Variables Associated with Therapy Attendance in Runaway Substance Abusing Youth: Preliminary Findings.
Slesnick, Natasha
American Journal of Family Therapy, v29 n5 p411-20 Oct-Dec 2001
Evaluated predictors of therapy attendance in a sample of substance abusing youth in two southwestern runaway shelters. Runaway youth and their families were engaged into a 15-session ecologically-based family therapy (EBFT) intervention. Fewer days between pretreatment assessment and first therapy session predicted more sessions attended. No relationship was found between level of substance use and treatment attendance. (BF)
