Rehab for Teen Girls
Teen Substance Abuse Treatment Options
Teen drug rehabs specialize in gender-specific treatment options for teen girls with drug abuse and behavioral problems, and therapy in a caring environment. Freemyaddiction’s programs for teen girls with mental illness, behavioral issues, and drug or alcohol problems, provide gender-specific treatment options. This allows girls to open up in groups without judgment or apprehension, creating a better treatment experience. Teenage girls can deal with many different issues relating to addiction than teen boys. Studies have shown that teen girls are more susceptible to drug addiction issues than teen boys.
Allowing young women to focus on treatment and studies without the distraction of boys enables them to devote more time and energy not only to their school work but their treatment as well. When girls recover in a gender-specific treatment program for teens, they tend to not focus on their outer beauty and focus on inner healing while in treatment.
Most programs limit the time and activities with male clients if they have a co-ed facility. It can be important for teenage girls to interact with boys in an appropriate manner, limited to structured and heavily supervised activities. Getting your daughter into a program that has tutoring options, can aid the student that is showing signs of struggle. These treatment programs also can offer SAT preparation through online courses and even offer early college courses for the students who qualify for these programs.

Teen Girls More Vulnerable to Alcohol and Drug Use
Teenage girls perceive the benefits of drug and alcohol abuse as a positive change that can allow for the perception of beauty that is portrayed in the media. The pressure to stay thin and look the best they can has some adverse effects that can lead them down the path of addiction. The data provided is from a survey sponsored by the Partnership for a Drug-Free America® and the Met-life Foundation.
If you feel that your daughter, or someone you love, is in need of treatment for an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or has behavioral issues that need correcting please give us a call we are here to help.
