Health promotion efforts in an isolated Hispanic community: The mora substance abuse prevention project


A high rate of substance abuse in a small, largely Hispanic town in the Southwestern United States, provided the impetus for a health promotion program to reduce substance abuse and driving under the influence of intoxicants among junior high and high school students. Community and school leaders were instrumental in gaining the cooperation necessary to implement the program. Preliminary results indicate changes in knowledge and intentions, but not behaviors.
