Summary/Abstract: The present report discusses the potential and the specific implications of evidence-based psychosocial interventions in the process of treatment of alcohol and drug-abusing adolescents.

The possibility for implementation of these approaches among the Bulgarian drug-abusing adolescents has been discussed as well as the necessity for research of the effectiveness of the interventions for this specific population.
