The present study provides an implementation, process, and immediate outcomes evaluation of the classroom component of Project Towards No Drug Abuse (TND).
This project involves development and evaluation of a school-based drug abuse prevention curriculum for continuation high school youth, who are at relatively high risk for drug abuse.
Three randomized conditions were evaluated : a standard care, classroom only, and classroom plus school-as-community.
The latter condition was an enhanced school-based condition which involved outside-of-classroom meetings and activities.
Implementation was high in both program conditions even though this was a higher risk context.
Process evaluation data were favorable and did not vary between the two program conditions.
Immediate outcomes data (knowledge) was higher in the two program conditions than in the standard care condition.
Regarding the classroom program, addition of extra-classroom activities does not appear to alter the quality of delivery of the program.
