Treatment forTEEN ADDICTION DISORDER

Begin from home: Once parents become aware of their teen’s addiction to drugs or alcohol, it is recommended that they stay composed. Anger directed at the teenager may cause the teen to go into lockdown and become non-communicative. With calm, love and open communication the parents and teenager can then begin seeking the best therapeutic help to address the teen addiction disorder.

Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA): This method helps adolescents to manage their addiction disorder. They are counseled to abstain from the drugs and lead a better social life with their families and friends. The therapist selects options out of 17 A-CRA recommended measures to resolve the underlying issues by increasing teen’s participation in social and outdoor activities.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT emphasizes a theory of behavioral learning to solve teen addiction disorders. This method applies various strategies that include helping a teen addict to cope with the drug issues and its withdrawal symptoms. Through CBT, the adolescent becomes more aware of the risks and negative results of the addiction. The teenagers and their families are educated to exercise self control and anger management techniques instead of resorting to the drugs/alcohol as an easy way out.
