Services Teen Substance Abuse
Support From Loved Ones
While it is imperative for a teen addicted to drugs or alcohol to submit themselves to addiction therapy, their family and closest friends are often needed for emotional support during times of anxiety and depression. This support group is a necessary component for the ongoing battle of staying off of drugs and alcohol, and often times our counselors will work with key support people as well as a teen struggling with addiction. Individual, as well as group substance abuse counseling sessions offer the guidance and support needed to deal with the temptations of drugs and alcohol, and our counselors work with affected teens on personality struggles that can trigger relapse.
While it is okay to opt for an outpatient clinic for counseling, living in a peaceful environment away from the temptations with regular physical check-ups along with counseling sessions are required for complete recovery. A rehabilitation facility where the patient is kept in close observation is considered to be one of the best forms of treatment where both physical as well as mental treatments go hand in hand. The wounds of the mind take a longer time to heal though and psychiatrists often recommend multiple counseling sessions even after the sufferer has healed physically.
