Our approach to teen and young adult drug treatment

The Insight Program has specialized in helping young people and teens through substance abuse and substance use disorder for over 40 years.

Many drug and alcohol rehab programs emphasize simply quitting drugs and alcohol for 30-90 days at a time. While this approach can work well for adults, it often falls flat with teens. While For teens to enter long-term recovery, their sobriety must be better than getting high!

Our expertise in young adult / teen drug and alcohol treatment allows us to recognize the various challenges that these age groups face. Whatever signs and symptoms you are seeing in your young person’s drug use, we can help!

Everything from our sober social events to our weekly treatment plans focus on allowing young people to be who they are, have fun sober, and connect with a positive sober peer group. Additionally, we recognize the unique and tough situation parents and family members of drug-using young people find themselves in. Therefore, our services also include support for parents and family members.

The Insight Program has been an amazing experience for our whole family. The support, tools and self confidence our young adult son has received is invaluable. He is doing outstanding in his recovery and enjoys the outpatient support and functions and has legitimate connections with many young adults and counselors. My husband and I have learned so much through the counselors and the parent support meetings. It's been very uplifting and encouraging listening to other like-minded parents going through these obstacles and it is so helpful for us knowing we aren't alone.
The Insight Program helped our young adult child and our family through a tough tough time. The experience of the staff is valuable and needed when navigating the horrors of addiction. We learned tools and skills needs to best assist and support our young adult child during recovery and ourselves as we properly support and heal. Our child is now living their best life and we are so grateful. It was not easy, but with the support of Insight we made it through.

I cannot say enough good things about this program. The counselors are excellent at what they do, and nothing else exists like this for teens and young adults in recovery. This is not a "finish rehab in 30 days, good luck seeya " program. It helps young people actually learn how to live a sober lifestyle and build a sober peer group. Insight has changed our daughter's life and put her on a new path in life, and has turned our family around as a whole.

This program is different and works well because it builds a community for the kids and young adults struggling with addiction. Their parents are also provided a community. Through these avenues, The Insight program fosters peer role models which helps the those dealing with addition acquire new friends and opportunities to learn different coping strategies. The support group for the parents is also an integral part of recovering from addiction. Through the parent support group parents connect with other parents who have been on this journey before them and find support. Additionally the program offers ongoing support over a 2 year period which allows recovery to gain traction promoting real change.

The Insight Program provided a second chance for my teenage son. He is now clean and sober for almost 9 months. Nothing is easy along the way but the program provides much-needed meaningful connections and network for him to reply on when he needs guidance, encouragement and acceptance. The program not only provides help for the children but also parents for us to grow in parallel. Skills of living with an addict child are learned and practiced. The weekly parent meeting, Step study, parent phone list, and numerous events help tremendously in deepening the connections and to learn how to not only hold up well with grace in challenging life events but thrive. The Insight Program is one of a kind. Many methods are seemingly against common intuition but are proven highly efficient in saving children with addictions. “We walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7). The Insight Program is godsend.
