The purpose of this notice is to amend program announcement PA-93-046,

Drug Use and Abuse in Minority and Underserved Populations, published

in the NIH Guide, Volume 22, No. 5, February 5, 1993, Part II of II.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse wishes to add the following

research area at the end of the Areas of Research Interest.  All other

aspects of the announcement published February 5, 1993, remain the

same, including receipt dates.

Prevention Intervention Research:

Controlled experimental or quasi-experimental research is needed to

assess the efficacy of theory-based drug prevention intervention

strategies specific to culturally diverse populations.  Prevention

interventions may target general populations or high-risk groups and be

implemented in a variety of settings to include the home, school,

community, and workplace.  Prevention intervention research should

focus attention on ethnic, cultural, and gender-relevant issues,

concerns, and risk/protective factors that directly impinge upon the

successful design and testing of theory-based drug abuse prevention

interventions that best meet the needs of those at risk to drug use

onset and progression to abuse.  Proposed studies should: assess

theories of drug prevention; evaluate the explanatory power of key

mediating program variables; test the effectiveness of theory-based

programs to prevent or reduce the use/abuse of a variety of drugs to

include: alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, cocaine/crack, inhalants and

other illicit drugs; develop or refine prevention research methods and

measures, and analyze diffusion models of innovative practices.
