Abstract OBJECTIVE: We examined the generalizability of a successful classroom-based prevention program developed for youth at alternative high schools (high risk) to youth at general high schools. METHOD: A replication of a previously tested prevention program in a general high school population was conducted with 1-year follow-up data. Classrooms within each of three schools were randomly assigned to two conditions, classroom education or standard care control. RESULTS: Statistically significant effects on alcohol and illicit drug use were achieved in this population through a 1-year period following the program, although effects were not achieved on cigarette smoking and marijuana use. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that this program (Project Towards No Drug Abuse) has applicability to a wide range of older teens. Copyright 2001 American Health Foundation and Academic Press.
