Prevention Program Reduces Substance Use By Participants' Friends

January 2017
The Strengthening Families Program for Youth 10-14 (SFP10-14), an evidence-based intervention that reduces teen substance use, also reduced participants’ friends’ substance use.

The findings suggest that researchers should consider the potential for diffusion of benefits in designing and implementing prevention programs.
