Drug and Alcohol Addiction Detox
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, in 2014, an estimated 1.3 million adolescents aged 12-17 had a substance use disorder. That’s 1 out of every 20 teenagers who were in need of treatment for drugs and/or alcohol. Finding the right substance abuse treatment program for teens can be a difficult task. If your teen is struggling with a drug or alcohol problem, it is important to choose a treatment center that offers detoxification.
At our facility, we offer a medically supervised drug and alcohol detox for teens ages 13 to 17. When your teen arrives at our facility, they will be assessed by our clinical director and psychiatrist. After the assessment, our medical staff will decide if detox will be a necessary part of their treatment plan. We only prescribe detoxes for teens that are physically dependent on drugs, alcohol or prescription medications.
During the detox process, your teen will be under the care of our medical doctors and nurses 24/7. The staff at our accredited treatment center will make sure your teen is safe and comfortable during the entire detox, which typically only lasts a few days. Two factors that affect the length of the detox are the substances that were abused and how long the substance was abused. Your teen will be evaluated throughout the detox and their treatment plan will be modified if necessary.

Purpose of a Medically-supervised Detox
The purpose detoxification is to safely remove the drugs and alcohol from your teen’s system. Another goal of detox is to ease your child’s withdrawal symptoms. We highly recommend that you seek professional help before your child goes through a detox.
Having your teen detox at home can put their life in jeopardy, especially if your teen is dependent on alcohol or benzodiazepines. However, your loved one can avoid any serious complications by detoxing at the Teen Treatment Center. Our team of medical professionals evaluates each teen upon admission and throughout the detox process to ensure their comfort and safety. After removing the drugs and alcohol from your teen’s system, he or she will be prepared to start the next phase of treatment.
Treating Teen Substance Abuse
Detox alone is not enough to treat your teen’s drug and/or alcohol problem. Once your teen completes detoxification, they will be ready for the next phase of Substance Abuse Treatment. At Teen Treatment Center, we use an integrative therapeutic approach to treat teens who struggle with substance abuse. We also help teens who are struggling with mental health and behavioral issues. During their stay, teens work on the mental and emotional aspects of their dependence in therapy.
We recognize that a one-size-first-all approach is not effective when treating substance abuse. We will create a personalized treatment plan for your child based on their needs and goals. A few of the therapies and services offered in our treatment plans include:
- Individual counseling
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Academic support
- Recreational therapy
- Spiritual care
We are dedicated to helping your teen overcome their substance abuse issues. With the help our treatment team, your loved one can fully recover.
