Persistent stubbornness, resistance to directions, an unwillingness to compromise with adults or peers: these are characteristics of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). Youth diagnosed with ODD are likely to experience other disorders such as conduct disorder or ADHD.
To successfully treat mental health disorders in adolescents, it is important to first address any existing substance abuse issues. A module in Hazelden's Adolescent Cooccurring Disorders Series, Substance Use and Oppositional Defiant Disorder provides you with information about ODD, informs you of proven or promising treatments, and includes reproducible workbook pages for client use.
Substance Use and Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a reproducible 50-page workbook of client exercises and facilitator information. The exercises are designed to be used with the help of a counselor, therapist, psychologist, social worker, or physician. This module can be used in numerous settings--schools, criminal justice settings, mental health units, and chemical dependency treatment units. It also works as a self-assessment and learning tool in group or individual settings.
Among the seven session topics: "How Did You Get Here?," "Learning to Make Changes," and "Getting Along with the World." Three-ring binder available separately, or free with the purchase of the entire series (#0391).
