    Adolescent self-report of rates of condom use, number of sex partners, number of unprotected vaginal and/or anal intercourse episodes, frequency of alcohol use during sexual activity, frequency of marijuana use during sexual activity, frequency of other drug use during sexual activity

  • adolescent substance use [ Time Frame: 3 months post-intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Adolescent self-report of quantity and frequency of marijuana use, alcohol use and other drug use over the past 3 months and over the past 30 days. Collateral urine toxicology screen data will also be available for analysis.
