The purpose of the project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to design a family-based treatment program for at-risk and economically disadvantaged adolescents and their families who face substance use problems. A search was conducted to locate an appropriate funder for psychoeducation and family-based treatment services for adolescents and their families in the South Bay area in Los Angeles County. A literature review was performed to investigate the effective ways to assist and psychoeducate adolescents and their families on risk factors and protective factors associated with substance use. In addition, previous literature was reviewed to explore existing interventions that treat adolescent substance dependence.
If funded, the proposed program would provide adolescents and their families psychoeducation to decrease or ameliorate their substance use to prevent potential serious problems and develop coping skills needed to manage daily life challenges. Equally important, it is hoped that parents of these adolescents would also gain skills to support their children's efforts to avoid future substance use. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
