Substance use disorders are most often accompanied by a history of trauma and mental health disorders.  How can we promote recovery in all areas, especially when engaging with and treating youth and young adults?


This training examines the relationship between mental health disorders, trauma history, and substance use disorders in youth and young adults. We will review current data, trends, and complexities of these related developmental disorders and their implications for the recovery process.  We will review past and current models of treatment for co-occurring disorders, highlighting integrated treatment.  We will discuss the principles for treating co-occurring disorders and evidence-based practices for treatment.  Peer support resources and the BSAS continuum of care for youth and young adults will also be reviewed.


This training is intended for professionals (clinicians, social workers, school counselors or nurses, clergy, case managers, etc.), community members, parents, and anyone seeking to support youth and young adults with co-occurring disorders.
