Teen Substance Abuse Treatment
Teen substance abuse effects too many families. Are you ready to get rid of the painful effects of substance abuse in your family so you can once again experience your family as a whole?
Teen Substance Abuse Overview
Your teen’s alcohol addiction might start with a beer taken from the refrigerator when no one is home. It might start with liquor at an unsupervised party. It could start with peer pressure from friends. It doesn’t matter how the alcohol addiction began – what matters is getting help for your teen. Many teens who suffer from alcohol addiction also suffer from low self-esteem. Our alcohol addiction treatment will not only make your teen healthy, but it will also help your teen improve his or her self-esteem. Alcohol rehab at Inspirations is not like a traditional rehab because our program is only for teens. Alcohol abuse at a young age will usually turn into a serious alcohol addiction.
Why Teens Turn to Substances:
- To feel good
- To fit in with their friends
- To relieve stress
Substance Abuse Statistics
- According to a study at Columbia University, underage drinkers account for 11% of all alcohol consumed in the U.S.

- Teens who start drinking before the age of 15 are five times more likely to develop alcohol dependency later in life.

Treatment for Substance Abuse
Inspirations for Youth and Families can be the alcohol treatment program that saves your child’s life. At Inspirations, we will diagnose, treat, and work to fix the root of your teenager’s drinking problem. During your teen’s stay, they will attend co-ed or gender-based treatment programs and therapy sessions. Our therapy sessions include:
- Family therapy
- Music therapy
- Art therapy
- Recreational therapy
- Trauma therapy
Your teen will work though six different levels of alcohol treatment, with each level offering more privileges than the last. We will help your child to reach the goal of becoming sober, and we will equip them with the skills they need to stay that way. We are confident that our alcohol addiction treatment program will be a step in the right direction for your family.
Inspirations addiction treatment program (teen substance use and abuse rehabilitation) allows your loved one to work through emotional conflicts within the safe boundaries of our facility. As teens move through levels, they are assisted in developing living skills, interpersonal skills and relapse prevention skills. In addition to the regular program, adolescents attend special workshops designed to meet their needs and attend on-site tutorial services to help them reach their educational goals. The setting at Inspirations is designed for our Adolescent Program by allowing room for exploration, meditation and activities geared toward the high energy level of teens. Inspirations program provides treatment for adolescent patients whose addictive disease, emotional and behavioral problems prevent adequate functioning in a less restrictive setting. It is the philosophy of the staff at Inspirations that these behaviors are symptoms of deeper problems that may include difficulties in the emotional life of the adolescent and in his/her family and peer group. This philosophy promotes the provision of a secure, structured environment to address chemical dependence, inclusive of these difficulties while encouraging independence and self esteem for the adolescent. It further promotes that every effort be made to involve the family in an intensive family program, as all members of the family are adversely affected by chemical dependency.
