehensive review of the literature on substance abuse prevention during the last 10 years.
Selected indexing terms included substance abuse prevention, risk factors, and protective factors.
Research monographs from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention were used, along with information from authors of prevention curricula.
Study populations included children from birth through adolescence who were enrolled in controlled, prospective, and/or longitudinal studies of either protective or risk factors for the development of substance abuse or response to substance abuse prevention programs.
Studies of adult patients that investigated predisposing risk factors for substance abuse (eg, genetic implications) were also used.
Care was taken to ensure studies included children from diverse racial and social backgrounds.
Information was abstracted and summarized from peer-reviewed publications.
Controlled random-designed studies were used to determine prevention program efficacy.
Main results of the review are summarized in a qualitative format. (...)
