Based on a nine-step intervention program developed by the three therapist-authors, BEST offers strategies for helping parents cope with their child's substance abuse.

It also features:

A harm reduction framework
Origins of substance abuse among young people and an overview of the different kinds of drugs
Case studies drawing on the authors' own experiences with the program
Communication and conflict resolution skills

BEST consists of eight sessions that cover:

Group introduction
Substance abuse and the family
Adolescent development
Choices, responsibility and consequences
Encouraging responsible adolescents
Implementing family change strategies
Group completion and future planning

With its foundation in real-world practice, BEST is a highly useful resource for reducing stresses in families touched by substance abuse.
