[No authors listed]

Abstract

This summary describes the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with substance use disorders and is based on scientific evidence regarding diagnosis and effective treatment as well as on the current state of clinical practice. Given the paucity of research on the treatment of substance use disorders in children and adolescents, many of the recommendations are drawn from the adult literature and current clinical practice. This summary considers risk factors for substance use and related problems, normative use of substances by adolescents, the comorbidity of substance use disorders with other psychiatric disorders, and treatment settings and modalities.
