Brief Summary:
The purpose of this project is to compare the effect of a family-based HIV prevention program to the effect of an adolescent-only health promotion program on adolescent HIV risk and marijuana use among adolescents enrolled in the Juvenile Drug Court (JDC) of the Rhode Island Family Court.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Detailed Description:
Adolescents and parents admitted to our study receive either an adolescent-only health education program that focuses on general health risk behaviors related to HIV/AIDS, smoking, diet and exercise or one that focuses on family-based HIV/AIDS education through safe decision-making and control of one's emotions as well as parent-child interactions that are associated with dysregulated affect, subsequent parenting deficits and adolescent HIV risk behaviors.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. adolescent HIV/STD risk [ Time Frame: 3 months post intervention ]
    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

  2. adolescent substance use [ Time Frame: 3 months post-intervention ]
    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.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Scores on measures of parent-child communication (general and sex-specific),parental monitoring and family emotional environment [ Time Frame: 3 months post intervention ]
    Using well-established parenting and family-based measures, such as the Parental Knowledge scales (for monitoring), Parent-Child Communication Scales (general and sexually-specific), and the Family Assessment Device (FAD), we will be obtaining both parent and adolescent report of these constructs.
