Near & Far Video, Introduced by Richard Kemp: The Road to Recovery 2014: Young Adults in Recovery: Meeting the Needs of the “Millennial Generation” 04/10/2014

Ivette Torres, Associate Director for Consumer Affairs, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Young adults increasingly are joining the ranks of people in recovery. The needs of young adults (ages 18–25), an age group sometimes called “the Millennial Generation,” differ from the needs of older and younger generational groups. This show will focus on the particular needs and preferences of young adults as they engage in treatment for mental and substance use disorders and follow their journey of recovery. Effective strategies for preventing young adults from initiating substance use, escalating their substance use, or developing mental disorders will also be explored. Young adults have been raised in an era in which the Internet provides vast quantities of information with rapid access to this information facilitated by mobile technologies. Also, these lifestyle factors—which have strong implications for prevention strategies, treatment approaches, and recovery systems for this age group—will be examined.
