The purpose of this paper was to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of using the Instrumentalism in Occupational Therapy (IOT) conceptual practice model as a guide for intervention to assist teenagers with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) transition successfully into adulthood. The cost effectiveness analysis was based on a project involving 15 teenagers treated by the first author and a colleague in a Day Treatment Center in a small town in northeast Pennsylvania. The analysis revealed that the cost of intervention per positive effect realized per teenager was US$162.88. Further research is indicated to determine how this effect translates into monetary benefits. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
