Substance abuse and addiction impact all demographics in our nation. However, teens face particularly difficult challenges. Thanks to peer and societal pressures, teenagers can easily fall prey to various dangerous substances. For this reason, Memphis Recovery Centers provides a residential youth treatment program for 13–17-year-old adolescents.
About Our Youth Treatment Program
MRC’s youth facility has its own campus, consisting of two historic homes with 20 beds. While our staff monitors teens 24-7, the goal isn’t to create a rigid environment. Our compassionate professionals are in-tune with the needs of that demographic. Through comprehensive therapy and empathetic support, our staff foster a sense of community and belonging for the youth we serve.
What Does Our Youth Treatment Program Include?
MRC provides youth-focused addiction treatment approaches, which include:
- Individual counseling
- Group and family therapy
- Life skills training
- Anger management classes
- Drug and alcohol education classes for patients and family
- Music and art therapy
- In-house school (Transitions Learning Center)
- A broad spectrum of assessments and information for parents and involved family.
Dual Diagnosis and Trauma Therapy
By itself, overcoming addiction can be difficult. However, when teens have co-occurring mental health issues, the process can become complicated. Conditions like anxiety and depression can make recovery seem impossible. Dual diagnosis and trauma therapy can address those issues and clear those roadblocks to recovery.
Transitions Learning Center
MRC operates an in-house school for youth in treatment. The school, known as Transitions Learning Center (TLC), provides a traditional classroom setting with a low patient-staff ratio that enables our youth to excel in an academic environment. MRC communicates directly with outside public and private schools and other primary treatment providers to offer an added resource for balancing treatment planning and academics.
Continuing our patients’ education not only helps bring students up to speed, but also prevents interruption of their academic objectives.
The Path to a Brighter Future Starts Here
As a non-profit addiction treatment center, MRC prides itself on offering care to all those who need it, regardless of social or economic status. In addition to accepting various health insurance providers, we also offer private pay options. No matter the situation, we don’t want a financial burden to scare you away from getting the help you need.
