About Young Adult Rehab Centers
Sober College in Los Angeles, for example, offers one treatment program exclusively for women in order to help address womenâ€™s issues as well as one exclusively for men in order to provide an environment in which they feel comfortable being honest with themselves and having healthier relationships with themselves. They also have a program for addictions to videogames and works to help those clients develop healthier relationships with videogames and technology. They also offer a program called Post Wilderness, which assists young adults from very rural or wild areas to getting back to living a healthy, sober life as well as teaching them the skills they need to cope in the mainstream world.
Since 18 is currently considered to be the age of reaching adulthood, when many people hear the term, â€œyoung adult treatment centersâ€, they may think it means that itâ€™s catered for those between the ages of 18 and 40. In reality, young adult treatment centers take in clients from as young as 12. Especially in areas where drugs are super-easy to access, if theyâ€™re stored in the house or if thatâ€™s the sort of life that the family lives, itâ€™s quite easy for even young children to become addicted. Drew Barrymore is a celebrity example of that. She has publicly admitted to having become addicted to pot by the age of only eight and was released from rehab at age 14.
Young adult rehab centers hold various programs for the young adults. These include the 12-step program or non, outdoor activities, psychiatric assistance, group therapy, spiritual counseling, one-on-one sessions. Young adults still retain a lot of energy and those who have been struggling with addictions need to be taught healthy outlets of releasing it. As a result, those rehab centers hire only the best and highly trained professionals to work with their young adult clientele. Itâ€™s also no secret that the culture of adolescence and young adulthood is far different from what it used to be, say back in the 1940â€™s, and these rehab centers strive to work with that culture.
