Substance use disorder among teens is a significant issue. With the rise in popularity of vaping, more teens are abusing marijuana and suffering the consequences. Also, as the opioid epidemic continues in the United States, pre-teens and teens are getting swept up in it. As a parent, you have a responsibility to know what pressures your child is facing. You need to know your options. Whether you are a parent or a teen, you can get the help you need through our treatment programs.
Our Teen Rehab Center
Teens face unique challenges. Similarly, they require unique therapies and treatment programs to meet their needs. Many teens experiment with drugs and alcohol but never become addicted. Thus, parents, adults, and friends need to be aware of the signs of potential substance use disorder.
Withdrawing from others or showing a lack of interest in hobbies or pastimes they once enjoyed can be a sign. Often, grades or the quality of work done in school will decline. Abusing substances nearly always affects performance in school or after-school activities. Adults and peers also should be on the lookout for changes in mood or mental state. Sometimes teens suffering from stress, anxiety, or depression will attempt to self-medicate to feel better. Unfortunately, doing so can lead to addiction as well as produce severe physical harm to a teen’s still-developing body and mind.
At our teen rehab center, we offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of every adolescent who arrives here. We provide mental health treatment, such as:
- Depression treatment
- Anxiety treatment
- Dual-diagnosis treatment
Offered alongside these, Destinations for Teens provides addiction treatment programs, including:
- Outpatient treatment
- Intensive outpatient treatment
- Partial hospitalization treatment
We design all of our treatment programs to meet the needs of our patients best. Since we understand adolescence is a difficult time, we approach every teen on their terms with our goal to get them healthy again.
Our Rehab Programs
For some individuals, it makes sense to be constantly supervised. But for patients who buck at being too controlled or overseen, we offer intensive outpatient treatment as well as partial hospitalization. Each of these programs gives your teen space to breathe and be free while still receiving the care they need.
At Destinations for Teens, we believe in collaboration and building a healing environment with our patients. Our teen rehab center offers the best way to succeed.
