Examples of Treatment
The Cannabis Youth Treatment Series provides a unique perspective on treating adolescents for marijuana use using motivational enhancement therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. We offer 4 phases of treatment which is dependent on the initial substance abuse assessment.
Phase 1 - Motivational Enhancement Therapy/Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Focused on motivation to change; skills to cope with problems and meet their needs in ways that do not involve turning to marijuana or other drugs.
Phase 2 - Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (ACRA)
The adolescent community reinforcement approach is composed of 12 individual sessions with an adolescent and/or the adolescent’s “concerned other.” It focuses on teaching alternative skills to cope with problems and meet needs, with an emphasis on the adolescent’s environment. Concerted effort is made to change environmental contingencies—both positive and negative— related to continued substance use.
Phase 3 - Family Support Network (FSN)
The family support network treatment includes Level 1 treatment, with the provision of additional support for families (home visits, parent education meetings, parent support group), aftercare, and case management)
Phase 4 - Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT)
A family focused treatment that includes 12 weekly sessions to work individually with adolescents and their families. MDFT focuses on family roles, other problem areas, and their interactions
