Drawing on research and practice experience from both a social work and adolescent medicine perspective, this webinar will present research, best practices and developmental considerations when working with adolescent young women whose lives may interact with the juvenile justice system or courts. The presentation will start with research contrasting current adolescent substance use trends post-COVID with trends in a recent sample of young adolescent women who are justice involved, while highlighting the unique needs of these youth based on prior research. An adolescent medicine perspective will then be provided concerning the risks of pregnancy and HIV/STI and best practices and considerations with this population. Current gender-responsive interventions for this population will be described, with a specific focus on the development and testing of the CHOICES-TEEN intervention, a bundled risk reduction Telehealth intervention designed to reduce the risks of substance-exposed pregnancy (alcohol and marijuana) and HIV/STI.

There are not enough treatment providers to meet the needs of our patients with OUD. Telemedicine can increase access to patients who require ongoing substance use disorder treatment. However, there are numerous regulatory, logistical and other clinical questions, which are also rapidly changing, around implementing telemedicine delivery of medication treatment for OUD (tele-MOUD). In this presentation, we will: present evidence on tele-MOUD but focus most of the discussion on clinical considerations in using implementing telemedicine to deliver quality buprenorphine treatment.
