The Preventive Treatment Program originally received a final program rating of No Effects based on a review of the study by Tremblay and colleagues (1995). A re-review of new research by Boisjoli and colleagues (2007) was conducted in December 2012. Based on the evidence from both studies, the program received a new final rating of Promising. Promising programs have some evidence indicating they achieve their intended outcomes. An additional re-review of new research by Vitaro and colleagues (2013) was conducted in October 2014 and supported the program’s final rating of Promising.
