This meta-analysis quantitatively synthesized findings from the most current evidence base of adolescent substance use treatment effectiveness research. The objectives of the meta-analysis were to examine the effects of substance use treatment programs on adolescents' subsequent substance use; and to explore variability in these effects across key features of the adolescent populations and treatment programs.
