New Study Affirms Effectiveness of LST

A major new international study affirms the effectiveness of Botvin LifeSkills Training and recommends that effective programs such as LST should be considered for widespread use.

The study was an evaluation of evidence from over 50 randomized trials testing the effectiveness of alcohol prevention programs. Randomized trials are the “gold standard” in biomedical research and are used to produced the most rigorous test of an intervention. The review study was conducted at Oxford University in England and was published by the prestigious Cochrane Library. In addition to affirming the effectiveness of LST, it provides clear evidence that generic social skills approaches are more effective in preventing youth drinking than alcohol-specific ones.
