If your teenager is using drugs or alcohol, no matter how infrequently, it can be far more deep-rooted than you know. When a teen uses, they are making these choices because they are missing the esteem they need to value their life and their future.
When you need to get your teenager help, you need a program that can heal all aspects of their life. Holistic drug treatment centers on your child as a whole, not just as a user or an addict.
Holistic drug treatment focuses on healing all aspects of your child’s life. During treatment, the underlying issues that triggered or caused the usage are revealed and worked through. Whether they have low self-esteem or are battling depression, once the issues are revealed, the healing can begin.
At Clarity Way, we don’t believe in the one-size-fits-all program. Teens, especially, come to us with unique challenges and struggles. Once we work with your teen to determine the underlying issues, usage level, struggles, goals and interests, we can then create a unique program tailored exactly for him or her.
We offer a variety of therapies and treatments to create a program that heals their issues on all levels. Teenagers often benefit from art or music therapy, which provides another form of communication and way to explore feelings that talk therapy alone cannot. We also offer the opportunity for them to learn more about drug and alcohol use, to gain a greater understanding of how the choices they make today can limit their future.
Learning how to Spend Free Time
At Clarity Way, we offer a range of activities, from basketball to yoga, that can rekindle the spark your teenager had before with a healthy hobby. By connecting with an activity that brings them joy, one that is healthy and productive, your teen will not only be less likely to use in the future, he or she will gain much-needed self-esteem.
It is never too early to get your teenager help if you suspect drug, tobacco or alcohol use. What may be a small amount of experimentation now can quickly develop into life-changing drug addiction. At Clarity Way, we don’t just focus on the drug use; we focus on healing all aspects of your teen’s life, empowering them to choose healthy activities over substances.
