Inspirations Teen Rehab provides gender
specific- boys drug abuse treatment and boy’s behavior
therapy, in a nurturing and therapeutic environment. Inspirations
Teen Boy’s Addiction Treatment Program
provides opportunities for boys to share their experiences
in gender specific therapeutic groups, where each boy can
process male issues, experiences, and perceptions relative
to each teen’s life. The number of boys using or abusing
drugs and alcohol is equal to teen girl’s drug use and
drug abuse. Boys are also smoking cigarettes as much as girls.
Yet, the issues boys bring to teen therapy and teen drug abuse
treatment are often different than as with teenage girls.
Inspirations Teen Rehab for boys also provides
gender specific High
School Education. In providing gender specific education,
Inspirations has witnessed an increase in boy’s ability
to focus on academic studies, once female attention or distraction
is removed. Although it is necessary for boys and girls to
learn to interact appropriately with each other, Inspirations
Teen Drug and Alcohol Rehab limits their involvement to specific
activities, which are monitored and structured.
Inspirations Teen Rehab for boys also provides tutoring, allowing
individual teens to improve in academic areas in which the
teen shows signs of struggle. Inspirations teen addicton
treatment center also provides “Online”
education for additional program and academic opportunities,
including SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) preparation and early
college course classes.
Studies have shown that boys typically use and abuse different
types of drugs than girls. Boys will tend to use marijuana
and escalate to illegal drugs and binge drink. Girls will
typically use illicit (prescription)
drugs. However, males and females had similar rates of past
month (February 2008) nonmedical use (abuse) of psychotherapeutic
drugs (2.6 and 2.4 percent, respectively), pain relievers
(2.0 and 1.8 percent), tranquilizers (0.7 and 0.8 percent),
stimulants (0.4 percent for both), methamphetamine (0.1 percent
for both), and sedatives (0.1 percent for both). Boys are
more likely to exceed girls drug
abuse in many categories. These statistics
are located on the web: oas.samhsa.gov.
According to the study conducted by the Partnership for a
Drug Free America, teenage boys continue to use illegal drugs
more often than they do prescription drugs. Teenage girls
are more likely to experiment with prescription drugs, according
to the study. Among both male and female teens, there is a
dangerous misconception that using prescribed medication to
get high is safer than using illegal drugs.
There is no specific formula or predictor for pre-determining
boy’s or girls’ specific drug of choice or the
rate at which teen drug use or teen drug abuse will escalate.
Genetics, history, mental health, and personality are traits
that combined with teen
drug abuse, can create any number of results.
At Inspirations Teen Rehab, each teenage
boy is provided the time and opportunity to grow in mind,
body and spirit, focusing on goals and the psychological tools
and life tools needed to reach his goals.
