Description: Children and teens with substance abuse problems desperately need treatment tailored to their age group, as recent studies on adolescent brain development have underscored. In the past few years, research has been conducted on how to treat this age group, and evidence-based treatment practices have been recommended. Yet few practitioners have been in a position to fully implement these innovations into their current practices. This report will explain how the treatment professionals known as the Reclaiming Futures Treatment Fellowship developed strategies for individual treatment providers and provider agencies to collaborate with others and integrate evidence-based practices that change lives. It is, in essence, a call from treatment providers to treatment providers about why and how to convene, ways to engage, and strategies to sustain the treatment community based on the Reclaiming Futures model.
