Mental health specialists explain that not all use of drugs and alcohol by adolescents is abuse, and that different levels, patterns, and contexts of use should be interpreted and addressed differently. Their topics include screening and brief interventions for adolescent substance use in the general office setting, the pharmacotherapy of adolescent substance use disorders, the adolescent community reinforcement approach and multidimensional family therapy to address relapse during treatment, attention deficit-disruptive behavior disorders and substance use disorders, assessing and treating suicidal behavior, and managing youth with substance use disorders in the juvenile justice system.
