Teen Alcohol Addiction Overview
Your teen’s alcohol addiction might start with a beer taken from the refrigerator when no one is home. It might start with liquor at an unsupervised party. It could start with peer pressure from friends. It doesn’t matter how the alcohol addiction began – what matters is getting help for your teen. Many teens who suffer from alcohol addiction also suffer from low self-esteem. Our alcohol addiction treatment will not only make your teen healthy, but it will also help your teen improve his or her self-esteem. Alcohol rehab at Inspirations is not like a traditional rehab because our program is only for teens. Alcohol abuse at a young age will usually turn into a serious alcohol addiction.
Why Teens Turn to Alcohol:
- To feel good
- To fit in with their friends.
- To relieve stress.
