This page is written to provide parents with a sense of relief in knowing there is help for you and your teen. It is written to remind you, the parent, that your teen has reached a point in life where choices are made that you may not always indorse or control. Teen drug and alcohol abuse and behavioral problems are international. Teens have a life outside of the family unit that often prevents a parent from their previous ability to protect their child, direct their child’s daily activities, and manage their child’s choice of friends. It is a profound time for parents and teens. However, you are still the parent, legal guardian and legal representative of your teenager, holding the ability to make the ultimate authoritative decisions regarding the direction of your teenager’s immediate future. This page is written to empower you to make the decisions that you see fit to best protect and guide your teenager through this journey of teenage years, entering young adulthood. Behavior and drug use or drug abuse rather in US, Canada, or the Virgin Islands can lead to explosive and life changing experiences for a teen and family.
Choosing an appropriate residential facility, drug and alchol rehab in the Virgin Islands is a difficult task. Keep in mind that by choosing Inspirations Teen Rehab you are choosing a nurturing, educating, and therapeutic residential program for your teen. We are not a locked-down psychiatric facility. We are not a juvenile offender program with boot-camp mentality. Inspirations Teen Rehab holds the belief that the teens attending Inspirations Teen Rehab are good teens, making poor choices at this time in their life. Teen drug use and teen drug abuse are an unfortunate issue for today’s teens, often a result of inappropriate coping skills, lack of accountability, and attempts to self-medicate. Inspirations will work with you and your teen to develop teenage coping and decision making skills, a program of accountability, and a daily life without the use of substances and impairment. Teens will re-learn the art and joy of living, being a part of a family and experiencing this limited time in adolescence. Call us with any questions.
