Substance Abuse and Dual Diagnosis Counseling for Teens

The overall goal of the adolescent substance abuse programs is to help teenagers and their families develop the skills they need to overcome the problems associated with substance abuse. Teenagers and their families will learn about the nature of addiction and its impact on family systems. They will also learn the tools they need to resolve problems. manage feelings and behaviors effectively, and develop a lasting sobriety. The programs are designed to be intensive and to supplement the individual and family therapy that a client may already be receiving. Treatment is completely individualized and focuses on the issues that matter most to the teenager and his/her family. Additionally, because the programs are scheduled during after school hours, teenagers are able to remain in their own school throughout the treatment process. The Adolescent programs serve adolescents from ages 13 to 18. Some of the areas that are addressed within our program include:

  • Addictions
    • Alcoholism
    • Drug Abuse
    • Sex
    • Technology

Partial Day Program for Adolescents

This is an after school program that focuses on helping teenagers deal with a substance abuse and mental health issues. The program uses a systemic approach that helps teenagers resolve issues both within themselves and within their families. The initial groups each day are designed to give teenagers a chance to identify the causes of their emotional and behavioral struggles and then learn the skills they need to cope effectively and create a lasting sobriety.

In the evening, parents join the teenagers to address the conflicts and communication issues within the family and to learn about the disease concept of addiction. These groups are designed so that parents and primary care givers can ensure that their teenagers deal with the issues that they are struggling with at home. These groups focus on effective parenting strategies, conflict resolution strategies, communication skills, and problem solving skills within the family. The groups also allow families to work through the conflicts that are occurring within the home and to develop the skills they need to resolve conflicts in the future. In addition, all teenagers are evaluated by a psychiatrist and are provided medication management as needed.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents

The Intensive Outpatient Program is a half-day program that is designed to help teenagers deal with a variety of issues revolving around their substance abuse and behavioral problems. The program is a less intensive option to the Partial Day Program and is designed to help teenagers and their families continue to develop the skills they need to cope with life once they leave New Dimensions. Teenagers have the option of attending the afternoon or evening sessions, based on the individualized treatment plan that is created with the treatment team.

Atmosphere in the Program

The program offers a casual, comfortable and confidential atmosphere. The daily groups offer individuals a safe environment to explore difficult life issues while receiving support from the staff and other group members. In addition, staff is available throughout the program day when patients have questions or need support.

Most of the treatment team offices are located in close proximity to the adolescent group room. The patients, families, and staff members function together as a community. The open group process provides a forum for patients and families to develop strong connections with each other, creating a healing group environment. These connections frequently allow patients and families to work through those issues that they most need to resolve. For some patients and families, the bonds they create can last a lifetime.
