Associate Professor of Addiction Studies at Turning Point and Monash University David Best said family conflict was strongly linked to the intensity of substance use; and the failure to resolve family issues to ongoing vulnerability and adversity.
"It is unfortunate that many young people were resistant to family members being involved in their treatment and reported that they did not want their family to come to the youth AOD service," he said.
Associate Professor Best said further research was needed to look at tailoring services to meet the needs of young people and also so family members could be more involved.
He said it was important youths with addiction issues engaged treatment agencies, saying they could provide positive changes across a range of complex and vulnerable matters.
"It is seen as valuable and to be recommended, not least because it provides the respite and space young people may feel they need," he said.
