Substance abuse counselors can help troubled teens that get sent to residential treatment centers or therapeutic boarding schools by helping the troubled teens who suffer from drug or substance abuse to find other ways of coping with their problems and ways to remain sober upon returning home. For more information on how substance abuse counselors can help troubled teens please contact Zion’s Educational System by calling 866-471-8579.
Troubled teens struggle with drug and substance abuse for many reasons; some to cover past trauma and they want to dull their pain, some feel pressured to abuse drugs or substances to feel accepted, and others are exposed to it at an early age and choose to continue on the path that they were shown. Substance abuse counselors help troubled teens to verify what reasons they started, and to find ways to cope with their problems instead of abusing drugs.
Emotions are buried deep when a troubled teen abuse drugs and substances; the substance abuse counselors help to get through the effects of the drugs and to the underlying problems that caused the troubled teen to abuse drugs and substances in the first place. There are multiple forms of therapy that the troubled teen can attend while at residential treatment centers or therapeutic boarding schools.
Equine therapy is a very common form of therapy that substance abuse counselors use to help reach into the emotions of the troubled teen struggling with drug and substance abuse. Art therapy, music therapy, and individual and group therapy sessions are also used by substance abuse counselors to help the troubled teen to come to terms with their emotions and what they are feeling. The therapy provided at residential treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools is beneficial to troubled teens who don’t know how to process and handle their emotions.
