ABSTRACT
This study was designed to assess how a Faith-Based Prevention Model impacted elementary school, middle school, and high school youths' views on five risk factors: accessibility to alcohol, tobacco or other drugs, academic achievement, self-concept, peer behavior, and interactions between parent and child. Investigators found the model to significantly impact each risk factor positively, in particular, youths' views on accessibility of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Males were more responsive to the intervention in every area except parent-child interaction time. These results suggest that a Faith-Based Prevention Model can positively affect participating youths.
