Course Description: Although adolescent substance use has decreased in recent years it remains strongly correlated to adverse outcomes and causes of premature mortality during this life stage. Describing the elements of effective treatment delivery for outpatient treatment programs benefits researchers and clinicians. A review of comparative trials between 2014 and 2017 shows that treatment selection guidelines have remained fundamentally stable and novel stand-alone approaches are showing promise as alternatives to existing evidence-based programs. Further research is needed to explore culturally tailored interventions and integrated treatment programming for at risk adolescents.
- Describe the three treatment delivery factors that impact treatment outcomes for evidence-based approaches.
- Identify 2 culturally tailored intervention strategies that are in need of further evaluation.
- Compare and contrast multicomponent and multidomain treatments for adolescent substance use.
- Read and understand Evidence base on outpatient behavioral treatments for adolescent substance use, 2014–2017: Outcomes, treatment delivery, and promising horizons.
- Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives.
- Reflect on the methodology quality and effectiveness of existing outpatient treatments for adolescent substance use.
- Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article.
- Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the key factors of treatment that differentiate well-established from probably and possibly efficacious outpatient treatment programs for adolescent substance use.
