Abstract

It is difficult to treat adolescent substance abuse in court mandated first offender and diversionary programs, particularly when the adolescent has no established alcohol or drug history. A family therapy model for working with these "no-problem problem" families is presented, and applications of this model are illustrated through a case example. This model also has applicability, regardless of the presenting problem, to a wide range of families in therapy who do not believe that a problem exists.
