Drug Education Also Helps Curb Risky Sexual Behaviour

This is interesting:

The study found that youth exposed to a drug abuse education program [Project ALERT] were significantly less likely as young adults to either engage in sex with multiple partners or to have unprotected sex because of drug and alcohol use than their peers who had not received the training.

However, researchers found that those who received drug prevention training were no more likely to use condoms consistently than their peers who did not receive the training.

    • What I didn’t see until I posted was that the RAND story was from 2009 – something funny going on there! It is interesting that Blueprints have taken it off their database and I guess that’s a real danger with programmes in this field where effect sizes can be modest or difficult to replicate.
