Treatment Insights

Adolescents face different challenges than adults during substance abuse treatment and must be approached differently as a result. Unique developmental issues and environmental considerations (such as peer pressure) must be taken into consideration, which is why Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers offers a comprehensive, clinically-based treatment program designed exclusively for adolescents and their families. In addition to alcohol and drug abuse, the facility offers treatment for co-occurring mental health issues and eating disorders.

Areas of Focus
Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

Client & Family Support Groups

Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
