New LST Parent Program Becomes Available


WHITE PLAINS, NY, December 2002 - National Health Promotion Associates Inc., a health consulting, training and technical assistance firm established by Dr. Gilbert J. Botvin, developer of the LifeSkills Training drug abuse prevention program, has recently developed the effective school-based curriculum into a home-based program for parents to use with their children. The LifeSkills Training Parent Program, which can be used in conjunction with the LifeSkills Training school-based program or as a stand-alone product, is now available to the public.

This powerful prevention tool for parents of adolescent children is based on the same sound principles as the LifeSkills Training school-based program and the latest scientific evidence on how to decrease risk for drug abuse through a family-centered prevention approach that is fun, interesting, and easy to use. The program, which consists of videotape and a written guide containing information and exercises for the family to complete together, increases knowledge and understanding of the issues of drug abuse among adolescents. In addition, the LifeSkills Training Parent Program reinforces and illustrates parenting skills that have been found to reduce drug use.

The LifeSkills Training Parent Program is now available at a low introductory price of $149. To request more information about the LifeSkills Training Parent Program or to purchase a copy, please email or call 1-800-293-4969.

LifeSkills Training is widely regarded as the most effective and rigorously tested school-based substance abuse prevention program. Proven to cut alcohol, tobacco and drug use by up to 87 percent, LifeSkills Training is based on 20 years of research by Dr. Botvin and his associates at the Institute for Prevention Research of Weill Medical College of Cornell University. More than a dozen published research studies have documented the effectiveness of the LST approach. LifeSkills Training is the only substance abuse prevention program recommended by every key federal agency concerned with substance abuse, including the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the White House Office
