I've been interested in whether a focus on personality types might be a better (or at least alternative) way of targeting prevention resources than the traditional risk and protective factors since coming across Patricia Conrod's work in the UK from a few years ago.

I think it's worth looking a what she's found in the various RCTs that she and colleagues have done around the Preventure/Adventure intervention and the use of the Substance Use Risk Profile Scale to try to identify people at higher risk of developing substance misuse problems.
