Michelle D. Lipinski, M.Ed., Principal, Northshore Recovery High School; Scott E. Lukas, Ph.D., McLean Hospital, Director, McLean Imaging Center, Director, Behavioral Psychopharmacology Research Laboratory, Harvard Medical School, Professor of Psychiatry


This conference focuses on current trends in underage substance use, the psychopharmacological implications, and the accompanying mental health components. Data show high rates of comorbid substance use disorders and anxiety disorders. These include, but are not limited to, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. In this population, there is also a high prevalence of disorders, such as depression, bipolar disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), psychotic illness, borderline personality disorder and antisocial personality disorders. Participants will learn interventions to assist youth who suffer from these, often comorbid, disorders.
