- 1.) To evaluate the efficacy of AT for youth who have been defined as poor responders to an evidence-based practice intervention such as the initial MET/CBT-7. [ Time Frame: one year ]Each participant will serve as his/her own control. The outcomes will include the T-ASI, T-ASI-P, and drug urinalyses.
- To assess outcomes as a function of mediator variables such as self-efficacy, coping skills, readiness to change, and environmental support (i.e., family and peer), within each of the AT interventions. [ Time Frame: one year ]The secondary outcome measures will include the SCQ, CRI, PRQ, and SSQ.

Ten weekly, 60-minute sessions of augmented individualized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)will be provided as an Adaptive Treatment condition

The study will address the current contrasts in youth response to treatment, the problem of poor response to treatment and the prevention of relapse. Results from the study may support Adaptive Treatment as an efficacious approach for youth with Cannabis Use Disorder who are poor responders to treatment.
Poor responders fall into two categories, those who failed to achieve a negative drug urinalysis during the last session of the initial MET/CBT-7 treatment they attended, and those who either dropped out or were administratively discharged at any time during the initial MET/CBT-7 treatment.
