As children progress into their teenage years, parents may begin giving them more freedom. However, this freedom can induce a lot of stress for parents, especially if your teenager is struggling with drug or alcohol use. If your teen has begun to use substances, it’s time to get help at an adolescent treatment program, such as Foothills. At our idyllic, uplifting campus, we offer holistic, integrated care that focuses on your child’s needs.

What Makes Our Adolescent Treatment Program Different?
At all of our facilities, we use the most up-to-date, evidence-based rehabilitation methods. Our goal is to provide trauma-focused care to boys and their families in order to make sure that their recovery is successful.
At our adolescent treatment program, we work with teens between the ages of 14 to 17 who struggle with addiction, trauma, mental health, and other complications. We know that your teen faces unique challenges. The world has become challenging to navigate, whether you’re an adult or a teen. Teens now face the pressure to do well in school in order to get into a good college, social hurdles, and fears for their safety at school. We understand those concerns. Therefore, instead of approaching treatment as if your teen were an adult, we use gender-specific, age-appropriate programs to help them live their best life.
According to developmental psychologists, adolescents are in a stage of life called identity vs. role confusion. A teen who successfully completes this stage of life gains a strong identity. In other words, they know themselves amid the pressure and chaos of the world. This identity is critical to making healthy life choices.
Without understanding themselves, a person is facing role confusion. This stage places themselves at risk for a variety of factors, including:
- Peer pressure
- Substance use
- Emotional and behavioral instability
In other words, our teens are trying to figure out who they are. Unfortunately, the choices they’re making can affect their lives for years to come. As a result, they need guidance and care to help them figure out who they want to be. Through our adolescent treatment program, we can help them discover who they want to be. This program can also give them a foundation for their identity.
We address various underlying factors that contribute to role confusion, such as:
- Substance use
- School avoidance
- Behavioral issues
We help your teen understand what they want their values to be. We also help you as a parent to know how to lead your child with parenting based on your values. Our therapeutic methods can empower your teen to define, explore, and appreciate who they are becoming.
