Parents Of Adolescents With Substance Abuse Concerns

My name is Camille Liberatore and I am a doctoral student at Adler University pursuing my PsyD in Clinical Psychology.  I am currently seeking to recruit interested individuals to participate in my dissertation, which is a study focusing on the lived experiences of mothers and fathers of adolescents with significant substance abuse difficulties.  The purpose of my study is to gain insight into the emotional experiences, coping strategies, and needs of mothers and fathers of adolescents who abuse substances.

I am looking for participants who meet the following criteria:

  1. Parent of an adolescent of the same gender who struggles with substance abuse (ages 13-21).
  2. Substance abuse must have occurred over a period of six months or longer during which time the adolescent lived in the same home as the parent participant.
  3. The adolescent must have undergone treatment for substance abuse at least once.

Eligible participants will be invited to participate in an approximately 45-minute to one-hour interview via Zoom in which I will be asking questions related to your experiences as a parent when your child was struggling with substance abuse. 

All participants who complete the interview will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon!
