Teen Intervene

Need to take a closer look at a teen's alcohol or other drug use?

A three-session, individualized brief intervention program

Designed specifically for youth who are experiencing mild to moderate problems associated with alcohol or other drug use, Hazelden's Teen Intervene Program provides education, support, and guidance for teens and their parents.Designed specifically for youth who are experiencing mild to moderateproblems associated with alcohol or other drug use, Hazelden's Teen Intervene Program provides education, support, and guidance for teens and their parents. Through this brief intervention model of care, youth work one-to-one with a Hazelden counselor in identifying and changing their choices and behaviors.

Helps young people learn to make healthier choices

Maybe they've been caught drinking or smoking marijuana. Maybe they are beginning to experience problems at school or home as a result of their alcohol or other drug use. They aren't addicted, but some type of intervention is needed. Hazelden's researchbased Teen Intervene Program helps youth identify the reasons they have chosen to use alcohol or other drugs, examine the effects of substance abuse in their lives, and learn to make healthier choices.

Because Teen Intervene is designed to help youth who have experienced mild to moderate substance abuse, an assessment must first be completed to rule out a chemical dependency diagnosis. This assessment may be completed by Hazelden or another program. If the assessment is completed by a program other than Hazelden, a 60-minute introductory session with a Hazelden counselor is held to discuss program goals and expectations.

Providing a personalized approach

Each young person has his or her own reasons for using alcohol or other drugs and individual teens differ greatly in terms of their willingness to change. By focusing on individual goals and personalized feedback, Teen Intervene effectively addresses each young person's specific needs. Based on the brief intervention model, Teen Intervene consists of three 90-minute sessions with a Hazelden counselor.
