This article presents the results of an alcohol abuse prevention project targeting business and professional women.
Pre-post-and follow-up surveys of alcohol use, negative consequences and uses, and knowledge of alcohol were analyzed.
Although changes in self-reported negative consequences and information about alcohol occurred in both groups, changes in the experimental group occurred earlier (during the intervention period).
The experimental group also showed a significant decline in three unhealthy reasons for drinking.
There was no change in alcohol consumption levels.
In the context of primary prevention the lack of a change in consumption, in a group of light to moderate drinkers, is not unexpected.
Other, positive outcomes suggest that the prevention activities were effective.
