ORI scientists Erica M. Finstad, Ph.D., and Hy Hops, Ph.D., have just received funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to test a program to help parents engage their substance-abusing youth in treatment. In this two-year feasibility study, Finstad and colleagues will teach family members to recruit treatment-resistant youth into treatment, an innovative strategy that has both short and long term positive implications for public health.
