Evaluation of Drug Prevention Programs by Youths in a Middle-Class Community.
Dembo, Richard; Miran, Michael
International Journal of the Addictions, v11 n5 (to be published)
Based on an analysis of data from a survey of middle-class junior and senior high school youths in a New York City suburban community, this paper examined: (1) young peoples' reaction to various drug prevention programs in which they have been involved, and (2) the program topics they would like to see discussed. Important relationships were found to exist between substance use, prevention program evaluations and desired program topics. The results suggest that the youths selectively relate to and want prevention experiences that confirm their substance relationships. (Author)
