In most cases, addiction teen treatment center settings have been almost exclusively based on 12 Step programming. Often times, clients with different addictive behaviors have often been treated in a similar manner, using with the same approach. When this happens, girls with addictive self-harming behaviors, or compulsive social media use are being treated in the same groups as substance abusers though they are suffering from different addictive behaviors.
While 12 Step programming is valuable, helpful, and widely used for helping individuals who are struggling with addictions, there are other valid approaches that are very effective as well. Solstice East believes in using a variety of approaches to treat addictive behaviors, which is one of the many aspects that makes us a leading teen treatment center.
In our teen treatment center, we have found this to be more effective in the following ways:
• We are able to successfully engage more clients in their own recovery
• It results in a higher percentage of positive, long-term outcomes.
