Summary
"Exploring current issues of drug use by young people, Intervening With Drug-Involved Youth provides a special analysis of the problem by an outstanding group of experts in the field. Noteworthy topics considered include the scope of the problem, prevention and treatment initiatives, and international perspectives. The contributors examine what programs have proved effective and which initiatives lack the outcome necessary to reduce drug use among youths. Prevention and treatment strategies analyzed include school- and street-based programs operated by law enforcement, family therapy, residential approaches, programs in Brazil and India, and more. This comprehensive volume also features a fascinating and thorough introduction on the history of drug use, giving the reader a frame of reference for understanding drug-involved youth and options for intervention. Prevention of other high-risk behaviors, including those that increase risk of contracting HIV, are also considered." "Intervening With Drug-Involved Youth is an essential resource for drug abuse counselors, clinicians, and researchers and provides an organized overview of specific interventions that will be useful in college courses in counseling, social work, family therapy, drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, and criminology."--Jacket
