Identification and Clinical Strategies for Working with Co-Occurring Adolescent Disorders

Current statistics point to rising experimentation, use, and dependency of substances in clients under the age of 25. In fact, this group represents the largest growing segment of the population seeking treatment for substance abuse. Treatment providers struggle to keep up with current trends in both use and treatment and are often unsuccessful in engaging this population. Using case studies and a highly experiential format, participants will learn how to identify adolescents and young adults at risk for substance abuse, common substances of abuse, and strategies to engage the adolescent, family, and community for successful treatment outcomes.
