Scientifically Proven Outcomes
  • Meta-analysis found only SFP provided
    convincing evidence of long-term effectiveness in
    preventing adolescent substance use and abuse
    (Foxcroft et al., 2003)
  • Economic analysis identified a return of
  • 9.60 for every dollar spent implementing SFP
  • Net benefit of 5923 per youth, and
  • Net benefit of 6541 per family
  • This amount represents costs saved relative to
    arrest, incarceration, adjudication, victims'
    costs, future earnings, tax revenue and decreased
    public assistance.
  • (Spoth, Guyll, Day Washington State Institute of
    Public Policy, 2004 and Penn State Prevention
    Research Center, 2008)
  • Using these figures, we calculate that the
    Extension-led program, which has served over 1800
    families, has provided an estimated benefit of
    nearly 12 million for Washington state to date.
