Abstract

Objective: The feasibility and acceptability of CHOICES-TEEN—a three-session intervention to reduce overlapping risks of alcohol-exposed pregnancy (AEP), tobacco-exposed pregnancy (TEP), and HIV—was assessed among females in the juvenile justice system. Method: Females aged 14–17 years on community probation in Houston, TX, were eligible if presenting with aforementioned health risks. Outcome measures—obtained at 1- and 3-months postbaseline—included the Timeline Followback, Client Satisfaction Questionnaire-8, session completion/checklists, Working Alliance Inventory–Short, and open-ended questions. Twenty-two participants enrolled (82% Hispanic/Latina; mean age = 16). Results: The results suggest strong acceptability and feasibility with high client satisfaction and client/therapist ratings, 91% session completion, and positive open-ended responses. All youth were at risk at baseline, with the following proportions at reduced risk at follow-up: AEP (90% at 1 month, 71.4% at 3 months), TEP (77% of smokers [n = 17] at reduced risk at 1 month, 50% at 3 months), and HIV (52.4% at 1 month, 28.6% at 3 months).
