Teen Drug Treatment Options

When choosing a treatment facility for your teenager, a parents mind is going in so many different directions.  There are so many questions as to inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, counseling, etc...   Many parents are pulled in so many different directions that they often times make no choice and the child's addiction continues to get worse.  There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing what treatment center is best for the teen who is addicted. 

  • What drugs or alcohol is being used?
  • The frequency of the child's use?
  • How old is the child?
  • Does the child need to be detoxed medically?
  • How long has the child been using?
  • What is the family situation at home?
These are all questions that need to be answered in order to place a teenager in a facility that handles all of the issues.  If the issues are not dealt with during treatment, the chance at sobriety is very slim. 

Clearbrook Lodge has been treating teenage chemical dependency since 1972.  Our program is focused on the patient in and what happens after treatment.  Many parents ask about school.  Our program is designed to treat the addiction, while the child keeps up in his or her schooling.  The first step in treating teenage drug addiction is to detox in a authorized full medical detox.  After the detox phase the teen is entered into a 28 day treatment program with the twelve steps of AA or NA as the basis to long term sobriety.  Individual and group therapy are practiced at Clearbrook.  We also have an extended care program for adolescents should they need it.

Please call for help with your teenager who is suffering from addiction.  Visit our website on teenage drug treatment here..  Please click below for a video of our facility and what to expect.

There are plenty of Substance abuse treatment Centers out there, and while most are professionally-run and supervised, that’s not always the case. Substance abuse treatment done the wrong way, just doesn’t work — and improper detox procedures can be life-threatening.
