    CD and ODD present unique challenges in both the diagnostic and treatment arenas. The complex network of causes leading to disruptive disorders makes it necessary to structure treatment in a multifaceted manner. The earlier that adolescents are identified as exhibiting disruptive behavior disorders, the better the opportunity to intervene. While early-onset CD is very difficult to treat effectively, the disorder is far more difficult to correct if left untreated and can ultimately lead to ASPD in adulthood. When physicians are presented with behavioral complaints, they must fully assess the adolescent to determine what, if any, referrals and treatments are needed.
