Substance Use Support and Education


The Engagement Program utilizes SBIRT, an evidence based intervention focused on providing support to youth ages 13-25 surrounding substance use. This program utilizes motivational interviewing techniques to support youth in moving toward healthier outcomes. The Engagement Program additionally places emphasis on supporting youth by increasing protective factors such as access to mental and physical health care, access to safe and stable housing, increasing peer and community connections and identifying and utilizing coping strategies. In addition to connecting youth to services, this program also advocates for the accessibility of substance use/abuse treatment services specific to adolescents and young adults.
