The Tioga County Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse is offering a teen intervene program for community members and professionals. The goal is to help adolescents that mildly or moderately use substances such as alcohol, tobacco or other drugs.

Officials say that motivational interviewing can bring out an issue in an child along with encouragement. The Executive Director of the program says that you should talk with your teens, know where they'll be, who they'll be with and what they'll be doing.

Executive Director of TCCASA Christine Speciale said, "It's extremely important to bring awareness to this issue and the community. All over there's problems with substance use and adolescents definitely are using and we are one agency and if we can spread the word out to the community then it's going to help us out greatly."
