Teen Intervene

Do you suspect your teen is using alcohol or other drugs? 


Possible signs of substance use can be both physical and behavioral and may include withdrawal from

normal activities, irritability, unusual requests for money, unexplained changes in friends, excessive sleeping, strong defiance toward

rules and regulations, and significant high and lows in his or her energy level. 




Teen Intervene is an evidenced-based program for teenagers ages twelve to nineteen years old who are:

  • Exhibiting mild or moderate problems associated with alcohol or other drug use
  • Experiencing legal consequences
  • Experiencing problems at school
  • Arguing with family or friends

Teen Intervene is not intended for those teens who have a substance use disorder or suffer from

an untreated psychiatric disorder.




Teen Intervene is administered in three one-hour sessions.


The first two sessions are individual dialogue with the adolescent.


Session three is an individual session with the parent/guardian of the teenager. This session will include a brief wrap-up conversation with both the parent and the adolescent.




  • To motivate the teen to change and improve their self-efficiency skills
  • Learn about the harmful effects of substance use/abuse
  • Learn communication and coping skills
  • Establish and reinforce support systems
