If there is a young person close to you who is abusing drugs or alcohol we want you to know there is a successful solution available immediately. We have been helping young adults for years.

The chemistry of addiction is the same for adults and adolescents. However, because the brain is not fully developed until their mid-twenties, the progression of addiction can happen much more rapidly in teens and young adults. Most adolescents who are addicted have adopted a group of friends and habits in which drug and alcohol use/abuse is the norm. A key element of treatment is exposure to another peer group – one that believes there is a better way to act, think and live.

Our adolescent inpatient treatment centers have the medical staff and counselors who understand young people and the disease of addiction including teen mentors that have recovered.

Best Psychological Remedies

The best psychological practices and remedy for teen addiction, or behavioral disorders is a combination of clinical coupled with peer group recovery. This usually requires a period of time separated from their lifestyles and their current peer group. An inpatient treatment program away from the home, or an inpatient wilderness program are the most successful.


Our wilderness therapy program helps the student and family understand how a specific cluster of symptoms associated with their diagnosis has impacted the student’s developmental progression. A Wilderness Treatment disrupts lifestyle that the teen has become accustomed to and reintegrates the student into a new age-appropriate developmental progression.

A teen on a troubled developmental course does not struggle with a lack of entertainment in his life. What he lacks is the ability to master the mundane responsibilities that come with school, work, and family relationships.

The goal is to help teens find meaning in those daily activities, rather than search for an outside “thrill.” A typical day will include hiking, learning and practicing wilderness survival skills, orienteering, botanical identification, journaling, and low-impact camping.

Each of these activities is part of a sophisticated clinical approach to therapy.
