An addiction is a complicated disease that can have profound negative consequences on every part of a teenager’s life, including their education, social life, family relationships and their future. Addiction affects a developing adolescent physically, mentally and emotionally — professional treatment gives them a real shot at recovery.
Teens with mental health disorders (like depression, anxiety, and ADHD) often try to cope with their problems by turning to drugs and alcohol. In other cases, drug abuse and addiction can trigger these disorders. Co-occurring mental disorders amplify the dangers of addiction, in which case a more specialized form of treatment may be necessary.
We connect you to the treatment program that caters to your child’s unique needs. Inpatient and outpatient programs are available to help a teen in the environment that works best for their recovery. In cases of co-occurring mental and substance use disorders, there are integrated treatment facilities equipped to handle the extra care and time it takes to address both issues at once.
