$2.7M grant expands psychiatry-based substance abuse disorder services for adolescents, caregivers

Indiana University School of Medicine faculty are expanding the school’s psychiatry-based substance use disorder services for adolescents and their caregivers through a five-year, $2.7 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Led by Zachary Adams, a psychologist and assistant professor of psychiatry at the IU School of Medicine, and Dr. Leslie Hulvershorn, associate professor of psychiatry and interim co-chair of school’s Department of Psychiatry, the grant will allow researchers and clinicians to better serve adolescents with mild to severe substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders, and their families, by leveraging the existing Adolescent Dual Diagnosis Program at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health and the Adolescent Addiction Access line within the Department of Psychiatry at the IU School of Medicine.
