1 Access to care for adolescents who need treatment for Alcohol, Drug, or Co Occurring Disorders. Directory of DCF Funded Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment Programs Florida Counties 2008 Executive Office of the Governor Office of Drug Control

2 Introduction The Directory of DCF Funded Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment Programs in Florida 2006 was developed to assist parents, families, professionals, and individuals in locating public substance abuse treatment services for Florida youth. Substance abuse is a serious health problem that can result in significant disruption in the lives of adolescents, their families, and the community. If left unchecked, substance abuse can progress into addiction and can lead to premature death. The good news is that early intervention and treatment have been proven to be effective in interrupting teen substance abuse. There is no known cure for substance abuse or addiction and although relapses are common in the recovery process a number of evidence based treatment practices have been shown to be effective in treating substance abuse and substance dependence. When parents, families, professionals, and adolescents are seeking treatment for substance abuse or substance dependence it can be challenging to determine if outpatient treatment is sufficient or if more intensive treatment is needed. When more intensive care is needed outside of the home, treatment choices may be limited and may not be available in all counties due to higher operational costs. Distance to treatment and cost for treatment can create challenges that influence treatment choices. This directory is intended to help citizens locate and access public adolescent substance abuse treatment programs in Florida. The directory also includes information about screening instruments, assessment instruments, and evidence based treatment that is geared towards treatment professionals and may not be easy to decipher. Any of the providers listed in this directory will be happy to answer your questions about the directory and the treatment services they provide. They should be able to assist you in identifying the most appropriate level of care based on the individual needs of the adolescent. If you need additional information, you may contact the Office of Drug Control at: (850) or visit the web site at You can also contact the Department of Children and Families Substance Abuse Program Office at: (850) or visit the web site at: ii

3 Definitions, Terms, and Abbreviations This is a partial list of some commonly used treatment related terms and abbreviations that may be found in the directory. Some of these terms, treatment models, and abbreviations may not be familiar to all readers. Many of the treatment models and practices that are utilized in treatment are supported by extensive research. Information about many of these models and practices can easily be located by conducting an internet search. There may be other terms or abbreviations that used that are unique to specific providers. Readers are encouraged to contact those providers directly if they have questions or need additional information. Adolescent Diagnostic Interview (ADI) The ADI is a widely used evidence based assessment instrument that is used to help determine the presence of substance abuse and underlying mental health conditions. Aftercare This is a service that is provided to adolescents and their families after a period of involvement in substance abuse treatment. This service is provided to assist teens and families to develop coping skills to address the many challenges associated with recovery from substance abuse and addiction. Aftercare services provide assistance to adolescents and their families to help address family, school, community, and legal problems that may have occurred as a result of substance abuse related behaviors. Aftercare services also help recovering adolescents overcome delays in social, emotional, educational, and spiritual development that may have occurred because of substance abuse. Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous (A.A./N.A.). A.A. and N.A. are self help fellowships that are also referred to as A.A. meetings. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous do not accept any outside financial support or sponsorship. Meetings are facilitated by other recovering participants and by treatment professionals or paid staff. Participation in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings is frequently encouraged and facilitated by many substance abuse treatment providers. American Society of Addiction Medicine Patient Placement Criteria, Editions 2 or 3 (ASAM PPC 2/3) The American Society of Addiction Medicine has developed specific criteria to help treatment professionals to make recommendations about the level of care or intensity of treatment that is needed. Levels of care in substance abuse treatment fall into broad categories that include outpatient programs, intensive outpatient programs, residential treatment program, detoxification programs, and medically supervised detoxification programs. Beck Depression Inventory The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI, BDI II), created by Dr. Aaron T. Beck, is a 21 question multiple choice self report inventory that is one of the most widely used instruments for measuring the severity of depression. Bio Psychosocial Assessment When an adolescent first enters treatment for a suspected substance abuse problem, the provider completes a comprehensive assessment in order to determine what problems need to be addressed and what services need to be provided. A bio psychosocial assessment includes a thorough exploration of the impact of substance abuse on the adolescents health, social, psychological, family, educational, and spiritual functioning. A bio psychosocial assessment also explores the role of health, genetics, trauma, school, culture, gender, or other factors and their potential impact on the adolescents substance abuse use or co occurring mental health problems. The assessment process also includes considers the adolescents strengths, commitment to change, legal status, and responses to any previous treatment that has been received. iii

4 Brief Strategic Family Therapy Brief Strategic Family Therapy is a family therapy model that has been supported by extensive research to be effective in treating teens with substance abuse and delinquency problems. Commission on of Rehabilitation Facilities () In addition to meeting licensing guidelines through the Department of Children and Families, many of Florida s treatment providers seek additional program certification through certifying organizations that include and JCAHO (Joint Commission on of Health Organizations). Certification provides additional assurances to the public that the provider is committed to maintaining high standards of care. Cannabis Youth Treatment This model is based on the Cannabis Youth Treatment Series developed by the Centers for Substance Abuse Treatment and is a promising practice. It includes components of other models that have been determined to be effective including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), and Multi Dimensional Family Therapy. Advances in marijuana growing techniques for marijuana have led to dramatic increases in the levels of the primary mood enhancing chemical that is contained in marijuana, THC (Tetra Hydra Cannabinol, Delta 9). Nearly three fourths of adolescents that seek substance treatment do so because of marijuana abuse or dependence. Chapter 65D 30 F.A.C (Florida Administrative Code) Rule 65D 30 (authorized through 397 F.S.) establishes program standards for Florida s substance abuse providers. All providers listed in this directory are currently licensed through the Department of Children and Families Substance Abuse Program Office. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) This is an evidence based treatment model that is frequently used in substance abuse and mental health treatment of adolescents. CBT is used to help the adolescent to manage thoughts that can lead to negative emotions that are triggers for using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs or other problem behaviors. Comprehensive Continuous Integrated Systems of Care (CCISC) This is an evidence based practice developed by Kenneth Minkoff, M.D., and Christie Cline, M.D. This model emphasizes the importance of treating substance abuse disorders and mental health disorders simultaneously when both disorders are present. Research indicates that a high percentage of adolescents that have substance abuse problems also have underlying mental health problems and vice versa. The term Co Occurring Disorders is used when substance abuse disorders and mental health conditions are both present at the same time. Most of Florida s adolescent providers are able to treat co occurring disorders within their own programs (cooccurring enhanced programs) or they will coordinate needed mental health care with a mental health specialty provider (co occurring capable programs). program should exclude an adolescent from substance abuse treatment strictly because of the existence of an underlying mental health disorder, such as depression or attention deficit disorder. Dynamic Integrated Treatment Model This in approach to treatment that is utilized by some Florida providers. This approach appears to have specific benefit for adolescents that have co occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM IV TR) The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the iv

5 United States. It also includes standard classifications for substance abuse and substance dependence disorders. Evidence Based Assessments Before specific treatment recommendations can be made to adolescents and their parents/guardians, providers first complete a thorough assessment to examine the impact of substance abuse in every areas of the adolescents life. Many of Florida s treatment providers utilize evidence based assessment instruments that have been tested and validated nationally through rigorous research. Evidence Based Practices Although treatment for addiction has been proven to be effective, some treatment practices are more effective than others. Each provider in this directory has listed the treatment practices that they utilize that are supported by research or promoted through professional publications. Extensive information about most of these treatment approaches can often be located by conducting an internet search. Information can also be obtained about specific practices by contacting the provider directly. Family Participation in Treatment Although Florida law allows adolescents to seek treatment without parental consent, involvement by parents and caregivers is important for a good treatment outcome. Some programs require family/parental participation. Others may strongly encourage family/parental involvement. Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) The Florida Department of Children and Families is the regulatory agency for substance abuse treatment providers in Florida. Substance abuse treatment providers are required to be licensed through DCF unless exempt by Florida Statute. Global Appraisal of Individual Needs (GAIN) The GAIN is one the most widely utilized evidence based assessment instruments in the adolescent substance abuse treatment field in the United States. It is widely utilized by Florida s adolescent substance abuse treatment providers. Levels of Care This directory contains references to different levels of treatment such as, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient. In the earlier stages of abuse, adolescents can usually be treated in outpatient settings. Adolescents that have severe substance abuse involvement and/or other complex behavioral or serious mental health issues may require more a more intensive level of care. A thorough assessment is necessary to help determine the most appropriate level of care. Massachusetts Adolescent Youth Screening Instrument, Second Edition (MAYSI II) This is a nationally recognized screening instrument that is used to screen out suspected substance abuse, mental health problems, and potential risk for self harm. Screening instruments are used to help determine if a more complete and thorough bio psychosocial assessment is indicated to rule out the presence of substance abuse or mental health concerns. Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) This is an evidence based treatment approach that has been proven to be effective in helping substance abusers to develop increased self awareness about their treatment needs and increased investment to change. Positive Achievement Change Tool (PACT) This is a screening and assessment instrument that is utilized by the Department of Juvenile Justice programs to help identify substance abuse and mental health treatment needs in youth. v

6 SAMH 1/SAMH 2 (Substance Abuse Mental Health Screening Instrument 1 & 2) The SAMH 1 and SAMH 2 are screening instruments that some Florida providers utilize to screen for potential substance abuse and mental health disorders in adolescents. Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI A2) The Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory is a screening questionnaire that is helpful in identifying substance abuse and substance dependence in adolescents. Twelve Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF) This is a brief, structured, and manual driven approach to facilitating early recovery from alcohol abuse, alcoholism, and other drug abuse and addiction problems. The intervention is based on the behavioral, spiritual, and cognitive principles of 12 step fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (). TSF is listed in the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices. vi
