 Adolescent Disruptive Behavior Disorders and Substance Use Disorders

Show Summary Details


This chapter continues the topic of ODD and CD, emphasizing its presentation and treatment in adolescence. It also focuses on substance use disorders given the shared risk factors for both ODD/CD and substance use disorders, and the fact that the disorders are often co-morbid. The chapter reviews the evidence basis for the treatment of these disorders in adolescence. Cognitive-behavioral individual approaches and multi-dimensional family theoretical approaches predominate in this literature. These interventions are evaluated against how well they address risk factors for the development of these disruptive behavior disorders and adjustment for afflicted youth. Recommendations for practice and research are explored.
