Reclaiming Futures To Implement New Approach to Substance Use and Mental Health Treatment for At-Risk Youth

October 1, 2014

Reclaiming Futures Logo: Communities helping teens overcome     drugs, alcohol and crimeThe Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has awarded Reclaiming Futures a $2 million grant to pilot a substance abuse and mental health treatment approach for at-risk youth based on the Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) adult model. Reclaiming Futures will implement SBIRT at three existing sites and add two new sites that will employ this treatment approach. Each pilot site will serve at least 100 youth over three years and will evaluate the effectiveness of SBIRT among adolescents. In October, Reclaiming Futures will seek proposals from existing sites to implement the SBIRT component.
