Addiction Treatment for Adolescents

Sprout Health Texas offers a wide variety of programs designed to effectively treat an adolescents addiction.

Why Addiction Is Prevalent Among Adolescents

Addiction Treatment for AdolescentsResearch shows that during the brain’s growth and development stage, the frontal cortex, which controls our ability to think critically, solve problems and make decisions, is immature and will not reach full maturity until an individual reaches 25 years of age. Therefore, adolescents will not make rational decisions and some may continuously make mistakes that can impact their life forever. They have not developed certain coping mechanisms necessary to deal with the stress of life. Their emotions are overshadowed by their secondary sex characteristics. Put simply, they are not thinking about anything other than how to fit in and what to do with their sexual energy.

Medical experts believe that adolescents are trapped between wanting independence and not wanting to be accountable for their actions.

Sprout Health Texas understands that adolescents are still developing both mentally and physically; therefore, they provide highly individualized treatment plans that work with their unique needs. We are aware of the vulnerability of adolescents and have learned to adjust our treatment methods to ensure the best possible results during rehabilitation. We understand that adolescents are not yet fully developed mentally or physically; therefore, we adjust our methods of approach when dealing with such combative patients.

Adolescents usually resent both their parents and our staff because they believe we are trying to change who they are but we reassure them that we are just trying to help. We recommend including family and loved ones in group therapy sessions in order for everyone to gain an understanding of each other. We encourage open communication in order to fix any underlying family issues as well as teach the family how to support their loved one through the process of rehabilitation.

It is important to treat substance addiction as soon as possible in order to make it easier to overcome it. The tools we teach our patients will help them remain sober and healthy for many years to come.
