Substance Use and Harm Reduction with Youth

with Adina Hauser, MSW RSW

This talk will focus on the principles of harm reduction. We will address the issue of how to increase buy-in and engagement from youth and how to manage the gap between loved ones goals and a young persons goals for change. 

Adina will review in-depth strategies to communicate and support youth around their substance use in every stage of change. She will also look at what types of services are appropriate for youth given their readiness to make changes to their substance use.
