Our Vision is that everyone in need of treatment for chemical dependency receives the compassion and respect that they deserve while being offered the best clinical care available.
Graduating high school, starting college, and working your first job is a time of many changes. Young adults become independent for the first time in their lives. For many, without the restrictions and guidance they are used to, it can be difficult to maintain healthy habits. Students may be tempted to use their newfound freedom in unproductive and unhealthy ways like staying up late, staying home instead of going to class, and even drinking and partying. College students and young adults also have greater access to drugs today than in the past. With this availability comes a greater risk of young adults developing addictive behaviors during their college years.
At Coalition Recovery, we offer a young adults rehab program and student rehab program specifically designed for the unique challenges young adults face. Whether you or a loved one are struggling with alcohol, prescription drugs, or another type of substance use disorder, our treatment program can help. Contact Coalition Recovery at 888.707.2873 to learn more.
There are a few reasons why some individuals might turn to drug or alcohol abuse during the first few years of adulthood. Newfound independence comes with a lot of new and exciting possibilities, but with it comes great responsibility. In order to learn what these responsible actions are, young adults might have to learn from our actions. For instance, they might start to learn that although they are having fun partying every weekend, their grades or job performances are struggling at its expense. The hope is that young adults learn early the importance of their decisions: partying and socializing is fleeting fun but the effects of academics carry far beyond their years in college.
Here at Coalition Recovery, we have made it our mission to help anyone who is willing to receive help for their substance use disorders. These can include addictions to:
While we are open to treating anyone, our young adults rehab program and team are specialized to help those who have just graduated or are between the ages of 18 and 30. By focusing on this population, we have created a truly unique treatment environment tailored to help young adults live a life of recovery and provide them with the necessary tools to stay sober during these risky years.
Coalition Recovery offers dual diagnosis treatment, meaning we are able to handle co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Many young adults use alcohol and drugs to cope with the constant stressors faced in school and at work. Sometimes, these stressors can be a part of a larger problem like anxiety or depression. By treating both the substance use disorder alongside other mental health issues like depression, anxiety, or trauma, we are able to fully treat the individual as a whole. Without the proper treatment of these common mental health concerns, you cannot fully treat addiction.
Common mental health concerns for college students and young adults include anxiety, depression, and ADHD. Students will be able to meet regularly with our psychiatrist, Dr. Barnett. Dr. Barnett is board-certified in addiction, general, forensic, and geriatric psychiatry. She has years of experience working with adolescents and young adults. She will be able to map out each student’s biopsychosocial attributes to determine if medication is necessary. Understanding the nature of addiction, she can prescribe medications that will not only help them with their mental health but provide medication options that are non-abusive.
Young adults often face different kinds of stressors than they are used to. These can range from academic stress to social stress. Evidence-based therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) help people develop healthier ways to cope with stress by reframing their thinking into a more productive manner. Clients will also meet regularly with their respected therapist for private individualized sessions. It is during these sessions that our therapists can dig deep into understanding who they are, what makes them tick, and the necessary process to help them overcome their addiction. It is through evidence-based therapies like CBT that young adults can truly help build confidence and self-resilience for long-term success.
