When a substance problem develops into dependence or addiction, the teen will need to begin the recovery journey with a medically supervised detox and withdrawal. During the detox process, the body expels the remnants of the substance, and allows the teen to stabilize before beginning treatment.
What Is a Rehab for Teens?

What is Dual Diagnosis?
A dual diagnosis exists when a teen struggles with both a substance use disorder and a mental health challenge. Very often, the mental health issue occurs first, followed by the use of substances to help numb the emotional discomfort. Over time, the drug or alcohol use becomes problematic, resulting in a dual diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis treatment is customized to address the specific substance involved, as well as the diagnosed mental health disorder. Psychiatric services, such as medication and therapy, are integrated into the addiction recovery program.
