According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, many children begin to use drugs as early as the age of 12. Most of these children try drugs once or twice and then leave them alone. Unfortunately, as teen experimentation continues to increase the need for teen centered rehab centers also increases. There are several types of teen rehabs that are available depending on the personality, problem, and type of person they are.
Many teen rehabs use ranches or farms as their primary place of treatment. These ranches are specifically designed to help teens learn responsibly and animal husbandry. They engage in:
other normal farming activities.
Farming rehabs are meant to teach both abstinence from drugs and responsibility to things other than themselves. There are also all of the standard drug treatments while the teen is here.
Sports rehabs focus on team building along with recovery.
These rehabs are centered around the more athletic of the teen addicts. They teach team building and sports relationships. They also engage in standard drug treatments while learning different sports that enter them.
Many sports rehabs also teach young athletes instead of just simple drug users. They operate similar to summer training camps as well as drug rehabs.
Outdoor Camping Facilities
These rehabs are often meant to help teens with self reliance. They range from luxury camping to normal tent camping. Rehab patients learn about the land and how to live off of it while engaging in esteem building activities. Some camping activities that teens might learn are:
identifying wild plants,
cooking on an open fire,
swimming and other water activities,
other esteem-building activities.
Most of the camping rehab facilities are closely monitored and have lower than average staff to client ratios. These rehabs work best for those with an interest in the outdoors.
How to Get Your Teen Help
