Family Support Network for Adolescent Cannabis Users
Nancy L. Hamilton (au)
Substance-abusing adolescents experiencing inadequate family structure and functioning will be at a serious disadvantage with regard to recovery. Their recovery, however, is likely to be enhanced if family functioning can be improved. Deficits in family functioning may be related to dimensions of authority, roles, boundaries, communication, and routines. Parental authority may be eroded and roles confused; boundaries may be blurred or violated; communication may be dysfunctional and conflict laden; and family structure or routine may be lacking. Inadequate parenting skills or poor understanding of family dynamics may also contribute to a chaotic or otherwise dysfunctional family context. This report explains the family support network (FSN) intervention, which seeks to extend the focus of treatment beyond the world of the adolescent by engaging the family, a major system in his or her life.The FSN model uses only a limited number of the more costly inhome therapy sessions coupled with several less costly group sessions. Designed to increase parental support of a child’s recovery, the FSN approach seeks to engage families in the treatment process, improve parents’ competence in supporting their child’s recovery, and shift therapy from time-limited formal treatment to a support group for parents. The FSN process is a family intervention designed to be used in conjunction with any standard adolescent treatment approach. Figures.
