Teen Intervene

Teen Intervene is a time-efficient, evidence-based program for teenagers (ages 12 to 19) suspected of having mild to moderate problems with alcohol or substance abuse. Usually recommended as a result of an SAP assessment, Teen Intervene involves two to three individual sessions designed to educate teens on their current behaviors and motivate them to pursue positive change.

The Teen Intervene program integrates stages of change theory, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy to help teens reduce—and ultimately eliminate—chemical use. Teen Intervene teaches teenagers how to:

  • Understand reasons for alcohol or drug involvement
  • Learn new skills that promote healthier behaviors
  • Increase willingness to change behavior related to alcohol or other drug use
  • Take responsibility for self-change
At Caron, we can help you build a treatment program that meets your needs.
