Help for Addicted Teens
Teens and drug abuse have been a problem in the U.S. since the 60s. One that has only gotten worse with time. However, the number of kids going off to a teen drug rehab has also been steadily increasing, so at least they’re seeking help in many instances.
In fact, there are not only more teen specific treatment centers, there are treatment schools for teens – schools that addicted teens can attend where they get treatment along with their curriculum. There are also treatment camps for teens, where they get their addiction treatment in the wilderness. The camps today are not like the hard core wilderness, or “boot” camps of the 80s, they are less stringent and more focused on educating teen addicts as well as restoring self-confidence and health.
There are many options available with programs that are specific to boys or girls, or coed. There are also Christian programs, 12-step oriented programs, more medically based, or science based, evidence based, etc. Just as there are for adults, some of these are more luxurious, some more Spartan and focused on building responsible young people. Also, the family plays a huge role in treatment for teens and any good program will include family therapy, as well.
Finding Drug Rehab for Teens
Since there are fewer options available it is a little easier, actually, to find an appropriate teen drug rehab center, depending on the circumstances. There may be extenuating circumstances involved.
For example, girls may have an addiction plus an eating disorder. Or, a teen may have some other psychologically based disorder that is causing the addictive behavior. In other words he, or she, may be self-medicating.
The good news is, because it’s a teen, it means the addictive behavior can’t have been going on for too long, unlike some addicts who have been doing heroin for ten or twenty years. Teens are also easier to work with in many cases. But finding the right treatment program is imperative to success.
