This paper uses data from an Australian AOD early intervention program, The Street Universities, to: describe young people’s participation; examine changes in substance use and wellbeing over 90 days; and assess which young people are most positively impacted.
Aligning engagement programs with therapeutic intervention can provide comprehensive support to disadvantaged young people, producing substantial improvements in AOD use, distress and wellbeing.
Service data (n=3893) and a prospective study (n=95)
