Alcohol education: What really works in schools?

South Australia-based National Centre Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) completed a major systematic review of research on alcohol education programs in secondary schools. This 4-page summary of the review’s findings provides teachers looking for an evidence-based alcohol resource some extremely useful information on effectiveness of available programs. Interestingly, out of a total of 39 programs reviewed, only 3 were found to have good evidence of effectiveness. Australia’s own Climate Schools, and two US resources – Project ALERT and All Stars have, according to the authors, enough trusted evidence to be confidently implemented.
