With millions of teenagers struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness and behavioral health disorders in the United States, the time to address these issues has never been more crucial.
When these problems go unaddressed, not only do they affect teens but they affect the community as well: disruption in school performance, health issues, legal problems, and social issues within the family dynamic.
The need to help teens get through the tough years is becoming more evident, which is why we’re happy to announce that Teen Treatment Center will be hosting our first annual Teen Behavioral Health Summit, featuring Dr. Drew Pinsky.Join us for this exciting all-day event at: The Palm Beach Convention Center West Palm Beach, Florida, February 27, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
