Aubrey, TX (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
Drug and alcohol addiction can happen to any age group. But the methods of treatment aren’t necessarily the same for everyone. More and more teens and young people are falling victims to the hazards of drug and alcohol abuse. Drug Rehab Center Aubrey has developed new programs designed to help younger addicts conquer their addictions. The programs include peer counseling and dual diagnosis.
Stephen J. is a counselor at Drug Rehab Center Aubrey. During his 12 years working with addicts, he’s noticed a noticeable trend.
“A good portion of adults who check into rehab have a long history of drug and alcohol abuse,” Stephen said. “Many of them started experimenting during their teenage years.”
Helping young addicts receive the proper care is crucial. The sooner the problem is addressed, the better the chance of recovery and avoiding further issues in later years. One of the major reasons for teens experiment with drugs and alcohol comes from peer pressure. Many young people have the need to belong to a popular group. They’re often bombarded with images from television and the movies glamourizing drugs and alcohol. Another reason is some young adults come from homes where drugs and alcohol abuse is prevalent.
“Unfortunately, we’ve found there’s a correlation between teen addicts and family history,” Stephen said. “It’s why we feel it’s important to receive proper direction from parents.”
But when there’s abuse at home, many young people often turn to their friends. Drug Rehab Center Aubrey has developed new peer and family therapy groups to help teens cope and eventually beat their addictions.
“The treatment of young people is a more delicate process,” Stephen said. “It’s important to keep in mind we’re dealing with minds that haven’t fully developed—particularly emotionally.”
Drug Rehab Center Aubrey’s young adult programs are currently in their early stages. But the facility has seen several positive results. The center’s staff is fully trained to treat addicts of all ages.
