The N-O-T program has been implemented and evaluated in several states including Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Multiyear, multistate results suggest it is an effective teen smoking cessation program. Key findings include:
- In the first published evaluation, both chemically validated and self-report measures found that at 8.5 months postbaseline, female N-O-T participants had significantly higher quit rates than females in the comparison group. There were no significant differences in quit rates for male participants.Â (Dino, G., Horn, K., Goldcamp, J.,Â Maniar, S., Fernandes, A., & Massey C.Â (2001).
- In a five-year review of the program including five states, 489 schools, and over 6,000 youth significant results were also found. This review included experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations. The field-based quasi-experimental evaluations found an end-of-program quit rate of 32 percent (n=3761). The controlled or experimental evaluations found an end-of-program N-O-T quit rate of 19 percent, compared to 9 percent in the comparison group. This difference was statistically significant. Over all states, quit rates were similar for both males and females.Â (Horn, K., Dino, G., Kalsekar, I., & Mody, R. (2005).
