Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Intervening to reduce adolescent substance abuse: A grant proposal
by Rakusin, Lisa L., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 105; 1490329
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund an adolescent substance abuse program to provide services to adolescents who have been identified as having substance abuse problems by an agency in Orange County, California. The proposed program incorporates a comprehensive assessment tool, the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs (GAIN) and an evidence-based treatment intervention, the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (ACRA). The program is designed to support adolescents and assist them in maintaining their sobriety by teaching skills that promote abstinence, positive social activity, positive peer relationships, and improved family relationships. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
