Description:

This publication is a systematic Campbell review of the effect of the family therapy approach Family Behavior Therapy (FBT) for treatment for non-opioid drug use (e.g., cannabis, amphetamine, ecstasy or cocaine) among young people aged 11-21 years.
Youth drug use is a severe problem worldwide. Recent reports describe concerning trends in the use of drugs by young people and a lack of available treatment. FBT is a manual-based family therapy approach that seeks to reduce drug use among youth by identifying stimuli and triggers for drug taking, and teaching self-control and other skills to correct the problem behaviors related to drug use. This approach is based on the therapeutic premise that the family carries a profound influence on child and youth development and that interventions need to be flexible and tailored to the unique characteristics of the families. It is also argued that there is a need for interventions to be problem-focused, targeting first those patterns of behavior that most directly influence the youth’s drug use.
