Adolescent Chemical Dependency Detox

We offer specialized treatment options to meet the unique needs of each patient with drug, alcohol or other additional issues. Based on our philosophy that chemical dependency is a treatable disease, our program includes outstanding medical and nursing care, individual and group counseling and family education.

Phases of Treatment

Treatment at Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital may involve these three phases:

  1. Evaluation and Assessment: Treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation that becomes the foundation for an individual’s personal treatment plan. We then provide intervention counseling for the patient and family to enable them to get the maximum benefit from the program. After an assessment, a decision will be made about what type of treatment is most appropriate, inpatient or intensive outpatient. The therapist helps identify specific goals and interventions needed to address a patient’s specific needs.
  2. Rehabilitation: This is the main phase of treatment. It involves completion of the assessment and implementation of a treatment plan which generally includes group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy and activity therapy. A daily schedule includes focused goal-setting, group therapy and educational groups in which individuals address the issues that have disrupted their lives. A patient may be assigned to a special program to deal with trauma resolution or even suicide intervention.
  3. Continuing Care: Provides individualized referrals to community programs in your area to maintain recovery.

Dual Diagnosis

Sometimes addiction to alcohol or drugs is accompanied by a secondary, but significant, condition that may affect the positive outcome of treatment for alcohol other substances.

Some of the conditions that lead to a dual diagnosis (co-occurring disorders) include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood Instability
  • Post-traumatic stress

At Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital, we know that drug and alcohol addiction is not a character deficiency or moral weakness. It is a progressive, potentially fatal disease that has a long-term emotional and physical impact on the individual and the entire family. When it is accompanied by other mental health problems, it is important to treat both. At least 30 percent of the people with alcohol and/or drug addiction also have emotional disorders. Addictive behaviors are more likely to continue unless these disorders are recognized and treated.

Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital has decades of experience dealing with psychiatric illness and substance addictions. Our objective is to return an individual to his or her daily routine as soon as possible.
