Though little evidence of their effectiveness exists, the number and variety of drug abuse prevention programs available for pre-school children have increased greatly. One effort to evaluate a pre-school drug prevention program in Cleveland, Ohio, using alcohol-related expectancies as an outcome measure is described. Alcohol-related expectancies of program participants at three years post-treatment did not differ from those of a comparison group. Theoretical and methodological issues in program development and evaluation are explored.
