Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Services
The interaction between chemicals from alcohol and drugs on an adolescent's brain can delay and hinder development, which is why it's important to approach treatment with adolescents differently than we do with adults. At this age, adolescents are oftentimes working to find a sense of self, which is why our focus is on developmental process and peer focused interventions, as well as other environmental factors contributing to substance use.
Seasons' Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Services utilize various modalities to help clients through the therapeutic process of healing and recovery. These include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Brief Intervention/Motivational Interviewing
- Contingency Management Reinforcement
- Interpersonal Process Therapy
- Behavioral Therapies
In addition to individual therapy, outpatient services are also provided as a family-based approach. Seasons' substance use disorder therapists are educated at Bachelors and Masters levels in psychology, social work or other related fields. All therapists are certified or eligible for certification through the Iowa Board of Substance Abuse Certification.
Adolescents can be connected to services through self-referral, referral from their parents, school counselors, probation officers, other providers, hospitals, or if it is court ordered. Please give us a call at 1-800-242-5101 if you or someone you know would benefit from these services.
