Abstract

The purpose of this study is to specify important components of a model adolescent AIDS/drug abuse prevention program. A modified two-wave Delphi technique was used to intensively survey a nationally targeted group of 10 drug abuse experts and 11 HIV/AIDS experts. Panelists from both groups emphasized the importance of providing specific, accurate information on AIDS and drug use. They also recommended behavioral skills training that extends to all areas of the adolescents' lives. They agreed that it was important to adapt the program to the specific subculture of the group for whom the program is intended. Implications for family life specialists, therapists, adolescent AIDS/drug abuse prevention specialists, program evaluators, and policymakers are discussed.
