description:
Adolescent drug abuse continues to be one of the most pressing public health issues in the United States—our nation’s teenagers continue to use illicit drugs at a worrisome rate. Broad reviews of the treatment outcome literature indicate that family interventions in general, and Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) in particular, are effective with drug using youth. This study was designed to compare BSFT to treatment as usual (TAU). The researchers believed that BSFT would be much more effective than TAU in reducing adolescent drug use.
