Harrison, Patricia A.; Asche, Stephen E.
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v11 n2 p1-17 2001
A statewide treatment outcomes monitoring system included baseline interviews with 387 adolescents and 363 parents representing 37 programs. This study examined adolescent and parent predictors of treatment completion and 6-month outcomes. Only 21.4% of the adolescents reported abstinence for the 6 months following treatment; however, marijuana use frequency, symptom counts, illegal activities, and emotional distress declined significantly.
