"CIFFTA-Treatment: Culturally Informed, Flexible Family Therapy for Adolescents”, Daniel Santisteban, PhD, PI

This randomized clinical trial , funded by NIDA, uses the CIFFTA intervention for adolescents 14-17 who have been diagnosed with a Substance Abuse Disorder.

Hispanic youth and families are randomized into either the CIFFTA treatment or Traditional Family Therapy. Families are assessed at baseline, 4, 6 and 12 months to evaluate effects on reducing substance use, risky sexual behaviors, and related behavior problems.
