The effects of a school and home-based drug prevention program on risk factors for subsequent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use among children were studied.
Data on parent and child risk factors for ATOD use were collected from fifty-six low-income parents and their children, ages four to six years, using a pretest-posttest design.
The parent-child intervention was conducted over a two-month period.
The intervention had no effect on parent or child risk factors.
However, the program was favorably received by parents and children.
Almost two-thirds of the parents at the experimental school were involved in the program.
Almost half of the parents had high depressive symptoms.
The high rates of ATOD use and depressive symptoms among these parents are cause for concern.
