Drs. Becker and Helseth have a new publication in the Substance Abuse Journal!

Congratulations to Sara Becker and Sarah Helseth on their new publication in Substance Abuse! Studying moderators of treatment outcome is important to help match patients to treatment. This study found that families with poor parent-teen communication and those with low levels of deviant peer affiliation had better outcomes if the parent received a brief motivational intervention than if they received brief education.  https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/08897077.2020.1742271
