Lasting Recovery Through Custom Substance Abuse Programs

substance abuse programs for teenagersHelping teens overcome drug and alcohol problems and navigate the tumultuous emotional tides of adolescence isn’t quite the same as helping adults with similar problems. Teens are going thru so many changes as they are moving from childhood to adulthood and must surmount so many developmental issues. They are developing cognitively, physically and emotionally. They are changing biologically. Understanding these developmental issues and adapting treatment to the teenager’s needs is critical if we are to truly help them. Their learning style, family norms, emotional deficits, stage of development and co-occurring psychiatric issues must be conceptualized. Additionally it takes a layer of compassion, patience and empathy to be able to work with troubled teens. The adolescent specialists at Summit Behavioral Health encompass these traits. Clinicians are able to identify and treat psychiatric and other life difficulties. Our onsite psychiatrists and clinical nurse practitioners are able to evaluate and treat co-occurring psychiatric concerns as well.
