Getting your struggling teen professional help is a must when she or he is facing stimulant or opioid misuse. While recognizing the problem is the first step, it’s also important to get your teen the right services to overcome possible addiction and get back on the road to a thriving life.
At the Ashland County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (ACCADA), we are committed to helping teens and their families through comprehensive treatment and prevention services and resources. Some of our services include the following.
If your teen is currently dealing with addiction or substance misuse, then outpatient recovery services are often the first step. These can include individual counseling, group counseling, case management, peer support groups, and assistance with housing, jobs, legal matters and social services. We typically begin by performing an initial assessment to determine the best course of treatment for your teen.
Often, intensive treatment is necessary to help a teen overcome addiction to opioid or stimulants. Inpatient therapy offers a safe, inclusive environment in which your child can develop new habits, get the treatment they need, and then transition into the world.
Our organization offers a number of services designed to prevent misuse. These include programs like:
