Factors to Consider When Choosing a Teen Rehabilitation Center
When making such a big decision, there are many factors to consider. At a glance, families should take into account all of the following criteria:
- Team qualifications and licensing
- Appropriateness of programs for their teen
- Family support and involvement
- Aftercare programs
- Schooling accommodations
There are many more points to consider beyond this list to find the right fit. Here is a more detailed view of the points that will most strongly influence your decision.
Comprehensive Treatment Programs
Becoming a resident of a residential teen rehabilitation center is a move towards a more comprehensive approach to treatment. These centers differ from external counseling or other therapies in that the resident is fully immersed. A center must account for all aspects of a youth’s treatment and recovery to ensure effective and long-lasting results.
Your teen should have access to around-the-clock support at the center. There should be access to teenage health counseling from trained professionals. Careful scheduling and planning should provide residents with opportunities for healthy and safe activities throughout the day within their peer groups and under qualified supervision.
Professional Evaluations of Teen Health and Wellness
The best centers provide structured, ongoing evaluations and assessments of their residents’ continuing teen health and wellness. These evaluations are vital to determining the success of treatment programs and identifying when changes are necessary. Assessments should cover psychological, social, and medical factors.
When choosing a teen rehabilitation center, ask about their evaluation structure. Do they run evidence-based evaluations, do they track and monitor progress over time? Assessments at treatment centers should follow industry standards by using assessments with proven effectiveness in real-world applications.
Demographic Specific Programs and Treatment
There are many different types of rehabilitation centers out there, generally targeting specific age groups and genders. Centers should focus on the programs and activities best suited to their individual demographics. There is no generic solution to any aspect of treatment, from teenage health counseling to recreational activities.
Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center chooses dual diagnosis treatment programs that give the best results for our adolescent boy residents. This gives them an environment where they can better engage in healthy social activities and teenage self-care. Fostering the appropriate culture for residents can be a crucial factor in improving outcomes.
Your Teen Needs Real Professionals
Teen rehabilitations are not merely a place for your teen to stay while under professional supervision and away from negative influences. They provide specialized mental health treatments. As such, you need to choose a center with a professionally trained team and the appropriate licenses to provide mental health and substance abuse treatments.
Providing teen health counseling and establishing teenage self-care regimens in residents is not a simple task. Trained professionals use tested techniques and methods from psychology and sociology to give residents the best possible outcomes. When choosing a center for your teen, a professionally trained team is essential for the best results.
