We help transform the lives of adolescents addicted to alcohol and other drugs or who have co-occurring mental disorders, and we provide hope for families who are affected by the consequences of drug use.
We will help lead patients to recovery and build long-term relationships with affected families so that, together, we are able to overcome adolescent drug and alcohol addiction.
What We Treat
We treat adolescents facing substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders, such as eating disorders.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows each day roughly 8,000 people aged 12 or older will use an illicit drug for the first time. The 2015 Monitoring the Future study revealed 10% and 8% of eighth-graders and 35% and 24% of high school seniors had abused alcohol and drugs, respectively, in the past month.
These statistics may be shocking and they cannot be ignored. That’s why Next Generation Village is committed to helping teen addicts recover from substance use disorders using scientific methods that have been proven to work.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, as many as six in 10 addicts also suffer from a mental health disorder, but less than 10% of that population will ever get treatment for both conditions.
At Next Generation Village, our treatment professionals know substance use disorders often trigger mental health disorders, and vice versa. We provide a full continuum of care to combat adolescent co-occurring disorders, addressing both parts of their dual diagnosis so they can make lasting strides toward recovery.
Of all the disorders that often co-occur with addiction, eating disorders can be one of the most nuanced and the most dangerous. Both conditions are inextricably linked — according to the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, almost 50% of people with eating disorders also abuse drugs or alcohol and roughly 35% of addicts also have an eating disorder.
Teens are especially at risk for developing eating disorders because of their changing bodies, social pressures from peers and unrealistic influence from Hollywood. Our treatment professionals and on-site chef are specially trained to help teens struggling with addiction and eating disorders overcome both of their conditions together.
Who We Treat
Treating adolescent addiction requires an elevated level of expertise and patient care, which we are proud to have established at Next Generation Village. Specifically, we work with teens aged 13 through 17. This population is the most vulnerable to developing substance abuse problems, and also has the most potential to recover. We believe working with this age group is essential because it gives teens their best shot at living a happy, healthy, sober adult life.
How We Help
Next Generation Village takes the guesswork out of recovery by using a scientifically-proven method — what we call the three-pronged approach — to treat teen addictions and ensure a long lasting recovery. The three prongs — therapeutic learning, cognitive healing and medical assistance — all contribute to well-rounded patient care, which we further individualize with our therapeutic experience.
All of our treatment programs are tailored to fit each patient because addiction isn’t one-size-fits-all, and neither is recovery.
This is where the three-pronged approach comes in — using this research-driven method has consistently matched patients to the level of care they need, proving following research and empirical data is a critical step in rehabilitation.
- Therapeutic learning involves teaching our patients about themselves, their addiction and how to live a sober life once they leave Next Generation Village.
- Cognitive healing is a holistic growth method we use to help patients address the “why” behind their addiction, including any emotional turmoil or co-occurring disorders they may be facing.
- Medical assistance eases our patient’s recovery so they can less time feeling sick and more time getting well.
