Description

Designed to strengthen young clients' motivation and commitment to change, this outpatient program combines elements of cognitive-behavioural and motivational interviewing approaches. The program can be a first step for youth with substance use problems, fostering motivation for change before addressing more specialized or long-term needs.

First Contact includes personalized feedback on the extent and consequences of clients' substance use. It also features four sessions, to be delivered in either an individual or a group format, including a broad range of exercises.
