Teenage drug abuse has been one of America’s major problems since the 1960′s. Each year thousands of American teenagers (and teenagers in other developed countries, also) start experimenting with mind-altering drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and barbiturates. Many of them soon die from overdosing on these drugs. Of those that survive, there are many who make the right choice to get treatment for their problem and return to normal lives with family, friends, and school.
Effective Treatment for Teens
Residential rehab is one of the most effective treatments. Under such a program, addicts live for a certain amount of time in a facility. There, they live in a controlled environment, away from the settings in which they first began to use drugs so they can recover easily. They are kept apart from the pressures of school and other problems that often result in a retreat into drugs. Recovering addicts also learn about drug addiction as well as new ways of coping with life’s problems without drugs present.

Our trained professionals work with clients to get to the root of their addiction. Clients also attend meetings in which each person talks about his or her drug habit, how it began, and how they are trying to get over it. We also provide recreation to make the recovery process more pleasant. Our treatment center also provides updates for the parents of clients visit to see what progress their children are making.
