Introduction: High-risk behaviors following social problems have grown in all societies in different age and sexual groups. These behaviors are intentional and the person has little control over the possible side effects such behaviors, like smoking, alcohol, drugs, psychotropic drugs, and performing early sexual behaviors. The aim of this study was to analyze family-based care and prevention strategies for high-risk behaviors.
Method: This qualitative study has a hermeneutic and constructive-interpretive paradigm and in-depth and semi-structured interviews were used as data collection techniques. To analyze the data, grounded theory method, with open, axial, and selective coding process was used in order to analyze the data and achieve the final theory. The participants included families from Tabriz and sampling was done through purposeful sampling with the participation of 26 families, until the theoretical saturation was achieved.
Findings: Families are constantly striving to care for their children so that children are raised away from injury and do not engage in risky behaviors. Findings show that families follow the following triple model to take care of appearing high-risk behaviors: 1. Inefficient care strategy (lacking effective strategy); 2. Impulsive care strategy; 3. Process care strategy.
Discussion: Care strategies are created, nurtured, and developed under the influence of the thoughts, attitudes, and experiences of all family members. In families that do not have the ability to make decisions to deal with important and long-term issues such as high-risk behaviors, no strategy will be created. Effective care strategies are shaped by education and socialization.
