School-Based Interventions for Students with Substance Abuse
Burrow-Sanchez, Jason J.; Jenson, William R.; Clark, Elaine
Psychology in the Schools, v46 n3 p238-245 Mar 2009
Experimentation with substances is typical for many young people, but unfortunately some will go on to develop substance abuse problems that substantially affect their lives. Successfully intervening with students who use or abuse substances is a challenge for school mental health professionals across the nation. There is a need for evidence-based practices that school professionals can use when working with students who have substance abuse problems. This article provides school professionals in secondary settings with current information on student substance use rates, evidence-based individual and group interventions, and discussion of the 42 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 2 (42 CFR).
