Helping Your Teen Feel Like Themselves Again

Addiction can cause devastating changes to your child. Beyond the physical risks, you may have also noticed that they are isolating, have low self-esteem, and are unable to enjoy the things they used to be passionate about.

Our treatment programming can empower you and your teen with the tools, resources, and community they need to create long-lasting change.

Along with evidence-based therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), our programs introduce teens to various experiential therapies such as art therapy, yoga, physical activities, and outdoor adventures, helping them become their happiest, healthiest selves.

Teen Drug Rehab Treatment Options

Marijuana Treatment

Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.

Alcohol Treatment

Binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are especially problematic for the growth and development of young people.

Opioid Treatment

Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.

Stimulant Treatment

Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.

Teen Therapy Options

Your teen may not resonate with traditional, sit-on-the-couch talk therapy as they work on recovering from their substance use. That’s why we combine several types of treatments to ensure that your child is able to heal in a way that feels natural to them.

Dual Diagnosis: Breaking the Cycle

Addiction and mental health often go hand-in-hand. Your teen will work on both at Sandstone.

Often teens struggling with drug and alcohol use also have underlying mental health or mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, or personality disorders. Our clinical team focuses on helping the teen and their family identify and improve these underlying concerns.

By addressing the root cause, your teen will be able to have recovery that lasts longer and builds a stronger foundation as they move towards adulthood.

You Have Questions, We Have Answers

Check out our selection of frequently asked questions — or call 888-850-1890 to ask us today.

Realizing that your child needs help with substance abuse is a big step.

There are several signs that getting help is necessary, such as struggling with mental health issues like depression or anxiety.

Some other signs that your teen’s wellness is at stake may include behaviors like:

  • Trying and failing to quit using on their own
  • Behaving as though drug use or alcohol use is their first priority
  • Having difficulty maintaining relationships with friends and family
  • Abandoning school, work, or social activities in favor of substance use
  • Engaging in risky behaviors or acts of self-harm
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using
  • Struggling with responsible decision-making
  • Consistently using drugs or alcohol regardless of negative consequences or problems caused by substance use

The amount of treatment may vary depending on your child’s individual needs. Even after treatment, most individuals need some form of ongoing aftercare to sustain their recovery.

At Sandstone Care, we believe in treating adolescents as a whole person. Instead of just treating drug abuse in isolation, our program also addresses any co-occurring disorders during substance abuse treatment. This means our rehab programming also includes mental health services.

Navigate to our teen levels of care page to see the different types of treatment and their timelines, including medical detox and outpatient care. Verify your health insurance to see if your teen’s treatment can be covered.

Teen Residential or inpatient treatment can be necessary in certain instances, especially when substance misuse has been an ongoing problem and your teen hasn’t had success in outpatient recovery programs.

We recommend completing a comprehensive clinical assessment with a licensed professional to help determine the appropriate level of care required for adolescent substance use.

We are not an eating disorder treatment facility. However, if your child is showing minor signs of an eating disorder alongside primary mental health or substance use concerns, we may still be able to offer treatment.

Our admissions team will be able to speak with you about your child’s unique situation and inform you as to whether or not residential treatment at Sandstone Care could be beneficial.

An assessment at Sandstone Care is simply a conversation. It includes one of our licensed therapists, the individual who is considering the program, and any of their family members that they feel supported by.

The purpose of the assessment is to better understand your teen’s unique needs and situation. It also determines how appropriate our teen rehab is for them and which level of care is medically and clinically necessary. The assessment process typically happens in person at one of our offices and lasts around an hour and a half to two hours.

IOP stands for “Intensive Outpatient Program”. IOP programs are most helpful for teens who have completed a higher level of care (such as residential treatment at one of our residential programs) and need to step down, and for teens who struggle with substance use or mental health concerns, but want to limit interrupting school and work.

Our after-school teen IOP offers up to 17 hours per week of clinical services and recovery support including group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy sessions, mental health treatment, academic and vocational support services, and community activities.
