As a part of our treatment program teens attend group and individual therapeutic sessions daily in our Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center. Teens have the opportunity to work on coping skills, accountability, respect, morals and ethics, stress management, anger management, solution oriented thinking and planning, and various therapeutic modalities.
Individual treatment plans are created, addressing the individual needs of each teen and working with individual issues in private/individual sessions.
Inspirations for Youth and Families (IYF) is however also known for its very unique approach to teen addiction treatment. Our drug rehab offers many alternative therapies to aid in our clients’ recovery. We have an array of additional therapy options for our clients to enjoy such as art, music and yoga therapy.
During one of our sessions our teens were asked how they felt about being brought to drug rehab and what they hope to learn from their stay here. Being open about this topic gave way for our girls to create a poem they hope will inspire themselves and others suffering from addiction.
Some of our teens were inspired to create a poem about their experience here at Inspirations. Our teens got together to create the inspirational poem “Florida Skies” that depicts their struggles and how they plan to overcome it.
Along with this very encouraging poem our teens sought to create an equally inspiring visual to match by going out into the neighboring area to take photos and video shots. After compiling these items they were able to edit them together to create – Florida Skies an Inspirational Poem.
