Drug abuse among teens is a growing problem. Treatment for teens varies somewhat as the teenage brain is different from a fully matured adult brain. Treating drug abuse among teenagers requires a somewhat different approach that requires personnel trained in treating clients in that age group.

Treatment For Drug Abuse Among Teens

Drug Abuse Among TeensOne difference in treating drug abuse among teens rather than adults is that their parents are usually the ones who bring them for treatment. Occasionally, the teen ordered to drug treatment by courts is the child that has had run-ins with law enforcement, yet is under the age of 21. Generally speaking, this means the client is not there voluntarily.

Treating a teenage client has its challenges. Breaking through their wall of anger and helplessness is something in which our personnel is exceptionally trained. Understanding the physiology of addiction and its effect on the teenage brain and behavior is something that is constantly evolving. All of our personnel are required to attend continuing education programs to keep up with all new knowledge in the treatment of drug abuse in teenagers.

Focusing on situations that give teenagers a sense of self-worth is one aspect of treating the teen drug epidemic. We urge and encourage teens to become community minded, rather than self-involved. Encouraging teamwork and common goals is another way we promote healthy relationships in the community, and mostly in themselves. We encourage teens to achieve a satisfying goal without drugs, and when they realize they can achieve those accomplishments, it is a step forward.
