Background: This paper compares adolescents with primary opioid problem use (OPU) to those with primary marijuana or alcohol problem use (MAPU) who received up to six months of Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), an empirically supported treatment. Methods: Intake clinical characteristics, treatment implementation measures, and clinical outcomes of two substance problem groups (OPU and MAPU) were compared using data from 1712 adolescents receiving A-CRA treatment.

Figures and Tables from this paper


An independent replication of the Adolescent-Community Reinforcement Approach with justice-involved youth.
Results are consistent with studies conducted by A-CRA/ACC model developers supporting the effectiveness of the clinical approach and are encouraging for the transportation potential of A-cra/ACC. Expand
The added risk of opioid problem use among treatment-seeking youth with marijuana and/or alcohol problem use.
The findings expand upon the existing literature and highlight the substantial incremental risk of OPU on multiple comorbid areas among treatment-seeking youth. Expand
Treatment outcome for street-living, homeless youth.
This study indicates that homeless youth can be engaged into treatment and respond favorably to intervention efforts, however, more treatment development research is needed to address the barriers associated with serving these youth. Expand
Preliminary outcomes from the assertive continuing care experiment for adolescents discharged from residential treatment.
Preliminary findings demonstrate an ACC approach designed for adolescents can increase linkage and retention in continuing care and improve short-term substance use outcomes. Expand
The Effects of Age Composition of 12-Step Groups on Adolescent 12-Step Participation and Substance Use Outcome
Findings suggest locating and directing youth to meetings where other youth are present may improve 12-step attendance, involvement, and substance use outcomes. Expand
Clinical characteristics of treatment-seeking adolescents with opioid versus cannabis/alcohol use disorders.
While there were similarities between the two groups, OUD adolescents evidenced greater impairment in academic, substance use, depressive symptom and IDU-related HIV-risk areas, suggest poorer long-term prognosis and highlight the need for specialized interventions for treatment-seeking O UD adolescents.

Clinical Characteristics and Treatment Outcomes of Adolescent Heroin Users
Although adolescent heroin users appear to represent a distinct subpopulation with multiple indicators of heightened severity, they respond to treatment with significant reductions in drug use, psychological symptoms, illegal activities, and overall psychosocial impairment. Expand
The Cannabis Youth Treatment (CYT) Study: main findings from two randomized trials.
Overall, the clinical outcomes were very similar across sites and conditions; however, after controlling for initial severity, the most cost-effective interventions were MET/CBT5 and MET-CBT12 in Trial 1 and ACRA and MET/ CBT5 in Trial 2. Expand
Recovery Support for Adolescents with Substance use Disorders: The Impact of Recovery Support Telephone Calls Provided by Pre-Professional Volunteers.
The present quasi-experiment examined the direct and indirect effects of recovery support telephone calls following adolescent substance use disorder treatment. Six-month outcome data from 202Expand
Heroin use among adolescents in treatment for substance use disorders.
Nationally, there has been an increasing number, but not percentage, of heroin-using youths in treatment between 1992 and 1996 and in 1997 there was an increase in both the number and percentage ofHeroin-using adolescents in treatment. Expand
