Rehab for Teen Boys
Teen Substance Abuse Treatment Options
When confronted with the task of finding the best inpatient rehab center for your son, there are many different models and modalities to choose from. When choosing a teen drug rehabilitation center, researching and locating the correct treatment program for your teen can be the best choice to achieve long-lasting results. Drug and alcohol rehab centers for teen boys typically work better if the program is a gender-specific program.
Our gender-specific treatment programs specialize in behavioral modification treatment as well as drug and alcohol programs. Being able to focus on treatment in an environment that is free from distractions from teenage girls helps keep the focus on treatment while in treatment.
Our treatment centers offer schooling in-house for teenage boys allowing them to devote more time and energy towards their treatment and education. Classes are generally taught through online programs with the help of tutors that make sure the student gets the most out of their schooling. Our programs also offer SAT preparation and some college courses for those who qualify. Some of the programs that are offered do have some co-ed activities and groups in a highly supervised setting. It can be important for boys to interact with girls in an appropriate and structured manner.
Studies have shown that the best option for teenage boys entering treatment is to enroll in an inpatient all-male program for addiction. When a teen has low motivation and really doesn’t believe that there is a problem, entering into an inpatient program can provide the individual with the tools necessary to ensure their continued success.
Once the young man has finished their program they will be encouraged to follow up treatment with counseling and aftercare further ensuring and reinforcing what was learned while in rehab.
If you feel that your son has a problem with addiction or is exerting behavioral problems please give us a call and we can start discussing options for their treatment plan.
SAMHSA reported, that almost 25 million young people aged 12 and older are current illegal drug users, or they had used drugs within the past month. Marijuana is the drug most commonly used by teens. In 2013 alone, almost 20 million (7.5 percent of Americans aged 12 and older) were marijuana users — a jump from about 6 percent in 2007. Abuse of other drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, and prescription painkillers, was relatively unchanged from 2012 to 2013, the researchers added.
