Abstract

Over the past decade, methamphetamine use as reported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has increased by 250% nationally and 841 % among adolescents admitted to treatment in the state of Iowa (SAMHSA, 2003). The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of treatment modalities and models which are in use within substance abuse settings and to provide recommendations for professional counselors. With the rising number of methamphetamine using adolescents in Iowa, it is important that effective treatment for abuse of this substance be developed. Substance abuse, community mental health and school counselors each will play a critical role in placing particular focus on awareness, education, screening, and treating methamphetamine use among Iowa adolescents.
