2024 ACMT Symposium | Substance Use Disorder in Adolescents and Young Adults: Unique Challenges


April 11, 2024
Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC

Join the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) and the Maryland-DC Society of Addiction Medicine (MDDCSAM) on Thursday, April 11, 2024 for a Symposium on "Substance Use Disorder in Adolescents and Young Adults: Unique Challenges." 

Adolescents comprise approximately 15% of the population, and the number of adolescents who use non-prescribed substances is staggering, with about 2.08 million (8.33%) of 12- to 17-year-olds nationwide reporting use within the past month. Non-prescribed substance use increased 61% among 8th graders between 2016 and 2020. Unfortunately, treatment resources are limited and there is a lack of exposure to training physicians in the treatment of these patients. Additionally, there are unique challenges within this patient population, including the on-going brain development throughout puberty and adolescence that can impact decision making and substance use. Many who are exposed to illicit substances in youth progress to develop substance use disorders as adults.The increasing novelty of substances of abuse, the rise of fentanyl and marijuana use in the adolescent population, and the overall lack of adequate treatment for this group (including medication-assisted therapy) will increase the need to have informed providers to care for this population. 

This symposium gathers experts, researchers, and healthcare professionals to explore the unique challenges surrounding adolescent substance use, including biologic differences in adolescents, psycho-social motivational differences, and medication recommendations and therapeutic interventions for this patient population. This educational event is tailored for medical toxicologists, addiction medicine specialists, pediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and all healthcare providers dedicated to improving the lives of young individuals battling substance use disorders.

Learning Objective 1
Illustrate the epidemiology and trends of adolescent SUD in the United States.

Learning Objective 2
Identify the biological and psycho-social factors that differentiate adolescents from adults in the context of substance use.

Learning Objective 3
Explore multifaceted SUD treatment approaches and gain greater insight into how to tailor treatment plans to meet the unique needs of adolescent patients struggling with substance use.
