Develop a list with 2–3 researchable questions that you could use to find evidence about the efficacy of 12-step programs or other treatments for substance abuse in adolescents.

    • How might the research that you conducted increase your confidence in the intervention with Tiffani?
    • Is the information provided enough to make a decision regarding interventions? Why or why not
    • Conclusion
