Abstract

This project is a survey study of the effectiveness of the Green Mountain Teen Institute program, a drug-use prevention program carried out by Green Mountain Prevention Projects in Burlington, Vermont. We surveyed past participants of the Green Mountain Teen Institute to determine if the program has been achieving its goal of long-term use prevention in its graduates. We then compared our findings to national usage statistics to determine if the program has had a significant impact. In general we found that the amount of substance use for program participants was at or below national use levels, indicating that the institute may indeed have a positive effect.
