Working With Adolescents: Practice Tips and Resource Guide
The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) recently developed Working with Adolescents: Practice Tips and Resource Guide. This technical assistance (TA) resource provides information to child welfare, substance use treatment providers, healthcare, and other community agencies serving adolescents at risk of misusing or abusing substances. This resource highlights the unique stages of adolescent development including adolescents who may be at risk for substance use or substance use disorders. It also provides a comprehensive array of adolescent services including specialized services in prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery support, terminology, policy considerations, and practice strategies to support those working with adolescents through a family-centered lens.
