This is volume 3 of a series of 5 treatment guides of interventions for adolescents with cannabis use problems devised in the US (see related publication links below).

This guide describes a twelve session intervention for families for adolescent cannabis users. It is designed to be used alongside the interventions described in Vols 1 & 2 which are focused on the adolescent.

The twelve sessions combine home visits and group sessions for family members. The aim is to support the family network to help maintain changes to the young person’s cannabis use.

The guide contains many useful handouts and resources in addition to the manual for the individual family and group sessions. This intervention can be carried out by drug workers with additional competences and appropriate supervision.
