PRESENTATION:   Treating teens at an outpatient level of care is multifaceted and complicated.   Past assumptions of addressing their mental health needs and substance use in silos is no longer an effective strategy.  We will discuss the complexity of treating co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders commonly found in teens.  A hybridization of treatment specifically designed to address the unique biological, psychological and social factors of teens living in today’s world is needed.  We must challenge assumptions and understand the unique pivotal role families, primary care physicians, schools and the legal system provide in the successful treatment of teens.  Setting teens and their families up for long term success is the key focus of this training.  This training will discuss core components and best practices of outpatient adolescent therapy.  As a result of attending this training the participant will be able to:  identify current adolescent substance use and behavioral health trends; review the continuum of substance use for teens, how to accurately assess substance use along the continuum and how to make recommendations for appropriate level of care; understand the importance of family integration and develop specific ways to integrate family; and develop a plan for long term success and healthy relationships.
