Lakeview Health hosts discussion on substance abuse

Substance abuse in adolescents will be the topic of conversation for Lakeview Health’s June lecture series. They have enlisted James McManus, founder and owner of Family First Adolescent Services, to lead the discussion at the June 23 lecture. The lecture is open to the public and will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Lakeview Health’s conference center at 1900 Corporate Square Blvd.

McManus will be discussing the factors that contribute to adolescent substance abuse and will identify signs and symptoms. During the discussion, he will offer tools and resources that can be used at each phase of care and will help to identify anything missing that could help teenagers and their families as they work towards recovery.

“James has spent his career focusing on substance abuse disorders in teenagers and young adults, as well as mood disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders,” said Dr. Philip Hemphill, chief clinical officer at Lakeview Health. “He developed his organization with a focus on not only the patient, but the entire family. His lecture will help others understand the risks for adolescents and how to develop a treatment plan that will focus on working with both the patient and their family as they work towards addiction recovery.”

McManus earned his bachelor’s degree from Florida State University and his master’s degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University. He founded Family First Adolescent Services to help families stop being controlled by substance abuse disorders. The goal of his organization is to help build a road map to recovery that is based on compassion, boundaries and self-care.

Exploring the Adolescent Continuum of Care is part of Lakeview Health’s monthly lecture series. Each month, Lakeview Health hosts a speaker to discuss issues related to addiction and recovery. To register, visit
