5 Benefits of an Adolescent Treatment Program

At Red Oak Recovery®, we understand adolescents’ unique challenges in overcoming substance abuse issues. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, individuals who begin using drugs and alcohol in their early teens are most likely to develop a substance abuse problem later in life. And substance use disorders can also affect how adolescents’ brains develop. However, through a professional adolescent treatment program, your teen can break free from the cycle of addiction and live a happy, healthy life free from drugs and alcohol.

Our adolescent treatment program offers outpatient care for patients struggling with addiction. Adolescent patients in our care receive the extra resources and accountability they need during early recovery. Our team is trained in the best practices for helping teens and is ready to help them overcome their unique struggles.

Benefits of an Adolescent Treatment Program

Addiction treatment cannot be one-size-fits-all. Because every individual struggling with substance abuse is unique, they should receive personalized care for their needs. Adolescents face specific challenges with substance abuse. For instance, adolescents are more likely to binge drink than adults, are less likely to experience withdrawal symptoms, and are more likely to hide their substance abuse from others. A high-quality adolescent rehab center should consider these factors when administering treatment. While teens have a harder time than adults admitting they need help, a treatment center can help them learn how to handle stress without turning to drugs or alcohol. Other benefits of an adolescent treatment program include:

  1. Healthy coping skills to set your adolescent up for lifelong success
  2. Targeted therapies for teens’ unique needs
  3. Support of peers who have experienced similar struggles
  4. Family therapy and support groups to heal damaged relationships
  5. Care for co-occurring mental health disorders

At Red Oak Recovery®, our goal is to help each patient in our care find lasting recovery from the damages of addiction.

What Makes Red Oak Recovery® Stand Out

Our rehab center uses evidence-based treatment methods to help teens overcome addiction. The most effective treatments for adolescents use some form of behavioral therapy and also address co-occurring mental health disorders. Young people will find experienced staff in a comfortable, welcoming setting. Our addiction specialists are ready to help your teen get on the road to lasting recovery.

Our facility engages every individual in an intense, individualized therapy plan delivered in group and individual settings. The skills your teen learns in treatment will be useful in dealing with the stress of early recovery. In our adolescent treatment program, your teen will meet once or twice weekly for group, individual, or family therapy. Group therapy is an important part of the recovery process. The group members offer their insights and experiences to approach and solve problems from different angles.

We believe families can recover as well as individuals. We offer support services, including family support groups and family therapy sessions. Our staff will help your family understand addiction and help you create healthy boundaries.

Our programs treat addiction’s mental, physical, and spiritual sides. Your teen’s comprehensive therapy plan focuses on the mental and spiritual aspects, but we also address their physical needs. Necessary medications will be delivered on-site, and every patient can access psychiatric and primary care when needed.
