Follow-up to the statewide model detection and prevention program for geriatric alcoholism and alcohol abuse


, : Follow-up to the statewide model detection and prevention program for geriatric alcoholism and alcohol abuse. Community Mental Health Journal 37(5): 381-391

A follow-up study was conducted to investigate the long term consequences of a statewide geriatric alcoholism detection and prevention effort in Virginia. High levels of knowledge had been retained seven years after the initial training. Quantitative and qualitative data provided by 64 of the volunteers, who were trained to conduct workshops in their communities, verified the program's ability to: 1) encourage further training or study in the area, 2) enhance the detection of alcohol problems, and 3) increase the incidence of assistance to individuals with alcohol problems. Ancillary data revealed the program's effects on personal drinking habits.
