Youth Intervention and Addiction Treatment In Alberta and BC

Are you worried about your teenager's behavior? Is your teenager engaged in risky and dangerous behavior? Do you think that she or he might have a problem with alcohol or drugs? These are serious questions about addiction and we understand if you are worried. Give Options Okanagan a call today about an intervention, so that one of our treatment counselors can help to evaluate your situation.

A great number of teenagers every day in Alberta and British Columbia use alcohol and/or drugs for the very first time. For some, tragically this initial experimentation with teen rebellion may turn quickly into a serious alcohol and drug addiction. If you are the father, mother, friend, sibling, counselor, or teacher of a teenager who is struggling with alcohol addiction and drug abuse, then you are familiar already with the pain and devastation that teenage addiction comes with. If a teenager you love is throwing away their life due to an addiction to drugs or alcohol, an interventioni> might be the answer that you have been searching for.

If you are worried about the behavior of your teenager or are unsure of what will come next, give Options a call and ask us whatever questions you have.

It is never too late or too soon to get help for your teenager.

You might be wondering if it's "Too Early or The Right Time" for staging an intervention on a teen. If you have conducted any preliminary research on addiction treatment or addiction, then you are probably familiar with the concept that every drug addict needs to "hit rock bottom" before she or he will accept help. Although there is some truth to that, here at Options Okanagan, we strongly believe in the concept of "raising the rock bottom." So, therefore, an interventioni> might be the event in the teenager's life that lets the teen know that it is enough and that things do not need to continue getting worse before they start getting better.

At times you might be tempted to dismiss a severe problem as being just a "phase" that the teen will grow out of eventually. Addiction is serious business and breaking your own denial's barrier is critical to getting your teenager the help that she or he deserves. If your teenager is exhibiting any of the following behaviors, then she or he might have a problem with alcohol or drugs:

a) When confronted, denial of the problem
b) Sleeping much less or more than usual
c) Irrational anger and increased irritability
d) Increased isolation from their family
e) Sudden changes in peer group or friends
f) Drop in grades
g) Problems with the law
h) Showing sharp mood swings or signs of depression
i) Problems at school
j) Missing or skipping school

Whether or not the teenager in your life is engaged in behavior that is mildly rebellious or is showing more serious symptoms of alcohol and drug addiction, it's never too early to plan an intervention. Here at Options Okanagan, we are here to assist you with determining the appropriate course of action to take for your teenager and family. From family counseling at the pre-intervention phase to getting your teenager into treatment, we can help you and your entire family each step in the process. If you have questions or want more information on our services, please give us a call at 1-855-335-0331.
