NASW-NYS: Adolescents and Addiction: Trends, Treatment Approaches, and Developmental Considerations
Adolescence is a time of constant and significant change. In fact, most people will never experience a more dramatic change than when in their adolescence. So, what’s changing? Everything! Adolescents are simultaneously experiencing biological, psychological, social, and role changes, meaning that their bodies, brains, emotions, relationships, and everything in between are in a state of flux and growth. Substance use during adolescence further complicates – and even disrupts – this process. Youth and young adults who engage in substance misuse or suffer from a substance use disorder (SUD) face additional challenges that impact their ability to successfully navigate their journey into adulthood, but social workers can be a mitigating factor for these young people. This training will provide an overview of addiction in adolescents, including information on current data and trends, co-occurring disorders, trauma, the developing brain, and effective treatment approaches.
