Teens and young adults face special challenges when overcoming drug or alcohol addiction. As such, many programs for older adults don’t produce successful outcomes. However, an adolescent treatment center like Zelus Recovery provides the necessary tools to change the direction of a young person’s life.

Adolescent Issues Affecting Drug Use

A teen boy receives counseling at an adolescent treatment centerThose under 25 often struggle to find their place in society. Often, they haven’t found life purpose and may feel foreign in their own skin. Above all, our goal is making them feel as comfortable as possible at our adolescent treatment center.

Overall, teens and young adults are prone to peer pressure. This can lead to a relapse unless substance abuse programs address ways to overcome this pressure. Learning to make healthy decisions is crucial to breaking the cycle of addiction.

Additionally, young people are less financially stable and face economic difficulties when getting sober. Fortunately, we accept many forms of insurance, whether it’s through the adolescent’s employer or the parents.

Family-Based Approach

At our adolescent treatment center, we use a family approach to treatment. This is especially helpful when treating young people because many of them still live at home. Involving the entire family provides clients with a strong support system. Over time, this goes a long way in preventing future relapse.

Additionally, our family-based approach brings comfort to those suffering because of their loved one’s addiction. Group counselors show family members how to meet their needs first to ensure the necessary care for others. Counselors also address areas of dysfunction that hinder recovery or increase the chances of relapse.

Intimate Setting

By design, we have a small number of staff members. Over the years, we’ve found that teens and young adults benefit from a small staff-to-client ratio. This allows for better relationship building, which is ideal for overcoming addiction.

Additionally, our intimate setting allows us to really get to know family members. Family programs are at the heart of what we do. Therefore, we achieve maximum effectiveness by working closely with parents, siblings, grandparents, and other close relatives.
