Adolescent substance abuse has long been seen as difficult to diagnose and very challenging to treat. The SAT-ED project brings to two Maine agencies an evidence based assessment tool and treatment model used across the country. Participants learned more about these comprehensive and very effective tools, how the initial implementation is going, and how they might become involved as the project expands.
