Parent Training Plus Contingency Management for Substance Abusing Families: A Complier Average Causal Effects (CACE) Analysis
Children of substance abusers are at risk for behavioral/emotional problems.

CM provided incentives for daily monitoring of parenting and child behavior, completion of home practice assignments, and session attendance.
