Teen Intervene

Teen Intervene third edition provides customers with an easily administered,
low-cost SBIRT program that helps teens self-identify a substance use disorder,
provides a brief plan for intervention, and guides the referral to treatment.

By engaging both the teen and the parents in this three or four-session model,
Teen Intervene is a unique comprehensive program created specifically to drive
adolescent engagement and produce positive outcomes.

Teen Intervene Works

"Our school district adopted Teen Intervene as an early intervention program for [secondary] students with drug and alcohol-related school discipline issues. In the first year, 100 percent of the students who participated in Teen Intervene had zero repeat drug or alcohol infractions"

Jen McNeil

Davis Joint Unified School District, CA

"Teen Intervene presents a straightforward program that we use to help many identify a greater understanding of their use and consequences. The vast information is educational for teens, parents, or professionals. It builds to a solution-focused quest that compels the teen to be his or her own change agent."
