The terrible dangers of substance abuse are magnified during adolescence, when disrupting the development of critical physical, mental, emotional, and social skills magnifies the potential for physical and psychosocial harm. The three primary causes of adolescent mortality -- injury, suicide, and homicide -- are all associated with substance abuse. These distinguished contributors -- all with extensive hands-on clinical experience, and some with first-hand experience as recovering substance abusers -- combine the exceptionally complex theory with the practice of diagnosing, evaluating, and treating adolescents with substance abuse disorders. Using clinical case vignettes to illustrate the difficulty of daily care for substance-abusing adolescents, the authors also include practical advice on how to select the best treatment for these patients. A remarkably broad range of topics is presented: ? Epidemiological data about incidence and prevalence in the general population; risk factors such as genetics, family/environment, and availability; specific drugs and routes of abuse, diagnosis using DSM IV criteria versus those of the chemical dependency community, and dual diagnosis? Role of the primary care physician, including techniques for diagnosis in the office or general hospital setting; the ideal evaluation, explaining how to compromise on cost while still ensuring quality care; effective treatment planning and case management? Inpatient (including methods to accommodate today's dramatically shorter stays) and outpatient (from daily hospital programs to weekly 12-step meetings) treatment settings and the often-controversial option of psychopharmacology? Spiritual (i.e., nontheological) treatment, which -- especially for adolescents -- enhances treatment outcomes; and family therapy, identifying beliefs and practices that predispose the adolescent patient to reinitiate or continue abusing drugs? Relapse management, emphasizing its usefulness in preventing future relapses and revealing other diagnoses for further treatment; and the developmental perspective, which determines the level of developmental arrest, enabling the clinician to design treatment on the patient's appropriate functional level? A practical and clinically integrated case vignette approach to reviewing the knowledge from previous chapters, in which readers analyze the clinical information, decide on treatment, and compare their results with the authors' actual treatment. This wide-ranging text details how to cope in this difficult and constantly evolving era of managed care in which cutting costs often takes precedence over providing appropriate patient care. With its clear prose and detailed case vignettes, this volume offers an extra dimension of knowledge and skill to students and clinicians alike, especially child psychiatrists, addiction specialists, pediatricians, family medicine physicians, drug abuse counselors, and social and juvenile justice workers.

Biological, psychological and social factors are considered in this volume in its exploration of adolescent substance abuse, with adolescents presented as a clearly defined group with unique needs and concerns. The author examines issues such as assessment, treatment planning, service provision and the recovery process, and proposes creative treatment approaches. Integrating the complex elements which impact upon the initiation, maintenance and treatment of young substance abusers, the author uses his biopsychosocial model to examine normative issues for adolescents and how impairment in these areas can cause - or be the result of - substance abuse. Consideration is also given to particularly vulnerable young people, such a

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. In recognition of the importance of developing reliable, valid, and clinically useful instruments as well as procedures for screening adolescents for substance use disorders, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) in 1992 convened a Panel of experienced researchers and clinicians who work with troubled youths and their families. A year later, CSAT convened another Panel that examined substance use disorder treatment for adolescents and outlined state-of-the-art treatment guidelines. Two Treatment Improvement Protocols (TIPs 3 and 4) were developed from these efforts. Given the continued significance of assessment and treatment of adolescents' substance use, CSAT convened another Panel in 1997 to update both of the earlier TIPs. This TIP should be viewed as a companion volume to TIP 32, Treatment of Adolescents With Substance Use Disorders (CSAT, 1999), which updates TIP 4. The original Panel on adolescent substance use screening and assessment had two goals. The first was to discuss the problems of adolescent substance use disorders from the viewpoints of the Panel Members, who come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and specialty areas. The emphasis was on practical clinical procedures to help treatment providers improve care. A second goal for the Panel was to review, from a practical perspective, available instruments, procedures, and measures for assessing adolescent substance use in various settings, including rehabilitation, that could be used easily by clinicians and other workers in the field. The Revision Panel preserved the original goals but also incorporated new research, updated summaries of previously listed instruments, and added recently developed tools. This TIP incorporates the deliberations of the 1992 Consensus Panel and the 1997 Revision Panel. It concentrates on the strategies, procedures, and instruments that are appropriate for the initial detection of substance-using adolescents, the comprehensive assessment of their problems, and subsequent treatment planning. Although the TIP summarizes many instruments, it does not endorse any screening or assessment tools. The purposes of the TIP are several: (1) To provide general guidelines for evaluating, developing, and administering screenings and assessment instruments and processes for those who screen and assess young people for substance use disorders (2) To inform a wide range of people whose work brings them in contact with adolescents in problem situations (e.g., teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses, police probation officers, coaches, and family service workers) about the processes, methods, and tools available to screen for potential substance use problems in adolescents (3) To discuss strategies and accepted techniques that can be used by treatment personnel to detect related problems in the adolescent's life, including problems with family and peers, and psychiatric issues, and to see that these problems are dealt with during the primary intervention for a substance use disorder (4) To outline a screening and assessment system designed to identify those youths with potential substance use problems in various settings Adolescents differ from adults physiologically and emotionally and are covered by different laws and social services. This revised TIP is designed to help juvenile justice, health and human service, and substance use disorder treatment personnel better identify, screen, and assess people 11 to 21 years old who may be experiencing substance-related problems. The TIP details warning signs of substance use disorders among adolescents, when to screen, when to assess, what domains besides substance use to assess, and how to involve the family and other collaterals. Also covered are the legal issues of screening and assessing teenagers, including confidentiality, duty to warn, and how to communicate with other agencies. The TIP also includes a chapter specifically for those working in the juvenile justice system who want to improve their screening and assessment procedures. Appendix A lists the citations referred to throughout this TIP and relevant to the instrument summaries. Appendix B provides up-to-date summaries of instruments relevant for screening and comprehensively assessing substance-abusing adolescents. Appendix C contains excerpts from "Drug Testing of Juvenile Detainees," a publication prepared by the American Correctional Association and the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc., under a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. This document, Treatment of Adolescents With Substance Use Disorders, is a revision and update of Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 4, published in 1993 by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Like TIP 4, this document aims to help treatment providers design and deliver better services to adolescent clients with substance use disorders. In 1992, CSAT convened a Consensus Panel of experts on adolescent substance use disorder treatment to produce guidelines for treatment programs on designing and delivering effective services to adolescent clients. The clients addressed in the TIP included, among others, young people involved with the juvenile and criminal justice systems. CSAT also intended for the Panel's guidelines to help governmental agencies and treatment providers establish, fund, operate, monitor, and evaluate treatment programs for substance-using adolescents. The result of that Panel's work was TIP 4, Guidelines for the Treatment of Alcohol- and Other Drug-Abusing Adolescents. In July 1997, CSAT convened a small Revision Panel to review TIP 4. The Panel recommended changes and developed content for this revised TIP. Since the publication of TIP 4, the understanding of substance use disorders and its treatment among adolescents has advanced. More is known today about the immediate and long-term physiologic, behavioral, and social consequences of use, abuse, and dependency. New research attention has begun to examine the effectiveness of various treatment methods and components that meet the specific treatment needs of substance-using adolescents, and this literature is reviewed. However, the literature is small. Fortunately, a large multisite, national study on the effectiveness of treatment for adolescent substance users is underway with funds from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. CSAT is also conducting studies on adolescents, focusing on marijuana treatment, diversion programs in the juvenile justice system (JJS), and exemplary treatment programs. The field will likely mature greatly by the knowledge advanced from these studies. The structure of the earlier TIP of separate inpatient and outpatient treatment chapters, which represented a continuum of service intensity, was viewed by the Revision Panel to be less central to treatment decisions than a continuum based on the severity of the substance use disorder. This shift in focus better reflects clinical experience, extant treatment research, and the recent changes regarding reimbursement by health care payors for treatment. However, the Revision Panel retained a broad definition of treatment. Treatment is defined in this TIP as those activities that might be undertaken to deal with problem(s) associated with substance involvement and with individuals manifesting a substance use disorder. Although the Panel recognizes that primary or secondary prevention of substance use are included in expanded definitions of treatment, the Panel limited the continuum of interventions to what is traditionally viewed as acute intervention, rehabilitation, and maintenance. The elements of the continuum primarily reflect the treatment philosophies of providers, with less emphasis on settings and modalities. In addition to defining the treatment needs of adolescents and providing a full description of the use of the severity continuum, the Revision Panel focused attention on three common types of treatment for adolescents today: 12-Step-based treatment, treatment in the adolescent therapeutic community, and family therapy. The 12-Step model lies at the heart of many adolescent treatment programs. Therapeutic communities (TCs) are an intensive type of residential treatment that is attracting attention as a preferred approach for substance-using juveniles incarcerated in the justice system. Clinicians have found that effective treatment of the adolescent almost always involves the family, and the effectiveness of family therapy has been documented extensively, particularly among those substance-using adolescents who are normally the most difficult to treat. This revision of the earlier TIP, then, offers guidelines for using the severity continuum to make treatment decisions and for providing three common models of treatment for adolescents with substance use disorders. Recommendations of the Revision Panel, supported by extensive clinical experience and the literature, are summarized below. The organization of this TIP reflects the core facets of initiating, engaging, and maintaining the change process for youths with substance use disorders. Chapter 1 details the scope and complexity of the problem. Chapter 2 covers factors considered in making treatment decisions, and Chapter 3 details the features of successful programs. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 introduce and describe the treatment approaches used in 12-Step-based treatment, therapeutic communities, and family therapy, respectively. Chapter 7 discusses adolescents with distinctive treatment needs, such as youths involved in the juvenile justice system, homeless and runaway youth, and youth with coexisting disorders. Chapter 8 describes the legal and ethical issues that relate to diagnosis and treatment of adolescents. This new TIP derives from CSAT's intention to provide protocols that reflect the work now being done by providers of high-quality treatment. As with other TIPs, this document brings the best knowledge from the field to State and local treatment programs. In order to avoid awkward construction and sexism, this TIP alternates between "he" and "she" for generic examples. The companion document, TIP 31, Screening and Assessing Adolescents for Substance Use Disorders, a revision of TIP 3, has also been published (CSAT, 1999).

Though a number of books covering adolescent substance abuse are available, there are very few resources that explore the topic in the context of Family Systems Therapy (FST). Youth and Their Families offers an expanded view of the therapeutic process with a specific focus on the relationship between therapists, adolescents, families, communities, and substance use. By applying an FST lens, the clinician learns to view their client as an entire family system being affected by adolescent substance abuse. Furthermore, FST can be used at every stage of the substance abuse intervention continuum (from prevention to intervention) to provide increased functioning and strength in the family system. This book incorporates easily applicable clinical skill acquisition with the use of lively cases to give the reader requisite skills to be an effective family systems therapist.

"Principles of Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Treatment" focuses on the unique realities of adolescent substance use-which includes abuse of illicit and prescription drugs, alcohol, and tobacco-and the special treatment needs for people aged 12 to 17. The adolescent years are a key window for both substance use and the development of substance use disorders. Brain systems governing emotion and reward-seeking are fully developed by this time, but circuits governing judgment and self-inhibition are still maturing, causing teenagers to act on impulse, seek new sensations, and be easily swayed by their peers-all of which may draw them to take risks such as trying drugs of abuse. What is more, because critical neural circuits are still actively forming, teens' brains are particularly susceptible to being modified by those substances in a lasting way-making the development of a substance use disorder much more likely. In addition, abusing drugs during adolescence can interfere with meeting crucial social and developmental milestones and also compromise cognitive development. Historically the focus with adolescents has tended to be on steering young people clear of drugs before problems arise. But the reality is that different interventions are needed for adolescents at different places along the substance use spectrum, and some require treatment, not just prevention. Scientific research has now established the efficacy of a number of treatment approaches that can address substance use during the teen years. This guide describes those approaches, as well as presents a set of guiding principles and frequently asked questions about substance abuse and treatment in this age group.
