Teen Intervene

Program Overview
Teen Intervene is an early intervention program targeting 12 to 19-year-olds who display the early stages of alcohol or drug use problems (e.g., using or possessing drugs during school) but do not use these substances daily or demonstrate substance dependence. Integrating stages of change theory, motivational enhancement, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, this intervention aims to help teens reduce and ultimately eliminate their alcohol and other drug use.

The Teen Intervene model integrates a variety of techniques to establish behavior change goals with the adolescent. Teen-Intervene is designed to help the client:

  • Learn new skills that promote healthier behaviors
  • Take responsibility for self-change
  • Understand the treatment approach
  • Use the treatment session(s) effectively

Teen Intervene has been approved as a SAMHSA Evidence Based Model Program.
