Drug Rehab Counseling for Teens

New Dawn’s Adolescent Intensive Outpatient (AIOP) and Partial Hospitalization (PHP) program is the only one of its kind in the Sacramento area. We offer structured drug and alcohol counseling for teens, family therapy and relapse prevention classes. Drug rehab counseling for teens is available up to four nights per week, with an average program length of between 8 and 12 weeks.

If you are looking for drug rehab counseling for teens, and are considering residential treatment, contact us today. We can schedule a private consultation and assessment at your convenience, and free of charge. If our program cannot provide enough counseling and support, we have worked with many excellent residential programs.  After the assessment, we will offer you an unbiased referral list that is specific to your teenager’s unique needs.

Drug Rehab Counseling for Teens – Treatment Approach

Our treatment philosophy is based on the bio-psycho-social model of addiction. According to this widely accepted approach to treating addiction, a mix of various biological, psychological, and social factors can play a role in contributing to one’s mental and behavioral functioning. Therefore effective treatment requires customized, patient-centered individual counseling that is based on the unique therapeutic needs of each teenager. In order for drug rehab counseling for teens to make a lasting impression that will lead to positive change, the root underlying causes that may have lead to the addictive behaviors are also discussed in group and individual therapy sessions.

Programs Offered

Services include individual and group counseling, weekly parent groups, family therapy, recreational therapy and weekly aftercare groups. The curriculum focuses on the issues that most often contribute to a teenager’s drug or alcohol abuse. Some of the topics that are covered include the following:

  • emotions and drug use
  • cravings and urges
  • healthy living
  • managing life’s difficulties
  • coping skill development
  • building self-esteem
  • Changing Distorted Thinking
  • developing healthy boundaries
  • relapse prevention
