Peer-managed self-control program for prevention of alcohol abuse in American Indian high school students: a pilot evaluation study.


A peer-managed self-control program to teach responsible drinking was tested with 30 American Indian teenagers at high risk for problem drinking. Students were randomly assigned to three groups incorporating combinations of self-monitoring, peer-assisted self-control training, and alcohol education. Significant decreases were observed in quantity and frequency of drinking and in peak blood alcohol levels. These improvements were maintained at follow-ups of 4, 9, and 12 months posttreatment. Self-report data were corroborated by breath tests and official records. No group differences were found, indicating that minimal and full program interventions had comparable effects.
