Adolescent Withdrawal Guidelines

Adolescence, as described by Ingersoll (1989), is a, “period of personal development during which a young person must establish a personal sense of individual identity and feelings of self worth which include an alteration of his or her body image, adaptation to more mature intellectual abilities, adjustments to society’s demands for behavioral maturity, internalising a personal value system and preparing for adult roles.”

These detailed Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Withdrawal Guidelines have been developed as a resource to support clinicians who are working with adolescents seeking to address their substance use.
