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.

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.
