In addition to our therapeutic addiction treatment program,
our adolescent rehab provides a unique Sober
Life, Sober Choices Program. Sober Life, Sober Choices occurs
during the Residential hours. Residential living is a critical
component for Teen Drug Abuse and Teen
Addiction Treatment, as it fosters independence,
responsibility, and accountability. Inspirations' Residences
are created to simulate a home environment with shared living,
kitchen, family room, flat screen television, and outdoor
Sober Life, Sober Choices is a "Life Skills" Program,
focusing on daily life skills, developing sober choices, creating
a sober life environment, and learning how to have sober fun.
During Inspirations' Life Skills Program, teens learn, practice
and share, household tasks such as: cleaning, meal planning,
meal preparation and washing their laundry. Our goal with
the Life Skills Program is not only to teach our teens how
to perform daily living skills but also to encourage personal
accountability and to help teens develop a team approach to
living within the context of a family. By involving our teens
in household tasks, we are providing them with an opportunity
for communication, problem solving, role modeling, and team
Replacing Time Once Spent Making
Negative Choices with Positive Fun Choices
Teaching our teens to have "Sober" fun without drugs
and alcohol is an important step in our adolescent
substance abuse therapy and recovery process. Inspirations'
approach to teen drug treatment and teen
therapy through sports and recreational activities, provides
our teens with the opportunity to rekindle or learn new skills,
develop physical fitness,and expand their minds with new experiences.
Since exercise triggers the brain’s natural "feel
good" (endorphin) chemical, enjoyable physical activities
are encouraged for lifelong recovery from substance
use, substance abuse, or addiction. Inspirations'
teens in recovery enjoy sports and recreational therapy activities
• Ice Skating
• Movie Night
• Seasonal Community Activities
To complete our SOBER FUN PROGRAM , our
teens in recovery participate in cultural
art events and in local
environmental activities. Inspirations' teens in recovery
can enjoy our environmental educational trips which are provided
through community classes, seminars, workshops, field trips,
interpretive displays, visual presentations and research.Some
of our educational trips include a day at the fire station,
natural disaster and hurricane preparedness shelter demonstrations,
beach preservation and natural sea life protection.
VOLUNTEER IN TEEN
Drug use, drug abuse, and addiction are often characterized
by selfishness and a lack of accountability to others. Therefore,
Inspirations' incorporated an opportunity for teens to develop
a sense of community, accountability, and unity through volunteering.
An important part of Inspirations’ teen drug
rehab program is our volunteering services
performed by our teens in recovery. By encouraging
our teens to help our community through local community services
we are fostering accountability and self esteem, which is
the foundation for "giving back" and awareness of
our global position.
Each community volunteer activity is guided by Inspirations'
adult staff and occurs in a structured environment with adult
supervision. Some volunteer opportunities at our teen
drug rehab include packing and distributing food
at the food bank, packing food for the homeless, and working
at the animal shelter.
"SOBER LIFE, SOBER CHOICES is an ongoing,
evolving skill, one in which Inspirations encourages each
teen to challenge themselves, embark upon and incorporate
in a daily life recovery program."
