abstract

  • Research has shown that an intervention process with adolescents involving the parents may achieve better results since the interaction with the parents is a protective factor itself. The brief intervention program for adolescents starting substance use is an intervention used in Mexican clinical centers with adolescents who have experienced problems with their substance use but do not present dependency symptoms. The prevention program for parents of adolescents at risk has been applied with the adolescent’s intervention to include the parents in the process, but when analyzing the effectiveness of both interventions, barriers for the implementation arose that made the application impossible. This paper analyzes the main barriers to implementing the intervention program for adolescents when adding a parent component and discusses possible solutions reported in previous literature.
