Historically, substance use and mental health disorder interventions for adolescents were derived from adult models, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and 12-step programs, which are rooted in traditional talk therapy. Young people may struggle to benefit from treatments using these models because they may not be developmentally appropriate. A need exists for developmentally attuned interventions that can engage children and adolescents. This article briefly reviews the process of bridging yoga therapy and behavioral health service delivery for adolescents served by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH).
