High School Dropouts More Likely to Have Drug and Alcohol Abuse Problems

West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 15, 2013

High school dropouts tend to have more time on their hands. Many times, using and abusing drugs or alcohol is one way they get involved with other activities. Unfortunately, these dropouts suffer serious life ramifications for their choices.

According to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, youth in the 12th-grade age range (16-18 years old) are using illicit drugs at a higher rate than those who are in school (31.4 percent versus 15.3 percent). This age group also has a higher level of smokers than those in school (56.8 percent versus 22.4 percent).

When adolescents don’t have structure or guidance in their lives, they tend to lose focus and fall into trouble. Recovery Associates, through its Adolescent Track, can get these teens back on a safer, sober road. The Adolescent Track is filled with solid counselors and therapists who have many years of working in the addiction field behind their wisdom. Teens that have been off course in life can get back on and stop their substance abuse behavior.

Recovery Associates is a drug and alcohol treatment center that provides a variety of programs and services for men, women and teens struggling with chemical dependency issues. At the core of their philosophy is the belief that addiction is a treatable illness. Their addiction treatment experience has shown that anyone is capable of achieving lasting recovery and physical, mental and spiritual freedom from the disease of addiction.

Their unique program offers different tracks: a Traditional Track, an Expressive Therapies Track, Teen Rehab Track, and a Christian Rehab Track. They believe that by utilizing a variety of therapies, they can better assist their clients in finding their own individualized path to recovery. Their focus is on the underlying issues that have led to the addictive behaviors and destructive patterns.

Recovery Associates’ multidisciplinary team is made up of a Board Certified Addictions Psychiatrist, Master’s Level Therapists and Certified Addictions Counselors. They are passionate about recovery and helping individuals and families begin the healing process.
