Teens and adolescents are by no means immune from addiction and, in fact, young adults addicted to alcohol or drugs are more likely to drop out of school, commit criminal acts, suffer self-image issues, alienate themselves from peers, and experience devastating debt.
Problems like substance use, depression, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, and failure to launch can impact brain development in adolescents, disrupting social, emotional, and intellectual functioning.
The statistics are quite staggering when it comes to adolescent drug and alcohol abuse. If you or someone you love is suffering from addiction, it’s essential that you get help; don’t wait.
For adolescents, the path to recovery can be very different than an adult. Young adults with substance use disorders or mental health problems often seem at their worst and may engage in the following:
That’s why centers in Christian Rehab Network offer a faith-based rehab for adolescents (defined as ages 13 to 17). Programs at these vetted facilities are designed to address the specific needs of adolescents in a safe, supportive environment, surrounded by other teenagers or young adults battling addition.
They offer group and individual therapy, Bible study, pastoral care, and recreational recovery activities that give adolescents age-appropriate strategies for coping with issues like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, substance use disorders, and social difficulties. Their scripture-based adolescent addiction treatment helps you connect with God as you find your way back from substance abuse and/or a co-occurring mental issue. Family involvement is a core part of addiction treatment for adolescents as well. To this end, facilities in the network also have Christian-based family therapy services to help everyone heal.
At Christian Rehab Network, we partner with faith-based programs including medical detox, outpatient and residential rehab, and sober living communities to offer adolescents a full continuum of care. To inquire about placement for adolescent drug rehabilitation, call 877-310-9545 today.
