Adolescents, for many reasons, may find life challenging ? especially during their time in middle school and high school. Multiple environmental stressors such as school performance, work obligations, relationship challenges and hormonal changes can be hard to understand, let alone endure.
For relief, many teenagers seek drug or alcohol use as an outlet to numb their pain or as a form of rebellion. Over time, a physical, chemical and psychological dependency can arise, sending their young lives into a downward spiral.
Teen Addiction Is a Family Matter
Just like adult alcohol or drug addiction, early intervention and treatment are necessary for teens to begin the road to recovery and to help you get back family life as it was meant to be ? whole. However, there are certain sensitivities and needs that teenagers have, setting them apart from adults.
At the Teen Treatment Center, we acknowledge and embrace these crucial differences. In support of better treatment programs for these vulnerable patients, we designed a separate facility for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 who are suffering from drug or alcohol dependency.
Accredited by The Joint Commission, our specialized teen addiction treatment program, based in the West Palm Beach area of Florida, helps youth overcome addiction and any associated mental health or behavioral issues.

Teen Addiction Treatment Brings Peace of Mind from Day One
From the beginning, we educate the whole family on what it means to embark on the journey of recovery. Beyond this, we communicate to each family member what it takes to support your loved one during and after inpatient treatment ? because recovery doesn?t end when you get them back home.
Patients in our teen addiction treatment program experience the highest level of care under 24-hour supervision. Accommodations include gender-separate lodging: Patients can focus on personal awareness without unnecessary distractions, while their parents have peace of mind.
Our team of medical doctors, psychiatrists, licensed therapists, nurses and more is dedicated to helping young adults see that there is a better life in front of them. With you, we map out their road of hope and empower them to take it.
Holistic therapies and counseling sessions that teenagers can relate to and enjoy are provided, as are family workshops and addiction education.
Evidence-Based Treatment for Teens Helps Uncover the Root Causes
Substance abuse is rarely the only challenge that faces these adolescents. While the main goal is to stop drug or alcohol use, there tend to be underlying conditions that contribute to the substance dependency.
Our team collaboratively creates an individualized treatment plan for every teen to more effectively address his or her unique background, issues and needs going forward.
Evidence-based treatment modalities are included in our teen program, such as:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Academic Support
- Recreational and Peer-Based Activities
- Spiritual Care
- Life Skills Training
- Court Liaison Program
- Aftercare Plan
To Treat the Whole Teen, It Takes the Whole Family
Adolescence can be an emotional time, even in the best of circumstances. Adding substance abuse into the family dynamic can exacerbate the existing turmoil, breaking trust between parent and teen and teen and siblings to a point where the damage done can seem permanent. Our therapists work closely with members of your family to help rebuild trust and restore healthy relationships, for a lifetime.
If your teen is amidst drug or alcohol addiction and behavioral issues, there?s a better way to live. Give us a call at any time if you?re looking to learn more about our teen addiction treatment program.
