Expanding the Treating Teens guide to inform stakeholders in adolescent substance abuse fields

Under a previous grant, Drug Strategies sought to obtain and evaluate information on adolescent-specific treatment programs and information on content, cost treatment philosophy, and other issues. Key findings were contained in Treating Teens: A Guide to Adolescent Drug Programs. That guide to drug treatment programs for teens was disseminated at a press conference at the National Press Club, on January 14, 2003. This grant provides additional support to prepare the guide to target physicians, juvenile judges, and state alcohol and drug abuse directors. Drug Strategies will conduct at least two workshop presentations at regional and national meetings of key associations in the field, and will prepare articles for submission to relevant medical and legal journals.
