Implementing Family-Focused Interventions in Primary Health Care to Prevent Substance Use Disorders in Adolescence

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will conduct a two-day workshop to examine evidence-based interventions that can support parents and family members in preventing substance use disorders among adolescents. The workshop — which will involve researchers; parent and family organizations; federal, state, and local officials; Capitol Hill staff; and health care providers — will explore the reasons why such interventions have not been widely used in primary care settings and ways to encourage their adoption.
