Complexities treating addicted B.C. youth prompt new guidelines
VANCOUVER - New guidelines aimed at improving treatment for opioid-addicted young people have been released by the British Columbia Centre on Substance Use. A news release from the centre says treatment for youth must be developmentally and culturally appropriate and, while confidential, should also include family involvement when possible. The guidelines are aimed at being as flexible, accessible and user friendly as possible, while offering all available drug and counselling options.
