Abstract

This randomized clinical trial evaluated individual cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), family therapy, combined individual and family therapy, and a group intervention for 114 substance-abusing adolescents. Outcomes were percentage of days marijuana was used and percentage of youths achieving minimal use. Each intervention demonstrated some efficacy, although differences occurred for outcome measured, speed of change, and maintenance of change. From pretreatment to 4 months, significantly fewer days of use were found for the family therapy alone and the combined interventions. Significantly more youths had achieved minimal use levels in the family and combined conditions and in CBT. From pretreatment to 7 months, reductions in percentage of days of use were significant for the combined and group interventions, and changes in minimal use levels were significant for the family, combined, and group interventions.
