Substance use is prevalent among adolescents and poses risks to their health and well being. Adults who work with adolescents are in a unique position to help, but often feel at a loss how to do so effectively, in a short amount of time, and without appearing judgmental. This presentation will address how to identify risky substance use, how to facilitate a brief conversation to enhance motivation to change, and how to avoid common pitfalls of talking with adolescents about substance use.


  • Use a validated tool that quickly screens adolescents for substance use
  • Perform a high quality brief intervention (conversation) with adolescents
  • Help adolescents identify goals that reduce harm from substance use
