Inspirations teen drug rehab dining provides freedom, flexibility, and just plain good food
While most teen drug and alcohol rehabs serve their teens cafeteria-style meals where breakfast, lunch, and dinner take place at set times and the clients do not have a say in what they want to eat, Inspirations for Youth and Families gives their teens the freedom to choose what they want to eat, when they want to eat, and where they want to eat their meals.
Since Inspirations’ teens live in apartments equipped with a kitchenette they have more flexibility to serve their food.
“We are given a piece of paper and we are allowed to choose what food we want as long as it is healthy,” said Carly, a teen at Inspirations for Youth and Families. “Every Thursday we go food shopping and store the food in our apartment to eat throughout the week.”
Carly added: “I really enjoy how we can pick what we want to eat at Inspirations. I love how we have a wide variety of what we want to eat at dinner and how it is always served on time so we don’t have to wait. I also like how nice the people are who serve the food and how healthy the food is.”

Every Saturday the peer leaders go with the behavior technicians to the supermarket and the teens pick out movies to watch that night. They also buy soda and popcorn. The teens really enjoy the soft-drinks since it is the only time during the week they are allowed to have it.
“It is really fun to hang out with everyone and not have to worry about stuff for awhile,” Carly said.
The Inspiration’s teens reside in apartments that have fully functioning kitchenettes so they can store their food, prepare it, and snack at their discretion. Inspiration’s lunch and dinner is catered for them.
Inspirations Teens go out to eat
As a reward Inspirations takes its teens out to dinner. This also teaches them proper etiquette and how to behave in public. The teens are not only enjoying their time out, but they are learning critical life-skills. The teens have lunch at the treatment center and dinner at the residence. The delicious and healthy meals are from our catering company.
Barbecues and special occasions
Inspirations also have barbecues on the weekends and during holidays like Easter or Christmas they have fancy meals catered in.
So if you are a parent and you receive a call from your teen that they are hungry – it is important to understand that teens say the “darndest” things. Now you know your teen drug rehab dining experience is under control at Inspirations for Youth and Families.
