Case Study 1: Screening
This case describes Ben, a 14-year-old male who is presenting to his primary care physician for routine care. His parents report that they are concerned that he may be using marijuana and note that his grades and relationship with them have both declined. The case demonstrates use of the CRAFFT screening tool to assess Ben’s risk of a substance use disorder and provide a brief intervention and, if appropriate, referral to treatment.
