“This is the first book to provide detailed, pragmatic guidelines for implementing contingency management (CM) with this population. CM is highly efficacious for treating substance use disorders and can be integrated with virtually any other form of therapy, including cognitive-behavioral and family interventions. Filled with worksheets and real-life examples, the book will help therapists apply CM within a comprehensive adolescent treatment program.”

—Nancy M. Petry, PhD, Professor of Medicine, UConn Health

“An instructive, practical, and hands-on guide. The manual is well grounded in principles of behavioral management and cognitive-behavior therapy, as well as a clear understanding of the myriad factors that support adolescent drug use. Contingency management is uniquely well suited to treating adolescent drug use, making this manual a 'must' for anyone who works with—or is training to work with—this population of youths and their families.”

—Maxine Stitzer, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

“Contingency management is an evidence-based treatment that aims to ameliorate risk factors and constructively facilitate teens' efforts to lead drug-free lives. It is based on proven behavioral and cognitive-behavioral principles. This book is a godsend for practitioners seeking a comprehensive manual with step-by-step instructions for treating teens with substance use problems.”

—Michael Windle, PhD, Rollins Endowed Professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Emory University

“A terrific contribution to the field. Henggeler and his associates combine an excellent review of CM for substance abuse with a wonderful how-to guide for clinicians who want to implement this efficacious treatment method with adolescents. The reader is walked through the process step by step: why to use CM, how to get started, how to talk about the approach with clients, and how to avoid pitfalls and overcome challenges. This book will be extraordinarily helpful for clinicians and for the adolescents and families they treat.”

—Roger D. Weiss, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Chief, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, McLean Hospital

“While other CM books are available, this is the only one that specifically targets adolescent substance abuse. The book is ideally suited for the busy clinician in that it is light on theory and heavy on practical, tangible applications and solutions. Henggeler and colleagues have provided a wealth of resources, including suggested therapist tasks; troubleshooting tips; checklists, forms, and handouts; and sample dialogues. This book is an excellent choice for practitioners interested in implementing CM with their clients. In addition, it would serve well as a supplemental text in graduate courses on adolescent treatment or substance abuse treatment.”

—Brian E. Bride, PhD, LCSW, School of Social Work, University of Georgia
