Partnership for Drug Free Kids is an excellent place to start your Internet research
  8. 8. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center For teens, alcohol and drug abuse often go hand-in-hand with mood disorders like anxiety, depression, and cutting. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the program specialize in Dual Diagnosis or Coexisting Disorders? With teens, the incidence of mental illness and substance abuse is even higher than the adult population. Teens who undergo treatment for addiction should be thoroughly evaluated to determine whether their substance abuse stems from a co-occurring disorder. Unless adolescents with co-occurring disorders receive treatment for both their addiction and their mental behavioral issues, they are prone to have a relapse of their mood disorder, a return to their addiction abuse, or both.
  9. 9. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the program offer counseling and education for family members? A strong teen addiction treatment center supports the family systems approach to helping client(s) find solutions to problems or issues. This approach is very effective when working with teen behavioral problems, teen drug abuse, and the chaos occurring within the family.
  10. 10. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the program schedule include classroom time to help teen students keep up with their education? Academic programs provide teens with the opportunity to continue their high school education without losing time or credits. They will transfer a student’s high school transcripts from the school of origin and work with the student to match the academic courses and elective courses. Some will also work with the family and the teen to receive assignments from their school.
  11. 11. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center What is the length of stay of the program? Most teens suffering from drug and alcohol addiction need to get a firm foundation in recovery and may require 60-90 days of residential treatment as well as a solid aftercare plan that continues post-treatment support for the first year of recovery. Teens are broken when they enter treatment and fragile when they leave residential care. They need a supportive plan to keep them on the path to recovery. The research is very clear that longer term care is superior to shorter term care. The idea that quality treatment can be completed in 28-30 days has no basis in science. In fact, the 28 day treatment model was developed because that is what insurance would pay for it, not because it works.
  12. 12. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Are recreational activities included in the program? Recreation and physical activity is a necessary activity for teens. It encourages team work and reinforces skills the teens are discussing in therapy. A strong teen rehab provides recreation and physical activity on a daily basis.
  13. 13. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Will the facility continue to provide support for my teen in order to help him keep up with his recovery goals? A teen rehab is only as strong as its robust aftercare program
  14. 14. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Is the program flexible? Adolescents can change quickly. Programs need to offer responsive, individualized programming that changes to meet the needs of each teen as his or her needs change.
  15. 15. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the program encourage teamwork and participation? You can force an adolescent to stay in treatment, but you can’t compel genuine participation. Programs that encourage teen participation in treatment planning and goal setting have a better chance of motivating lasting behavioral change.
  16. 16. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the teen addiction treatment center have a pool? If you are surfing the web looking for a teen rehab and you come across a teen treatment center’s web site featuring a gorgeous pool like the one above – find another rehab. If a rehab relies on superficial features like a swimming pool then they are probably concentrating their efforts on marketing rather then focusing on what’s most important – getting your teen better.
  17. 17. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Should I choose a rehab near my home or far away? It is well worth the extra dollars to send your teen to an out-of-state teen rehab. By taking your teen away from the environment in which he or she developed the drug or alcohol addiction, can greatly assist in the recovery process.
  18. 18. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Does the teen treatment center have a strong track record? You want to select a teen rehab with a strong reputation that shows up on Google and has appeared frequently in the media as industry experts in their profession.
  19. 19. Parent’s Guide to Choosing a Teen Treatment Center Can the treatment center perform Interventions? In some instances parents do not have the capabilities of sending their teen to a rehab due to a myriad of reasons including fear of their son or daughter. A teen treatment center with a professional interventionist can allow the parents to receive the assistance required to help their teen get better by performing an intervention and then bringing the child over to the treatment facility.
