Substance use in high school: Tip of the iceberg, rite of passage, or something else?

Substance use among adolescents in schools is sometimes the tip of an iceberg. In this workshop we will explore what drugs we are seeing kids use today, the trends in substance use and its prevalence and incidence. Then we will look under water at why they are doing it, who they are, and what are the complicated demands of adolescence today. The workshop will explore some theories of drug use and addiction. It will examine diagnosis and assessment, treatment options, and levels of care. We will briefly consider prevention and how to talk to adolescents about drug and alcohol use.
