Abstract (Summary)

Adolescents with substance use issues encounter many challenges, including mental health problems, school dropout, criminal activity, physical health issues, gang involvement, motor vehicle accidents, domestic violence, drug overdose, and death. The purpose of this project was to create a faith-based community comprehensive service program for both adolescents and their families and write a grant that will provide the funding and launch the program for this population in East Los Angeles. The proposed program is composed of outreach, case management, psycho-educational groups, and spiritual/faith-based activities. The submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project. Social work implications are discussed.
