Teen Centered Rehab Centers

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.

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabs

Like adults teens of often have the option of inpatient or outpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment allows a teen to be away from triggering factors while outpatient treatment allows the teen to stay at home or in school while they are recovering. These inpatient and outpatient rehabs come in a variety of types.

Ranch Like Rehabs

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:

  • team building,
  • horseback riding,
  • animal husbandry,
  • cooking,
  • cleaning, and
  • 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

Sports rehabs focus on team building along with recovery.

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,
  • survival skills,
  • mapping,
  • swimming and other water activities,
  • animal husbandry,
  • tracking, and
  • 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

One thing that is suggested to parents if their teen is in need of rehab is to find a rehab that they enjoy. If the teen is in an environment they find interesting and stimulating they have a higher rate of success when it comes to staying off drugs.

Many of these teen rehabs are designed with their age group in mind. These are just a few examples of teen rehabs that are offered. There are also ones in cities and ones that cater to specific likes and dislikes depending on the teen.
