SUMMARY

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.

Key Results

  • Project staff commissioned a report: Promoting Healthy Living among Adolescents in Substance Abuse Treatment and Juvenile Justice Settings: Views from the Field.
  • Roundtable discussions were summarized in a report: Promoting Healthy Living Adolescents in Substance Abuse Treatment and Juvenile Justice Settings: Report from a Roundtable Meeting.
  • Phoenix House commissioned a literature review to inform further discussions: Promoting Wellness among Adolescents in Substance Abuse Treatment Programs: A Review of the Empirical Literature.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported the meeting with a grant of $49,200 from July 2005 to August 2006.
