Abstract

Alcohol abuse and its related problems are on the increase in India. Most of the problems can be minimized, by making the public aware of the complications related to alcohol abuse. A descriptive evaluator approach was used for this study. The study was carried out at chova higher secondary school at Kannur among higher school boys. The sample comprised of 100 students. Sample was selected by using convenient sampling technique. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics (paired t-test and regression coefficient). The results of this study showed that school students in general lacked knowledge and attitude (pretest knowledge score is 8.69 and attitude score is 24.98) about alcohol abuse and its adverse effects before the education programme. The findings of this study support the need for conducting educational programme to increase the knowledge and attitude (post-test knowledge score and attitude score is 16.69 and 44.45, t value is 18.937 with regard to knowledge and 29.92 with regard to attitude which is significant at 0.01 level of school students on alcohol abuse and its related problems. Educating the youth and providing them with correct information can help them to avoid bad habits and develop as healthy citizens.
