Title:
Systematic Review of Interventions Aimed at Preventing Adolescdent's Drug Use
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The abuse in drugs consumption is a behavioral problem that demands effective prevention. The aim was to identify gaps methodological interventions that have been implemented to prevent drug use in adolescents from 2000 to 2010. A literature review was conducted using related descriptors, titles and abstracts of 72 titles identified, 10 interventions met our criteria. We extracted information based on full articles, we organized it using a table with the following columns bibliometric, methodologic, characteristics of interventions, and outcomes. Results. The interventions were implemented in Mexico (4), Spain (1), United States (4) and Asia (1), under quasi-experiments or experiments designs, by trained health professionals. Intervention doses were reported from 5 to 12 sessions per week, lasting from 1 to 18 months. All used standardized manuals. Measurements in nine studies used pencil and paper instruments, and only one used a biochemical test. Conclusions.  Some methodological strengths were: (1) control group, (2) baseline data, and (3) manual based treatment. In contrast, the sample size, power, allocation concealment, degree of adherence to treatment, and blinded evaluation are attributes that are recommended to consider in the implementation of future interventions.
