Brief School-Based Interventions and Behavioral Outcomes for Substance-Using Adolescents
Description of Resource:
This systematic review looked at the effects of brief school-based interventions for substance use and substance-related problem behaviors among adolescents. Results from the 6 studies identified found that adolescents who received a brief face-to-face intervention generally reduced their alcohol and cannabis use more than adolescents who received no intervention. However, adolescents who received a brief intervention did not seem to reduce their alcohol and cannabis use compared to adolescents who received information-only interventions.
