Teen Detox and Treatment Program

The Drug Detox Center specializes in teen drug and alcohol addiction. Our residential teen detoxification program is 30 to 90 days. We also offer a long term teen detoxification program which lasts for 90 days or more. Teens in our program will have access to accredited on-site schooling and tutoring.

Teen Drug and Alcohol Detox

The teen detoxification program will begin with the detox process. Your child may need to detox before admission to the rehab center if he/she is addicted to:

  • Prescription drugs (OxyContin, Roxicodone)
  • Depressants (Valium, Xanax)
  • Alcohol
  • Heroin

We believe it is important to cleanse the body of the many toxins found in drugs and alcohol. However, it is only the first step on the long road to recovery.

The detox process will usually last for a week, depending on how frequently drugs or alcohol were abused. During this time, your teenager will be closely monitored by a team of doctors and nurses. The doctors at the Drug Detox Center will be able to prescribe non-addictive medication to alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms. We do NOT recommend home detox because mild withdrawal symptoms may become unmanageable very quickly. Severe complications from sudden withdrawal may cause stroke, seizures, heart attack, and even death.

After the detox process is complete, clients in our teen detoxification program will begin rehab at the center. Our treatment combines:

  • Recreational sports
  • Group therapy
  • Daily NA and/or AA meetings
  • Educational field trips
  • Motivational speakers
  • Outings to museums, movie theaters, the beach, and more
  • One-on-one meetings between the teen and an addiction counselor

Therapists work with our clients to help them discover why they became addicted to drugs or alcohol. We also offer family therapy as part of our teen detoxification program. We believe family support is imperative during the recovery process. Our family therapists will work with the client and his/her parents to resolve issues that happened before treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction brings chaos and destruction on the entire family. We have found that parents and siblings usually need treatment too in order to learn how to properly support the addict during his or her recovery process.

We offer dual diagnosis treatment as part of the teen detoxification program. Dual diagnosis therapists will assess each teen’s mental health and decide if the client needs mental health counseling in addition to drug or alcohol addiction treatment. Our therapists will create an individualized plan for clients in our teen detoxification program who also have a co-existing mental disorder.

Our staff is motivated to do what it takes to help your child overcome addiction. We have a supportive team of in-house doctors, nurses, addiction counselors, psychiatrists, and therapists. Our rehab center offers a casual and safe atmosphere for teens to just be themselves. We believe in individualized care for each client.
