It may be time to question the current traditional treatment of substance use disorders and whether or not the efficacy of treatment of young adults could be increased by taking a more collaborative and developmental stance. Failure to launch is epidemic in young adults and, in most cases, co-occuring with a substance use disorder.
This webinar presents a treatment model that helps young adults move from immaturity or delayed adolescence into independence / adulthood, including career planning, re-entry to college, job counseling, and personality development. This model helps young adults achieve the appropriate level of abstinence from substances while providing counselors a way to approach young adults in a collaborative, respectful, and firm manner.
