Evidence-based Screenings and Assessments for Substance Use Disorders

Fri, Feb 26, 2021 - 12:00 PM - 02:00 PM

Stevi Harper, LPC, LADC with Sheelagh Tallman, RN


Substance use has been labeled a public health problem of epidemic proportion by the National Center on Addiction and Drug Abuse. Substance use concerns touch all populations treated at Parkside, and most significantly, the adolescents and adults. Not only does substance use during adolescence increase risk for adverse outcomes during adolescence (e.g., injury and/or illness associated with risky behaviors), substance use prior to age 18 greatly increases risk for substance use disorders as adults. Some 90% of American adults with a substance use disorder started using addictive substances prior to age 18. Rates of co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders range from 50% to 71% in adolescents. This workshop will introduce evidence-based tools available to clinicians at Parkside and examine best use of these in clinical practice.

Learning Objectives.  Participants will be able to:

  • Workshop participants will be familiar with several evidence-based tools available at Parkside and be competent to utilize these with adolescent and adult populations, with a focus on identification of at-risk individuals and the identification and management of withdrawal symptoms.
  • Participants will improve their knowledge of available screening and treatment resources.
  • Participants will examine best practice as regards use of these screening and assessment tools and the related required documentation.
