A bold new approach to treating adolescent substance abuse in Wisconsin
We want the very best for Wisconsin teenagers
who struggle with substance abuse problems—the best ways of identifying
and screening those in trouble with drugs,
the best ways of supporting them and
their families and, most of all, the best
to help them recover.
- Identify existing gaps and subsequent models/solutions
to provide seamless services for adolescents with mental health and
substance abuse issues.
- Creating linkages between state, local, and
parent organizations facilitating positive outcomes for adolescents.
- Identify and support statewide integration
of best practices models for screening, assessment and treatment of
adolescents with substance abuse/co-occurring disorders.
- Develop a first comprehensive statewide directory
of existing agencies serving adolescents and an information system.
- Establish a statewide family network to assist
families in coping and obtaining appropriate treatment for their adolescent
who may be suffering from a mental health and/or substance abuse issue.
