Adolescent Outpatient Counseling

Call for a free assessment 847-742-3545

This program is for adolescents who have progressed past experimental use and are abusing or possibly dependent on alcohol and/or another drug. There begins to be a pattern of use and the adolescent seeks the high or altered mood to cope or escape. Eventually, there is a preoccupation with the mood change.

Consequences begin to increase and may include health problems, falling grades, family conflict, and/or involvement with the judicial system. Tolerance increases so that the adolescent must use more and more of the drug to get the same effect.

Renz Center clinicians are experienced in using evidence-based substance abuse treatment models individual, and family counseling sessions. Length of treatment is variable based on progress and participation of the young person and the severity of his/her substance use. As with all our treatment programs, we encourage as much family involvement as possible. We refer all parents/caretakers to our Family Program so that they can learn what the signs and symptoms of substance abuse are, how to set limits and boundaries, open lines of communication, and how their loved one's use has affected them.
