Nothing will interrupt a young person’s life faster than an alcohol or drug addiction. As a parent, your number one concern has to be your child’s welfare, especially as a young adult. In the case where you are a young adult, you might find yourself missing opportunities that could make a tremendous impact on your life. In either case, a teen treatment center offers numerous benefits.
Teen Addiction Statistics
Based on a 2013 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration study, more than half of the 2.8 million new illicit drug users were under 18-years old. They also found that nearly 23% of people between 18–20 reported using illicit drugs within a 30-day period prior to the study. These statistics indicate that teen drug use is prevalent.
Why a Teen Treatment Center is the Best Solution
During the late teens and early twenties, young adults start making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Imagine how hard it is to make those decisions while battling a drug or alcohol addiction. A quality teen treatment center can help get things back on track. In fact, our unique treatment approach can encourage lasting recovery.
Sober College in Los Angeles, California, could play a pivotal role in helping you or your child experience a new beginning. Our programs focuses not only on treatment, but also providing a college atmosphere through our partnership with Woodbury University.
