Youth Treatment- A critical time for preventing alcohol and drug addiction

Early use of alcohol and drugs increases a person’s chances for more serious alcohol and drug abuse or addiction. Alcohol and drugs changes brain chemistry—lead to addiction and other serious problems critical to motivation, memory, learning, judgment, and behavior control.

Teens who abuse alcohol and other drugs often have family and school problems, poor academic performance, health-related problems (including mental health), and involvement with the juvenile justice system.

 

Adult Treatment

 Getting an addicted person to stop abusing alcohol or drugs is just one part of a long and complex recovery process. The goal of treatment is to return people to productive lives.

 

Therapy/counseling

Meetings between a consumer and a mental health professional designed to ease or reduce the symptoms associated with the consumer's mental health issues or associated behavioral problems.

Treatment plan development, review, and modification

The development of a plan to deliver specific mental health services based on the needs identified in the mental health assessment.

 

GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME

 

One of the most important things to remember about mental illness is this: people can and do recover. If you have a friend with mental illness, or if you have a mental illness yourself, remember that recovery is possible. Reach out to those around you with compassion, empathy, and understanding.

 

This program allows Spokane Tribal members, members of other Native American tribes and the community as a whole to learn and grow in a positive environment that encourages individual development.

 

“Before you can achieve anything in life, you need to envision it. What do you want out of life — who and where do you want to be? Don’t be afraid to reach for more than you think you can achieve.”
