Proposed Project: The Workplace Prevention and Early Intervention Transitioning Youth Into the Workplace (YIW) Cross-Site Evaluation—New

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) plans to conduct a cross-site evaluation of the effectiveness of workplace-based substance abuse prevention and early intervention programs for young adults (ages 16-24). These programs will be implemented by 9-10 CSAP-funded grantees and their partnering worksites. The primary purpose of the evaluation will be to study the effectiveness of modified model and effective drug-free workplace prevention and early intervention programs and interventions for incoming populations of young employees. This will provide the Nation's public and private employers with empirical information about effective strategies to utilize for these incoming employees in preventing and intervening early with substance abuse. A web-based survey will be used to collect data from employees at the participating grantee worksites at baseline and at 1- and 2-year follow-up points. The survey is composed of OMB approved CSAP's Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) outcome measures such as prevalence of drug and alcohol use, perceptions of risk, and attitudes and beliefs and a set of supplementary questions capturing workplace outcomes such as productivity, absenteeism and accidents.
