Are There Christian Rehab Centers for Teens?

The teenage years can be one of the most difficult periods in a person’s life. Teens struggling with alcohol and drug abuse issues have an especially hard time finding their way. Watching a teen fade away while addiction takes over his or her personality can quickly drain the life out of a family.

According to the U. S. Department of Health & Human Services, in 2014, an estimated 39 percent of high school seniors reported engaging in alcohol use while another 23 percent reported using marijuana in the past month. In effect, early exposure to addictive substances can have lasting consequences in a teen’s life.

Families that embrace Christian principles may be particularly concerned with finding a teen rehab center that supports their beliefs. Fortunately, many Christian rehab centers specialize in helping teenagers overcome the effects of addiction in their lives.

While these programs do approach the treatment process from a Christian standpoint, the treatment process also incorporates evidenced-based approaches so teens receive the best of both worlds in terms of their spiritual development and treatment care.

Effects of Teen Drug Abuse

Christian Rehab

Christian rehab centers focus on spiritual development along with using traditional treatment methods.

Addictive substances all have the ability to alter the brain’s chemical system, a process that steadily deteriorates the brain’s functional capacity over time. For teenagers, these effects can have grave consequences in term of the critical developmental stages that take place during adolescence.

While it can be difficult to spot signs of drug abuse in your teen early on, with frequent drug use certain telltale signs start to take shape in his or her daily life. According to Mayo Clinic, the effects of teen drug abuse include:

  • Impulsive behavior
  • Disregard for house rules
  • Drastic changes in social group
  • Changes in physical appearance
  • Decline in school performance
  • Unusual risk taking

Considering how substance abuse problems tend to get worse with time, the sooner a teen gets needed treatment help the better his or her chances of a successful recovery.

Christian Rehab Center Treatment Approach

The Christian rehab center treatment approach views addiction as a means for escaping from feelings of spiritual emptiness. In this respect, the overall goal of this rehab center approach works to strengthen your teen’s spiritual foundation and use this base to build a drug-free life.

From a Christian rehab center standpoint, your teen’s relationship with God becomes an important component in the healing process, whereas traditional rehab centers may not incorporate one’s faith as a part of the treatment process.

In addition to spiritual development, Christian programs employ many of the same treatment interventions as standardized programs, including:

In effect, the principles of Christianity are incorporated within each of the above intervention methods.
