Recorded: Thursday, March 31, 2022 - Sunday, April 3, 2022
This 1-hour, on-demand session from the ASAM 53rd Annual Conference discusses methods to effectively implement the substance use prevention messaging and converse with middle and high school youth.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused incredible disruption in the lives of young people during a time when they are already vulnerable in their growth, development, and identity. To address the rising concern of substance use during the pandemic, the National Council created a comprehensive message guide and toolkit based upon findings from national assessments of youth and youth-serving providers, key informant discussions, and message testing. The focus of this workshop is the implementation of substance use prevention messaging with middle and high school youth. The continuum of substance use requires a comprehensive approach and early intervention is needed to alleviate work for treatment providers. Participants will have access to a complementary toolkit including clinical and operational resources to support youth-serving providers.
The target audience for this Introductory level session includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and counselors.
