Building Skill in Family Treatment of Adolescents and Emerging Adults

Information from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) indicates that meaningful family participation in the treatment process is an effective way to improve both retention in treatment and treatment outcomes for persons with substance use disorders.

 The Illinois Family Resource Center assists providers to increase their awareness of the importance of family treatment, provides training to professionals in order to enhance their skills in family treatment, and to increase the effectiveness of family treatment services.

“Building Skills in Family Treatment of Adolescents and Emerging Adults” is a two hour in-service that can be provided onsite at your agency at no cost. Two CEU’s have been approved for ICB certified counselors as well as LSW, LCSW, LPC and LCPC licensure.
