Substance Abuse Treatment for Teens

Breaking Free from substance abuse problems often requires professional intervention. Therapy Associates provides teens and parents with the help needed to begin the process of healing and recovery.

Therapy Associates provides quality and affordable outpatient substance abuse treatment for teens and young adults in St. George and Southern Utah who have drug and/or alcohol issues of any sort.  There are three levels of substance abuse treatment available to meet the needs of struggling teens who are in the early stage of substance abuse as well as those youth who have become addicted or dependent.  The intensity of treatment is determined after completion of a Substance Abuse Assessment.

A teen in need of Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is required to attend and participate in groups four times per week as well as attend one individual or family session per week.  This includes a mandatory group with the client and their parents each week for a period of approximately 3 to 6 months.  Individual participation and performance is the determining factor in the length of treatment.  After completion of this part of treatment, youth are required to attend an aftercare group, which is once a week for approximately 3 months.  All clients are randomly drug tested at least once a week throughout their treatment.

A teen in need of General Outpatient Treatment will be required to attend and participate in groups at least two times per week as well as attend one individual or family session per week.  This includes a mandatory group with the youth and their parents each week for a period of approximately 3 to 6 months.  Individual participation and performance is the determining factor in the length of treatment.  After completion of this part of treatment, youth are required to attend an aftercare group, which is once a week for approximately 3 months.  All clients are randomly drug tested at least once a week throughout their treatment.

 

A teen in need of our Early Intervention Program will be required to attend at least one group per week as well as attend one individual or family session per week for a period of approximately 3 to 6 months.  After completion of the program aftercare will be determined on a case by case basis.

Benefits of participation in treatment include:

  • On-going dialogue about issues between teens and parents.

  • Accountability for staying clean and sober.

  • Feedback and support from other teens striving to stay clean.

  • Education regarding drug addiction.

  • Greater awareness of underlying issues.

  • Guidance from licensed therapists.

Group Sessions occur daily Monday through Thursday at 3:00 pm.

Parents are required to attend group with their child every Tuesday.
