Print Media (i.e. newsletterbulletin)

Interventions that target both HIV and substance use prevention in adolescents are scarce or are not designed for Hispanic youth. Familia Adelante (FA) is a behavioral health intervention that focuses on empirically-based and culturally-based risk factors within the Latino community. FA consists of twelve English or Spanish language, 90-minute modules for at-risk youth (age 10-14) and their parents. FA has been effective in reducing family stress and substance use patterns in Hispanic youth.
