#7145 Because the adolescent brain is not fully developed, young people are extremely vulnerable to drug and alcohol addiction. This program combines informative case studies with analysis of two treatments found to be effective with child and teen patients.
Viewers will learn about multi-systemic therapy – which engages not only the addict but his or her community, family, and environment – and structured, long-term residential therapy.
The film follows a youthful addict through each approach. In addition, it explores co-occurring disorders such as anxiety or depression, which are typically present with adolescent addicts. Some content may be objectionable.
