ENGAGEMENT/OUTCOMES OF MARGINALISED YOUNG PEOPLE IN AN EARLY INTERVENTION ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG PROGRAM
How the Street Universities succeed in reducing drugs and traumaAll Research and Trends
Early intervention alcohol and drug programs for disadvantaged young people have the potential to substantially decrease the need for future intervention, however there is little research about how young people use these programs or the substance use and other outcomes of such programs.
This paper uses data from the Ted Noffs Foundation’s Street Universities, to: describe young people’s participation in the program; examine changes in substance use and wellbeing among clients over 90 days; examine which groups of clients’ benefit are most positively impacted.
