Teen Intervene and Check & Connect: Supportive Early Intervention Alternatives that Help Youth Get Back on Track

Elevate’s youth intervention program, Elevate “U,” targets youth (ages 12 – 17) early in their trajectory of substance use and school disconnection, and gets them back-on-track toward reaching their full potential.

This presentation will focus on the Elevate “U” model, where Elevate’s professional staff provide  evidence-based early intervention support in both individual and group settings.
