Vermont Youth Treatment Enhancement Program masthead

Want to enhance your organization’s capacity to treat youth?

You are invited!
The Vermont Department of Health’s Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs (ADAP)’s Youth Treatment Enhancement Program (YTEP) is pleased to announce the initiation of a multi-step workforce development project to help substance abuse and mental health clinicians:

  • More fully grasp the impact of substance abuse on adolescents
  • Learn about the core concepts of effective and engaging treatment delivery strategies for this population, and
  • Integrate some of these treatment delivery strategies into their delivery of treatment services to this population.

May we have your input?

The Vermont Department of Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs (ADAP) has developed two online surveys that we would greatly appreciate you completing, if appropriate.

Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment Needs Assessment

ADAP is working to improve the access to and quality of adolescent substance abuse assessment and treatment services in Vermont. We need your input on the specific needs and concerns of your community.

Your responses to this survey will be anonymous (unless you choose to give us your name and contact information). The information gained from this Needs Assessment may be used to inform Community Forums on adolescent substance abuse treatment services in your community. It will also be used to inform the work of the Vermont Youth Treatment Enhancement Program, a four-year SAMHSA grant focused on increasing the access to and quality of adolescent substance abuse assessment and treatment services in Vermont.

This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to finish and can be accessed by clicking the “Take survey” button or by going to http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2446652/1818253320f0

Substance Abuse Treatment Provider List

Are you interested in having your name on a list of Vermont Substance Abuse Treatment Providers? The Vermont Department of Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs is developing a substance abuse treatment provider list comprised of clinicians in private practice who provide substance abuse and co-occurring mental health treatment. Once completed, this list will be distributed to referral sources such as DCF, schools, medical offices, Court Diversion, families and mental health and substance abuse provider agencies.

We think this list will be a valuable community resource by helping to link consumers to services.

Supporting substance abuse treatment providers to strengthen services for adolescents and young adults

The Vermont Youth Treatment Enhancement Program seeks to improve treatment for adolescents (age 12-17) and transitional-aged youth (age 18-24) through training in two evidence-based programs. Using client-centered, developmentally matched treatment models, clinicians will gain improved skills in working with teens and young adults to address problems related to substance abuse.
