For anyone wishing to recover from drug and alcohol addiction, it can be an uphill battle. For teens especially, it can be a long road. Parents may not know how to deal with their child’s substance abuse issues, especially if it is compounded with a dual diagnosis and other emotional problems. Counseling and therapy may be a good start, but it may not provide the whole answer. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have many in-depth treatments that will help teens rediscover themselves in a sober light, such as our residential extended care program in Washington. Sometimes a troubled adolescent needs to take that extra step for long-term success and recovery.
We provide traditional therapy such as group therapy and individual therapy, but also allow troubled youth to integrate with the community. As part of our long-term program, teens will volunteer locally and learn how to help others, participate with daily chores within the residence, and learn about healthier choices, including living a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle. Accountability and responsibility are two points we concentrate on in our extended care facility. We also believe in non-conventional therapy, such as nature and hiking therapies. To rediscover purpose, teens will participate in journal writing and self-reflection.
The stress a teenager is under can be too tough to bear, and they are not equipped with the coping skills and mechanisms that adults have. We like to add more tools to a teenager’s toolbox so that they can better cope with life.
