Youth and young adults in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs) often do not have access to recovery support services in their communities. Only 1 in 7 young adults who need treatment for SUDs receive it, and many who do receive treatment return to environments and social networks that put them at risk of using. Youth and young adults, in particular, are more likely to have a SUD than any other age group, making youth-specific recovery support services crucial.
Behavioral health providers can strengthen their impact by informing clients about the array of recovery support services available and helping them achieve life in sustained recovery.
Join Tim Rabolt, Project Coordinator at Altarum, on Thursday, March 8, from 1-2 p.m. ET, for the webinar Addiction Recovery Services: Supporting Youth and Young Adults. Tim will explore how behavioral health providers can engage youth in recovery support services and examine the impact that recovery support services have on health outcomes of youth, helping providers ensure that they have the tools and resources to support youth in recovery.
