Alcohol treatment has been around for a long time. Effective alcohol treatment for adults goes back decades. The key word in that sentence, however, is “adults.” Effective teen alcohol treatment hasn’t been around nearly as long. Too often, the earliest incarnations of alcohol treatment for teens didn’t treat the teens like they were teens, they treated them like they were already adults. They used the same techniques and the same methods that were used on adults, so they were ineffective. Here at the Insight Treatment Center, our alcohol treatment for teens is focused on and developed solely for teens.
Proven Teen Alcohol Treatment
When a teenager develops a drinking problem, it can be devastating for the entire family. Everything in a teenager’s life can be affected. Indeed, many of those other factors in the teenager’s life could be what’s helping to cause drinking. That’s why our alcohol treatment for teens (as well as our treatment for other behaviors) deals with all of the factors in the teen’s life. Instead of isolating just on biological issues or relationship ones, we treat everything that’s going on with the teen. That way, we’re able to better help them develop skills for sober living both in the present as well as the future.
Treating Symptoms of Mental Health Issues
For so many teens, a drinking problem isn’t just about drinking. Rather, drinking is a symptom of other mental health issues that the teen might be dealing with. They may not talk about it, they might not be 100% aware of the issues themselves, but we’ve found over the years that so many teenagers are dealing with mental health issues that happen to manifest themselves in problems with alcohol and drugs. Then, by treating those underlying mental health issues, we’re better able to treat the teen in general. Once those issues are cleared up or sometimes even just addressed, then everyone involved is better equipped to deal with symptoms like alcohol.
Specialized Problems Call for Specialized Plans
What causes one teen to drink alcohol to excess may not cause the next to do so, and vice versa. That’s just one of the many reasons that we make sure to offer comprehensive yet individualized treatment plans. Over the decades that our professionals have been doing this, we’ve seen what works best. We know what kind of treatments will work for what kinds of teens in what specific situations. So, calling upon that experience, we’re better able to put together a treatment plan that’s just right for your teen.
More than Alcohol Treatment for Teens
Many of the teens that come to Insight Treatment are dealing with addictions to drugs and alcohol. However, many others are suffering from self-harming or suicidal behaviors. We’re able to treat all of these and many more. Thousands of teens have walked out of Insight Treatment filled with hope.
