CENTER FOR TREATMENT RESEARCH ON ADOLESCENT DRUG ABUSE

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

We propose establishment of a research center on adolescent drug abuse
treatment research, spanning from treatment development to mechanisms,
evaluation and dissemination. The mission of the Center is to: (1) develop
improved ADA family-based treatments, (2) test the efficacy and
effectiveness of family-oriented as well as existing treatments, (3)
develop a greater understanding of the treatment and patient/family
characteristics that influence treatment outcome, (4) disseminate through
matters related to ADA treatment. Study 1 addresses the clinical and cost
effectiveness of residential treatment compared to an intensive, family-
based, outpatient modality. Study 2 seeks to uncover universal mechanisms
in family therapists' behaviors and family processes that contribute to
early outcomes. The proposed Center is organized into three cores:
Administrative, Methodology, and Treatment Development, Clinical and
Training.

Three programs of family based intervention research have collaborated to
produce this application. These investigators, Liddle, Szapocznik, and
Alexander; have been actively collaborating for over five years. This
collaboration has yielded an integrative perspective on core challenges to
the field which we have formed into this proposal.
