  • What special needs of adolescents are addressed by adolescent services?

    Adolescents have unique physical and emotional needs due to underdeveloped neuro-cognitive and psychological aspects. In most cases, teen substance abuse is associated with co-occurring mental health issues like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depressive and anxiety disorders, physical/ sexual abuse and academic problems. Social relationships are also very important for adolescents. Therefore, adolescent services focus on these issues by facilitating positive involvement of parental figures and integrating academics and athletics in the treatment programs.

    The program also includes socialization, and gender-appropriate, cultural and developmental services. In addition, adolescent services offer comprehensive treatment and case management.

  • When should I enroll my child to an in-patient treatment program?

    Residential treatment program is offered to teens with:

    • Intoxication problems
    • Medical and psychiatric complications due to substance abuse
    • High-risk recovery environment (abused, homeless, close peers or family using drugs)
    • No response to short treatment
    • Juvenile Justice System case
  • What is the duration of in-patient treatment for adolescents?

    For residents who will only undergo detoxification, residency may last for several days only. But residents who are not responsive to treatment can stay from 45 days to one year. The same duration applies to youth offenders and residents with unstable family situations.
