How Teen Support Groups Help in Teen Rehab
Have you been researching rehab facilities for teenagers and none of them seem like a place you would want your teenager to go? Are you looking for teen rehab but don’t want to just drop your kid off at some facility? The truth is that you can’t be too careful or too selective when it comes to finding a rehab facility for your child. Here at Insight Treatment, we’ve helped so many teenagers to discover exactly what underlying causes of their addiction and/or mental health struggles are, and then to overcome them. Our teen support groups have been extremely effective in this regard.
Teen Support Groups: Learn from (and With) Their Peers
Teenagers struggling with addiction often feel like they’re alone. “Alone” in that no one supports them, understands them, and/or is going through the same struggles that they are. Our teen support groups help teenagers in many ways, not the least of which is showing that all three of those beliefs are empirically false. In these groups, teenagers will see other teens, their age, similar to those, who have gone through the same struggles. Some, in fact, will be further along the path to recovery than they are. So, they’ll be interacting with and supported by someone who shows there is a real, viable path forward.
Social Skills, Support, and Shared Experiences
It can be hard for teens to develop their interpersonal skills. But, it can be that much more difficult when they’re dealing with addiction, mental health struggles, and so much more. These groups give teens a real opportunity to grow and develop those skills with other teens. So often, we’ve seen a teenager thought of as surly, who only kept to themself, opening up in these groups when they see other teenagers do the same.
Professional, Trained Counseling Professionals
The strength of our teen support groups is, as always, the teens themselves. In addition, our professional counselors help so much, too. They run these groups so that every teen doesn’t just feel like they’re a part of the group, they are a part of the group. Drawing upon the best training and years of experience, they can put together a teen support group that is very much a real “group.” Focused on creating a supportive, safe environment where teens can feel free to open up about their experiences, our groups have helped teenagers for a long period of time.
Teen Rehab: Beyond Groups
While we’re quite proud of our teen therapy groups and the environment that we’ve created, there’s so much more to Insight Treatment than just the groups. We have multiple facilities all over the Southern California area, so, odds are, there’s one near where you and your family are. Speaking of families, we have resources for family members, too, so that they can be as positively involved as possible in helping their teens to thrive.
