How Do I Find the Right Recovery Support for My Teenager?
- Going to therapy or meeting with a counselor that treats patients with addictions can point them in the direction of local groups that would benefit the teenager.
- Talking to a pastor about a biblical approach to recovery can help some teenagers who have already established good relationships in their church without worrying about condemnation.
- SMART Recovery offers a recovery program with meetings and a workbook that are specific to teenagers.
- Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous is open to people of all ages and seeing teenagers in those meeting have become more common in the past decade. AA and NA also have young people groups in larger cities that can be found by calling central office or checking online.
- Celebrate Recovery has an age limit that will help older teenagers in their time of recovery because there is an age requirement of 18 years old and older.
