Hi xolly,

Thanks for using JustAsk!

I think the two terms are basically interchangeable. Many dictionaries define an adolescent as a teenager, and vice versa. In other words, a teenager is defined as an adolescent between the onset of puberty and maturity, while an adolescent is a person in his or her teen years.

Hope this helps!
