Host Jeff Olivet speaks with Andy Matthews, a Project Amp mentor in Philadelphia. Project Amp, an initiative of the Center for Social Innovation, is a brief mentorship intervention developed in partnership with Young People in Recovery and funded by the Conrad N. Hilton foundation. Project Amp explores the role young adults in recovery can play in adolescent substance use prevention and early intervention. It builds on a model of screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment, or SBIRT. Project Amp recently tested the approach in communities across the country, including the PHMC clinic in Philadelphia. Andy Matthews served as a Project Amp mentor in that community.
