Principles of Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Treatment: Behavioral Approaches


Assignment 4.1 Treating Adolescent Substance Use Disorders


To provide an understanding of adolescent treatment behavioral approaches. Behavioral interventions help adolescents to actively participate in their recovery from drug abuse and addiction and enhance their ability to resist drug use. In such approaches, therapists may provide incentives to remain abstinent, modify attitudes and behaviors related to drug abuse, assist families in improving their communication and overall interactions, and increase life skills to handle stressful circumstances and deal with environmental cues that may trigger intense craving for drugs.

Step 1:

Read Principles of Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Treatment: A Research-Based Guide–Behavioral Approaches

  • Contingency Management (CM)
  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
  • Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy
    • How would you best use the behavioral approach that you chosen?
    • Why do you feel the behavioral approach that you chose would be more successful than the other behavioral approaches?
