Youth Substance Use/SBIRT

The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry states that the use and abuse of drugs and alcohol by teens is very common and can have serious consequences. Recurrent adolescent substance use contributes to personal distress, poor school performance, short and long term health problems, relationship difficulties, and involvement in antisocial activities.

The resources on this page are to assist the medical providers in screening their pediatric patients for substance use.  There are also resources for parents/caregivers and youth to better understand the consequences of substance use.
