Effective Approaches to Engaging and Treating Teens

DOWNLOAD FLYER : Improving Care of Adolescents with Substance Use Disorders (SUDs)
Adolescents who use alcohol and other drugs often experience multiple problems such as academic difficulties, family conflict, poor peer relationships, mental health problems, and involvement with the juvenile justice system. Substance use treatment can help improve adolescent outcomes but unfortunately, only 1 in 10 teens with a substance use disorder (SUD) will receive any treatment.
Maine Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services, in Partnership with the New England ATTC, is excited to present a conference designed for treatment providers and health care professionals who are looking to improve the care of adolescents affected by or at risk of substance use disorders.
Regional and National experts in the treatment and care of adolescents with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health problems will explore evidenced based approaches to treating and engaging adolescents and their families. This information packed day will include such timely topics as Marijuana in the Context of Legalization and Working with LGBTQA Youth.
This conference is relevant for professionals from a broad range of settings such as substance use treatment agencies, behavioral health care agencies, juvenile justice, schools, primary care, child welfare, hospitals, and other allied health settings.
This conference is funded in part through the State Youth Treatment – Implementation (SYT-I) cooperative agreement with the Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and supported by AdCare Educational Institute of Maine.
