Journal of School Health, v68 n6 p231-36 Aug 1998
Examined student recruitment into an alcohol prevention program within neighborhood and magnet inner-city middle schools, noting student retention through one-month posttest and one-year followup. At one month, dropouts were more at risk for alcohol use initiation than nondropouts. At one year, dropouts were more likely to initiate alcohol and smokeless tobacco use and had more alcohol-use risk factors. (SM)
