James, Philip (2010) Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy with substance abusing adolescents. The Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapist , 13 , (1) , pp. 5-11.

Substance abuse among adolescents is a growing concern in both the UK and Ireland. Both countries consistently report high rates of substance misuse among their teenagers when compared to their European neighbours. As a result many adolescents presenting for therapy may have substance abuse problems making it vital that REBT therapists working with this age group are able to provide appropriate interventions. This article examines adolescent substance misuse and covers many areas including rates of substance abuse, the REBT perspective and research on substance abuse as well as many practical considerations. Finally it makes some suggestions for the development of REBT in this area.
