If you are considering teen treatment centers, you may wonder what benefits they have over traditional substance abuse treatment programs. At Foothills at Red Oak Recovery’s adolescent treatment center, we focus exclusively on assisting young boys with mental health and substance use disorders. There are many benefits to enrolling your son in an adolescent-specific rehab in North Carolina. To learn about these advantages, please contact our team at 866.300.5275.
Benefits of Adolescent Treatment Centers
Our teen drug rehab program focuses on problems specific to teenage boys. It has many features not found in adult treatment centers. This program is a good fit for parents who want a safe, structured environment with age-appropriate activities that help our clients develop interests outside of alcohol or drugs.
We recommend a residential program that gives your son the best chance for long-term recovery. However, residential recovery programs typically last 30 days or longer. The academics program at Foothills at Red Oak Recovery allows your son to keep up with schoolwork while working through a recovery program.
After completing a medical detox program, young boys and teens can benefit from the programs available at our teen substance abuse treatment program. Our clients learn mechanisms to help them cope with cravings and avoid returning to drug and alcohol abuse. Additionally, we teach our clients how to care for their bodies with proper nutrition, plenty of exercise, and healthy lifestyle habits.
Most importantly, adolescent treatment centers provide a safe environment exclusive to boys. This community of peers can become a strong support system for those in recovery and beyond.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Dual diagnosis addresses co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. Teenagers who have anxiety, depression, trauma, and other challenges often turned to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain of their mental health issues. We provide a holistic treatment plan that addresses mental health issues and substance abuse simultaneously. Without addressing underlying causes of alcohol and drug use, your son could end up in an endless cycle of mental illness and substance use disorders.
What Can I Expect in Teen Treatment Centers?
Our adolescent treatment centers provide customized care plans for each adolescent or teenage boy. This treatment includes both evidence-based approaches and holistic approaches such as equine therapy and animal care therapy.
Other types of therapy included in our adolescent treatment centers include the following:
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling with peers in the same age group
- Substance abuse education
- Family therapy
- Certified academics
Our staff includes educators, therapists, and medical professionals dedicated to helping young boys leave substance use disorder in their past. By addressing drug and alcohol abuse early, you can give your loved one the best chance for a productive life.
Holistic and Experiential Therapies
Holistic therapies such as yoga and meditation can help young men learn to cope with their anxiety and stress in healthy ways. It also helps them develop interests outside of drugs and alcohol. Holistic therapies use nonmedical and nonscientific activities to promote fun and positivity.
Experiential therapies include exercises and outdoor activities that help adolescents and teens develop new interests. Our clients love to work with horses and other animals during their recovery. When clients learn new skills, it often boosts their confidence and self-esteem.
