Family Therapy via Video Teleconference for Substance-Abusing Rural Adolescents

Investigators are working to increase access to evidenced-based treatments among rural youth with substance use disorders and to link youth with needed health services.
Details

It is well known that adolescents and families in rural communities face substantial limitations in the availability and accessibility of substance abuse treatment and other health care services. This study addresses this disparity in access to services by investigating the feasibility and efficacy of providing treatment for substance abuse and associated behavioral problems such as delinquency and HIV risk behavior to adolescents in rural areas using web-based video teleconferencing technology.
