This chapter describes interventions for adolescent and young adult mothers who are pregnant or parenting and have substance abuse problems. It first considers the specific vulnerabilities of substance-using adolescent and young adult mothers, as well as the components of empirically supported interventions that may inform age-appropriate intervention development. It then discusses specific developmental considerations unique to adolescent and young adult mothers, along with the very few treatment models designed for pregnant and/or parenting adolescents and young adults with substance use problems. It also examines individual risk factors affecting parenting, with particular emphasis on the “dual-development hypothesis,” along with comorbid psychopathology in adolescent mothers. The chapter concludes by suggesting directions for future research.
