||Worksite cardiovascular wellness programs as a route to substance abuse prevention
||Jan. 2000, Vol.42, No.1, p.47-56. 26 ref.
||This study addresses the question whether the inclusion of alcohol abuse prevention in worksite cardiovascular wellness programmes is an effective route to the prevention of alcohol abuse. The study population included 2,000 employees, recruited through cardiovascular disease health screening, who were randomly assigned to individual outreach or class interventions. After 3 years of intervention, rescreening results showed significant reductions in cardiovascular health risks and reduced alcohol consumption. As spill-over effects from counselling produced plant-wide improvements, it was not possible to determine if counselling had a better impact than classes.
