The Addiction Studies Concentration in the Undergraduate Studies Program Presents:

“Adolescent Treatment: From Intervention to Aftercare”

In treatment, adolescents must be approached differently than adults because of their unique developmental issues, contradictions in their values and belief systems, and environmental considerations.

This presentation will discuss the need for comprehensive, clinically-based treatment options for adolescents and their families. Also discussed will be the effectiveness of a multi-modal approach to treating complex issues that relies on a team approach, including family members, previous treatment professionals, teachers, community experts, and a treatment team of clinicians.

Free and all are welcome. An RSVP is required to secure a seat.

RSVP by Tuesday, April 15th to dwilliams8@antioch.edu
