Spiegel, Renee; Mock, William L.
A description of the Youth Services Demonstration Project currently being conducted at Alcoholism Services of Cleveland is presented. The family systems approach model used by the project incorporates the following procedures into a multiphase program: (1) assessment and contracting sessions; (2) selection of one of three possible treatment courses; and (3) follow-up and evaluation of the program. Special issues related to the implementation of this family systems approach include acceptance of the family focus, counselor awareness, choice of co-therapist, and flexibility in treatment planning. Each phase of the treatment is described in detail for the reader. (Author/HLM)
