Getting Your Teen or Young Adult to Treatment

Change Your Teen’s Trajectory with Addiction Treatment

As a parent with a teenager struggling with substance use, it is easy to feel overwhelmed as you try to do what is best for your child. You may have fears about their future, but the good news is, you can help them to build a better life for themselves beyond addiction – and that can start today.

Our comprehensive and individualized methods can achieve the highest rate of success because we address issues while your teen is still in their developmental years. We help teenagers address critical developmental needs in a way that restores family relationships instead of further straining them.

Drug Rehab 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

Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for 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.

The Obvious Choice for Effective Treatment

At Sandstone Care, we believe in personalized and specialized care. Unlike generic treatment approaches, we understand that each individual’s circumstances are unique.

Through thorough assessments, our licensed therapists, medical professionals, and experienced staff gain a deep understanding of your background, challenges, and goals. Comprehensive programming, therapy, and education, equips your family with the necessary tools to support your loved ones’ recovery journey.

With our comprehensive continuum of care, you’ll receive the right level of support at each stage of recovery. Whether you need high-support care, or a few hours of outpatient treatment a week, our expert team will collaborate with you to find what works best for you.

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 seem to be isolated, depressed, and unable to enjoy the things they used to be passionate about.

We can’t change people. We can’t change families. But we can empower you and your teen with the tools, steps, and community you need for long-lasting change.

At our teen addiction treatment centers, we help you do just this. Our programs include various experiential therapies such as art therapy, yoga, physical activities, and outdoor adventures to help teens become their happiest, healthiest selves.

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.

Supporting Your Entire Family

A substance use disorder does not happen in isolation. We will involve your family at every stage of the treatment process. We won’t focus exclusively on your teen.


It’s vital that your family is involved in treatment to better understand dynamics that might have influenced your child’s substance use disorder.

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 behavioral disorders 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 is a big step, but coming to that conclusion may take some time. There are several signs that getting help is necessary, such as struggling with mental health issues like depression or anxiety. Some other signs may include that they are:

  • Trying, and failing, to quit using on their own
  • Holding drug or alcohol use as 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
  • Consistently using drugs or alcohol regardless of negative consequences or problems caused by substance use

The amount of treatment needed varies greatly and depends on your child’s individual needs. At Sandstone Care, we believe in treating our clients as a whole person instead of just treating their substance use disorder or mental health disorders in isolation. Our program is individualized to meet those specific needs and as such length of stay may vary. Navigate to one of our specific teen treatment programs to see the standard timeline for each.

Teen Residential or inpatient treatment can be necessary in certain instances. We recommend completing a comprehensive clinical assessment with a licensed professional to help determine the appropriate level of care required.

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 program 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) 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 including group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy sessions, academic and vocational support, and community activities.
