The purpose of this study is to present the adaptation process of the Brazilian version of the manual Brief Intervention for Adolescent Alcohol and Drug Use. In the original version, developed in the United States, the session format is individual, and so, another objective was to adapt the manual for the group format. The protocol provides for four sessions, two of which involve participation of parents/guardians. The process was carried out in three stages: 1) translation and back-translation of the manual and adaptation of interventions and resources; 2) expert review of the material; 3) verification of intervention adequacy through two pilot studies, the first in an individual format and the second in a group format. The results evidenced the adequacy of the manual revision for the Brazilian context and for use in groups.
