There is an urgent need to expand substance misuse and related services to address the multiple problems experienced by youths entering the juvenile justice system. In particular, innovative efforts are needed in which staff working with delinquent youths and their families are trained to provide treatment, and to link them with additional community services. We discuss a few of these programs and provide a focused bibliography for further use.
