New Guide Helps Identify at-risk Kids, 9-18.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has just released a guide for health care professionals to help identify children and teenagers age 9 to 18 who are at risk for alcohol-related problems, provide brief counseling, and refer them to treatment resources if that is indicated.

While aimed at professionals, the guide contains useful information for non-professionals and parents as well.

The evidence-based guide, Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention for Youth: A Practitioner’s Guide, includes a two-question risk assessment as well as links to resources for motivational interviewing. NIAAA developed the guide and supporting pocket guide in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics.
