Adolescents’ drug use and treatment needs differ from adults. For example, adolescents ages 12-17 are more likely to receive treatment for marijuana use than for alcohol use than are adults. As opposed to adults, youth are less likely to report drug withdrawal symptoms and or report continuing drug use despite physical or mental health problems. Adolescents also are more likely than adults to hide their substance abuse and to continue to use despite fights or legal trouble (National Institute on Drug Abuse).

 

This webinar will describe the common profiles of adolescents presenting for treatment, review the impact of substance use on adolescent development and discuss evidence-based treatments and guidelines for adolescents with substance use disorders. A case example will be used to demonstrate different approaches to treatment. The research evidence behind effective and cost-effective treatment for adolescents with substance use disorders will also be reviewed. This webinar is intended to help both experienced and novice practitioners develop knowledge and skills to work more effectively with adolescents with substance use disorders.
