This article addresses the ongoing debate about the effectiveness of multisystemic treatment (MST) by examin ing school enrolment at age 18 among youths who have received MST. The analyses are restricted to youths who engage in antisocial behaviour and/or substance abuse. We used propensity score matching to compare s chool enrolment between youths who had received MST and a control group who had not receiv ed MST . The analyses of population data showed a somewhat lower school enrolment in the MST group compared with youth s receiving treatment as usual.
