Where Families Find Support & Solutions

TSS: When Teens Need Addiction Treatment Centers

The School Solution helps families find schools and addiction treatment centers for their teens because we know that somewhere there is a place for every child to succeed; Karen can find that place. The School Solution is owned by Karen Mabie A certified educational consultant who is highly qualified to fully assess a child’s academic, social, and emotional needs so that they can be properly matched with the right program or addiction treatment center.

Contrary to what most people think about teens and addiction, the reality is that it can happen to anyone’s child even ours. It doesn’t matter how well we parent or what our income is, our teenagers today are at risk if dealing with addictions of all kinds. You probably already know that teens can become addicted to tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs. But even prescription drugs can be addictive. These days our teens have been going through a lot of stress and change coping with the pandemic and have a whole new set of addictions to treat. Teen addiction programs are designed to treat more than just addiction because substance abuse affects many aspects of a user’s life, including brain function and behaviors.

Fortunately, at The School Solution we have significant experience finding placement in addiction treatment centers for teens. There are many residential options with unique therapeutic and educational approaches, and solutions to meet any of your needs. With a comprehensive approach to placement Karen visits more than 60 schools and programs every year and personally evaluates each one to assess the specific therapeutic and educational supports they provide. 

There Is Help: Addiction Treatment For Teens Now

Addiction treatment for teens is an extremely serious nation-wide issue at the moment. Just because many teens are being home schooled at the moment it hasn’t stopped the widespread issue of how to find the best treatment center for addicted teens. At The School Solution we know that establishing early addiction treatment is vital during the teen years as rates of drug use doubles in young adults ages 18 to 25.

Some levels of experimentation and risk-taking behavior are expected during the teen years, as the prefrontal cortex and other regions of the brain involved in impulse control, willpower, and healthy decision-making are not yet fully developed. However, teen addiction is a problem that needs to be addressed with the help of medical and mental health professionals. In 2010,over 138,000 people ages 12 to 17 were treated at specialized addiction treatment centers. By going to addiction treatment centers troubled teens discover that they are not alone.

Addiction treatment centers are still open even amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Rehab for drug and alcohol addiction is an essential service, and for many families, the risks of alcohol poisoning or drug overdoses are more dangerous and urgent than the risk of coronavirus Just like all the medical professionals in our clinics and hospitals, treatment providers who work in rehab centers are dedicated to helping the community during such uncertain times. Addiction treatment centers are taking preventive measures to ensure that their facilities remain coronavirus-free.

While a wide variety of addiction treatment centers exist, finding the best environment to specifically help address your teens individual needs can be daunting. This kind of work is what our educational consultants do best.

Teens benefit from a sense of security and safety, which means that finding the right match means placement in an optimum environment where teens feel psychologically, emotionally and physically safe and therefore available to heal and grow. Teen treatment facilities are spread throughout the country and available in just about every state. Some families may want treatment close to home, while others may find it more beneficial to change scenery completely and attend a facility far from home.

The first step in finding the best match in an addiction treatment center is assessing needs and diagnosing the level of addiction so we can help you find the treatment center that is most appropriate. Different treatments are better for different levels of substance abuse and addiction, and some addiction treatments vary in their methods used as well as in the length of teen addiction treatment.
