This report focuses on a program which was developed especially for Ethiopian-Israeli youth and their parents, aimed at preventing the use of alcohol and drugs and associated negative behaviors. The program targets youth at risk who, for the most part, are not yet heavy consumers of alcohol and drugs. It strives to reinforce the self-esteem and sense of self-efficacy of the adolescents and their parents, strengthen the child-parent relationship and impart information on the effects and dangers of alcohol and drug abuse. It consists of 25 sessions with the adolescents, a number of sessions with their parents and a number of joint sessions. The study examined program implementation and participant perceptions of results as a basis for further development.
