abstract

  • The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of clinical best practices for assessing adolescent drug abuse. To achieve this purpose, a multidimensional model of screening and assessment is proposed. This model provides a theoretical framework sufficiently broad as to be applicable to most research and treatment assessment challenges (Winters, 1999) and to be relevant for problem identification, referral, and treatment. In addition, the chapter highlights clinical challenges and approaches when applying the model.
