This training provides an overview of the disease of addiction, key issues to be aware of when working with youth struggling with substance use, and how best to support youth in recovery and their families. We will review key risk factors for the development of youth substance use disorders, including early onset, trauma, co-occurring mental health issues, genetics, and environmental factors. We will look at trends of use and best practices for screening, engagement, and referral to treatment. This training will focus on identifying the different levels of care currently available in Massachusetts, licensed by the Bureau of Substance Addiction Services (BSAS)/Office of Youth and Young Adult Services, including detox/stabilization, residential treatment, recovery high schools, and outpatient services.  Peer recovery supports and family recovery resources will also be identified. 

This training is aimed towards anyone working with youth and young adults; prior knowledge is not required.
