Young Adults

Next StepOur Young Adult Center

When teens or young adults are caught in a cycle of addiction, it is common for them to resist support from family and friends. In many cases, they view addiction treatment as an undeserved punishment or a violation of their privacy. To maximize success, young adults should participate in an addiction treatment program that creates a safe, supportive environment and teaches them to manage age-specific challenges.

Adolescents facing peer and societal pressures may resort to drugs, alcohol, and other addictions to manage stress, dull pain, or boost self-esteem. Adolescent addiction treatment programs can help teens and young adults achieve and maintain sobriety while balancing the stressors of work, family, health, and changing social environments.
