About Teen Addiction Treatment
Teen Addiction Therapy Services

Addiction Therapy Services

Addiction therapy encompasses the application of specialized skills to support individuals struggling with addictions, as well as their families and friends, in finding resolution and healing. It involves delving into the nature of the disease and its consequences, exploring attitudes and emotions, considering alternative solutions, and making informed decisions that are directly relevant to addiction.

Addiction counseling encompasses various essential components, including evaluation and assessment, treatment planning, crisis intervention, referral services, maintaining records, and seeking clinical consultation, all specifically tailored to address addiction-related issues.

The primary focus of addiction therapy is to provide comprehensive support and guidance to individuals, empowering them to overcome their addictions and achieve long-term recovery.

Outpatient Services

Our outpatient services provide a professional and caring approach to support teenagers in their journey towards recovery and well-being. Our teen outpatient program is tailored to meet the unique clinical needs and personal goals of each individual, as well as the goals of their family.

The duration and frequency of the outpatient care are determined based on a comprehensive assessment conducted by the adolescent’s treatment team. We take into account their specific clinical requirements and collaborate closely with the family to develop a discharge plan that ensures a smooth transition from outpatient programming.

In addition, our teen outpatient program seamlessly integrates with our continuing care program. This allows us to provide ongoing support to clients and families through convenient channels such as text messaging and live video sessions. We understand the importance of maintaining connection and assistance beyond the structured outpatient sessions, and our team is dedicated to providing continuous care to facilitate long-term success.

Through our professional and caring outpatient services, we aim to empower teenagers and their families with the necessary resources and guidance for sustained recovery. At OC Teen Addiction Center, we are committed to helping adolescents achieve their goals, fostering resilience, and supporting them in their journey towards a healthier and brighter future.
