Objective: To examine the promise and pitfalls of using multi-component motivational stages framework for tailoring alcohol prevention programs. Methods: Review empirical research examining intra-drug-use stages of acquisition and testing the efficacy of stage-tailored interventions.

Five randomized trials showed that stage-based preventive interventions resulted in significant alcohol reductions. Conclusions: Recommendations for future stage-related prevention research and practice are discussed.
