Dallas substance abuse treatment for Teens Suffering From A Dual Diagnosis
Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment Therapies Designed To Treat Adolescent & Teenage Substance Use Disorders
Supporting Teens With Substance Abuse Challenges And A Dual Diagnosis Who May Need Drug Rehab
Dual Diagnosis treatment is for teens struggling with substance use including drug & alcohol addiction and/or teens who have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder while also experiencing mental health challenges. Effective treatment must be an individualized approach that meets patients where they are on the recovery spectrum, helps patients establish and reach treatment goals, and provides a holistic, supportive, and safe treatment environment that helps patients establish lasting change.
Adolescent substance abuse and Substance Use Disorders are challenging obstacles for teens and their family members. Between social peer pressure, real-life stressors, and potential mental health concerns, the weight is often too great to bear alone.
There is a future free from drug and alcohol use. There is a path to safe recovery.
Seeking addiction treatment from a reliable and teen-focused treatment center is the first step toward healing. Choosing to heal is what allows you and your teen to design their future with intention. At BasePoint Academy, our Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient treatment process is weighted for lasting recovery and the best possible patient outcomes for Dallas/Fort Worth area teens.
What Is A Dual Diagnosis?
What Is A Substance Use Disorder?
A Substance Use Disorder is a mental health condition that leads to the unhealthy use of an illicit drug, alcohol, or prescription painkillers. An addiction disorder can place teens at increased risk of drug addiction, alcohol addiction, or other substance addiction and their serious side effects.
These disorders and addictions can lead to reduced performance in school, erratic or unstable behavior, emotional outbursts, and broken relationships due to substance use. If left untreated, teen patients can develop a tolerance to the substance, which can lead to increased dosages, drinking alcohol more frequently, and illicit drug or medication mixing to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
How To Tell If Your Dallas Teen Has a Substance Use Disorder and may need Drug Rehab or our substance abuse treatment program.
Each patient’s experience will be unique, but there are some common warning signs associated with teens struggling with Substance Use Disorder.
If their grades suddenly drop or they’re not doing as well as they once were in school, or they’re no longer spending time with old friends or enjoying activities they once found enjoyable, it might be time to find out why by checking with your teen and/or seeking guidance from a professional.
If they’re displaying actively unhealthy or risky behaviors, such as fighting or unusual anger outbursts, this might be a warning sign that your teen is engaging in substance use.
If the teen is taking prescription painkillers prescribed by their physician for a legitimate reason, it can be more difficult to spot the warning signs. Look for increased dosage, premature refill requests, or withdrawal symptoms when going without the substance.
