Objectives To evaluate whether the effects of the Communities That Care (CTC) prevention system, implemented in early adolescence to promote positive youth development and reduce health-risking behavior, endured through age 21 years. Methods We analyzed 9 waves of prospective data collected between 2004 and 2014 from a panel of 4407 participants (grade 5 through age 21 years) in the community-randomized trial of the CTC system in Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Oregon, Utah, and Washington… Expand

Long-term Impacts and Benefit–Cost Analysis of the Communities That Care Prevention System at Age 23, 12 Years After Baseline
TLDR
Although CTC had small sustained effects through age 23, benefit–cost analyses indicated CTC was reliably cost beneficial, with a net present value of $7152 (95% credible interval: $1253 to $15,268) per participant from primary impacts and $17,919 ($306 to $39,186) when secondary impacts were also included.

Public Health Benefits 16 Years After a Statewide Policy Change: Communities That Care in Pennsylvania
TLDR
Examination of the effect of widespread diffusion of CTC across Pennsylvania found that CTC school districts had significantly lower levels of adolescent substance use, delinquency, and depression, and overall effects became stronger after accounting for use of evidence-based programs. Expand
Behavioral Science and the Prevention of Adolescent Substance Abuse
TLDR
This article reviews the evidence regarding behavioral science approaches to the prevention of substance use disorders and describes a variety of family, school, and community prevention programs that have been shown to prevent youthful use and abuse of substances. Expand
Life-course predictors of homelessness from adolescence into adulthood: A population-based cohort study.
TLDR
Path modelling showed higher levels of family conflict at ages 13 and 15 uniquely predicted homelessness by age 25, strengthening the case for both primary prevention programs that build healthy relationships between family members from early on in adolescence and for investment in homelessness prevention at key developmental periods.

TLDR
The primary outcome, number of opioid overdose deaths, will be compared between Wave 1 and Wave 2 communities during Year 2 of the intervention for Wave 1. Expand
Tobacco Taxation and Its Prospective Impact on Disparities in Smoking Initiation and Progression Among Young Adults.
TLDR
Cigarette prices in late adolescence were associated with a prospective reduction in cigarette smoking initiation and progression among young adults, with limited differences across sociodemographic characteristics. Expand
Initiation Age, Cumulative Prevalence, and Longitudinal Patterns of Handgun Carrying Among Rural Adolescents: A Multistate Study.
TLDR
Rural adolescent handgun carrying is not uncommon and warrants etiologic research for developing culturally appropriate and setting-specific prevention programs. Expand
Relationship Between Recency and Frequency of Youth Cannabis Use on Other Substance Use.
TLDR
Past-year tobacco and alcohol use, and past-year misuse of prescription sedatives or tranquilizers, stimulants, and opioids were associated with increased adjusted relative risk ratios across all levels of cannabis use compared to youth reporting no lifetime cannabis use. Expand
Implementing the Communities That Care Prevention System: Challenges, Solutions, and Opportunities in an Urban Setting.
TLDR
A process evaluation of Communities That Care implementation within a Midwestern ethnically diverse, urban community finds that an effective community prevention plan may need to address structural as well as social determinants of well-being among youth and their families. Expand
Community Change Programs for Children and Youth At-Risk: A Review of Lessons Learned.
TLDR
Analysis of program characteristics enables identifying relevant aspects of these programs for use by policy, governmental, and nonprofit sector stakeholders seeking to develop similar programs. Expand

Variation in the Sustained Effects of the Communities That Care Prevention System on Adolescent Smoking, Delinquency, and Violence
TLDR
Variation in the sustained effects of CTC on tenth-grade cigarette use and delinquent and violent behaviors is examined to understand for whom it is most effective and whether it fails to produce change or leads to iatrogenic effects for certain categories of individuals. Expand
Results of a type 2 translational research trial to prevent adolescent drug use and delinquency: a test of Communities That Care.
TLDR
Using the CTC system to reduce health-risking behaviors in adolescents can significantly reduce these behaviors communitywide. Expand
Effects of Communities That Care on Males’ and Females’ Drug Use and Delinquency 9 Years After Baseline in a Community-Randomized Trial
TLDR
Communities using CTC may need to extend their prevention planning to include the high school years to sustain effects on drug use and delinquency beyond high school for both genders. Expand
Effects of the Communities That Care Model in Pennsylvania on Change in Adolescent Risk and Problem Behaviors
TLDR
Community coalitions can affect adolescent risk and protective behaviors at a population level when evidence-based programs are utilized and CTC represents an effective model for disseminating such programs. Expand
Sustained decreases in risk exposure and youth problem behaviors after installation of the Communities That Care prevention system in a randomized trial.
TLDR
Using the Communities That Care system can produce enduring reductions in community-wide levels of risk factors and problem behaviors among adolescents beyond the years of supported implementation, potentially contributing to long-term public health benefits. Expand
Effects of the Communities That Care Model in Pennsylvania on Youth Risk and Problem Behaviors
TLDR
Evidence of CTC effects for grade cohorts that received evidence-based programs was even stronger, suggesting that community coalitions can affect adolescent public health problems at a population level, especially when evidence- based programs are utilized. Expand
Testing the Universality of the Effects of the Communities That Care Prevention System for Preventing Adolescent Drug Use and Delinquency
TLDR
Interaction analyses of data from a panel of 4,407 students followed from Grade 5 to Grade 8 in the first randomized trial of CTC suggests that CTC reduced students’ substance use and delinquency equally across risk-related subgroups and gender, with two exceptions. Expand
Effects of Exposure to the Communities That Care Prevention System on Youth Problem Behaviors in a Community-Randomized Trial: Employing an Inverse Probability Weighting Approach
TLDR
Results from inverse probability weighted multilevel models indicated larger effects for youth who remained in their study community for the first 2 years of CTC intervention implementation compared to ITT estimates, which strengthen support for CTC as an efficacious system for preventing youth problem behaviors. Expand
Youth problem behaviors 8 years after implementing the communities that care prevention system: a community-randomized trial.
TLDR
Using the CTC system continued to prevent the initiation of adolescent problem behaviors through 12thgrade, 8 years after implementation of CTC and 3 years after study-provided resources ended, but did not produce reductions in current levels of risk or current prevalence of problem behavior in 12th grade.

Design and Analysis of the Community Youth Development Study Longitudinal Cohort Sample
TLDR
The rationale, multilevel analyses, and baseline comparability for the study's longitudinal cohort design indicated that students in CTC and control communities exhibited no significant differences in baseline levels of student outcomes. Expand
