Details

Evidence-based treatments for adolescent substance abuse are successful for some adolescents but not others, with uneven maintenance of gains for those who improve. This clinical trial is designed to broaden the impact and strengthen the durability of effects of adolescent treatments through the use of motivational incentives to accelerate sobriety efforts and other behavioral changes. Integrating contingencies into family-based and cognitive behavioral therapies, the two most common empirically supported interventions for adolescent substance abuse, will ensure that study findings are relevant to the largest segment of adolescent treatment providers.
