Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

When a young person develops a substance use problem, parents and other family members tend to cope by adopting unhealthy behaviors such as keeping secrets or finding scapegoats. Join counselor Kate Roselle to examine how to help the families you serve when adolescent substance use is in the picture, whether services are delivered in-person or virtually. Roselle will share important insights and practical strategies for working with families.


-Recognize the signs and symptoms of adolescent substance use disorders
-Describe the various family roles when addiction takes hold
-Identify healthy communication and boundary-setting strategies for families
-Understand some of the differences between supporting families in person versus virtually in today’s reality.
