Substance use disorder affects numerous adolescents and researching the most effective intervention is crucial to the rehabilitation of these individuals. This purpose of this study is to offer information about the prevalence of substance use in adolescents as well as the interventions that are available to them and to outline the most effective methods of these interventions. This paper includes a review of evidence based interventions of multiple interventions that are currently used to treat adolescents with substance use disorder and a qualitative study of five individuals who work in social service agencies that offer treatment and interventions to adolescents who are suffering from substance use disorder.
