Special youth programs are available for specialized recovery needs. Youths 12-17 frequently turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate treatable mental disorders. Where it is estimated that 10% of the U.S. population is pre-disposed to alcohol abuse it is also estimated that 20 percent of adolescents in the country suffer from a serious mental disorder that inhibits their ability to function.
Studies have proven that there is a correlation between teenage drug use and mental disorders, with 90 percent of suicides involving substance abuse. Fortunately there are now Youth Programs that offer treatment to adolescent males and females between 12 and 17 for addiction, mental health and co-occurring conditions.
After a thorough assessment of each teen, we can offer a customized youth program in order to best treat them for their specific problem.

I did not know where to go when I needed help for my drug and alcohol problems. I had medical insurance but it was too confusing to figure out if addiction treatment was covered. Feeling all alone, I decided to quit on my own, and I almost died. I don’t want anyone to go through what I did. That is why I created 800 Recovery Hub.
