Title: Addressing Youth Substance Abuse in the Juvenile Justice System: Reconciling Treatment Court and Clinical Intervention Approaches

Presenters: Jacqueline van Wormer, PhD, Whitworth College

Joshua Leblang, EdS, LMHC, University of Washington

This webinar tackles the complex and high stakes issues of how to best manage youth substance abuse needs for youth who are court-involved. Treatment courts attempt to balance due process with rehabilitation but many advocates are raising concerns that treatment courts may pose more harm than benefit for substance abuse recovery. This webinar brings together national research and clinical experts on the topic. Webinar attendees will get firsthand information about the effective components of juvenile drug courts, the real world challenges of implementing these essential elements, and a clinical overview of the key components need to achieve substance use prevention and recovery outcomes for adolescents.
