Abstract

During the last two decades much progress has been made in identifying effective programs
and policies for prevention of adolescent alcohol and drug use, violence and delinquency, as
well as other problem behaviors (Elliott, 1997; Sherman et al., 1997; Substance Abuse and
Mental Health Services Administration, 2002). Despite these advances, less is known about
the implementation of these programs when they are conducted in different social contexts and
used by different people and organizations.
