This program, with the short title Youth and Family TREE, provides funding to enhance and expand comprehensive treatment, early intervention, and recovery support services for adolescents (ages 12-18), transitional aged youth (ages 16-25), and their families/primary caregivers with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.

Required activities include:

  • Provide comprehensive, family-centered, trauma-informed, coordinated, and integrated outpatient system of care, including early intervention and recovery support services
  • Screen clients and their family members/primary caregivers, who are included in treatment planning, for alcohol misuse and illicit drug use, including marijuana, opioids, stimulants, inhalants, and benzodiazepines
  • Provide evidence-based treatment for any individual assessed to meet the criteria for substance use disorder and provide brief counseling interventions for people engaged in risky or hazardous drinking
  • Screen all clients and their family members/primary caregivers for tobacco use and provide tobacco use counseling and interventions as part of a standard of practice
  • Provide interventions, including education and brief counseling, to prevent school-aged children from initiating tobacco use
  • Increase access to comprehensive treatment services to a larger number of unduplicated youth clients than the applicant organization currently serves
  • Serve a minimum of 50 youth in year 1 of the grant and 100 youth in each subsequent year
  • Provide education and messaging on making healthy choices that includes not using any substances
