Roundtable to promote healthy living among adolescents in drug treatment and juvenile justice institutions

Phoenix House, a provider of drug and alcohol treatment and prevention services, convened a day-long roundtable meeting, "Promoting Healthy Living Among Adolescents in Substance Abuse Treatment and Juvenile Justice Settings," in June 2006 in Princeton, N.J., to discuss ways in which alcohol and drug treatment programs can promote healthy, active living among adolescent clients.

Seventeen national experts—in the fields of adolescent development, health education, substance abuse treatment, nutrition and active living—participated.
