Although several studies have reported short-term gains for drug-use prevention programs targeted at young adolescents, few have assessed the long-term effects of such programs.
Such information is essential for judging how long prevention benefits last.
This paper reports relults over a 6-year period for a multisite randomized trial that achieved reductions in drug use during the junior high school years.
The 11-lesson curriculum, which was tested in 30 schools in eight highly diverse West Coast communities, focused on helping 7th and 8th grade students develop the motivation and skills to resist drugs.
