Girls and Substance Use: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities  (7425)

04/22/2014 3:00 PM - 04/22/2014 4:30 PM

Girls' abuse of substances has been increasing, with dangerous consequences to their health and well-being. Among youth ages 12-17, girls' nonmedical use of prescription painkillers, alcohol, methamphetamine, and most other illicit drugs matches or exceeds
that of boys. Adolescent girls have different intervention, treatment, and recovery support needs from those of adolescent boys or adult women. This webinar will discuss current trends in adolescent girl substance use as well as effective strategies for intervention,
treatment, and support for girls. After completing this webinar, participants will have a working understanding of how the terms gender-responsive, trauma-informed, culturally relevant, recovery-oriented, family-centered, and age-appropriate apply to effective
services for girls. Participants will be able to summarize: - Girls' substance use trends and concerns - Girl-centered responses and interventions - Resources for girls: recovery schools, family interventions, and the Voices Program
