This study evaluated an expressive arts intervention program ("Colorful Life") for adolescents with addicted parents and parents with addiction in Hong Kong. Different evaluation strategies were employed. Objective outcome evaluation adopting a one group pretest-posttest design showed positive changes in adolescents' (N = 43) beliefs about addiction. Both adolescents' and parents' (N = 21) psychosocial competencies were enhanced post-intervention. Subjective outcome evaluation from both adolescent (N = 47) and parent (N = 22) groups showed positive perceptions of the program content, implementers, and achievement of program objectives. Findings provided preliminary evidence to support and yielded practical implications for the adoption of the multi-addiction syndrome model, positive youth development, and expressive arts approaches in the development of interventions for high-risk adolescents and addictive parents.
