The first time you found empty beer bottles, you maybe thought it was a phase. But then it progressed to more drinking, declining school performance and outbursts at home. As your life continues to spiral, all you want is your teen back and for your lives to get better.
At Kokua Recovery, we can help. Our treatment program is focused on helping your teen heal from alcohol addiction and the underlying trauma they’re struggling with, so we can help you regain the control and stability you and your family have been missing.
Alcohol addiction triggers a lot of fear, anger and destruction, but it isn’t working alone. Oftentimes, your teen is dealing with trauma or underlying issues that either led to alcoholism or has made their drinking worse.
At Kokua Recovery, we take a very clinical and trauma-focused approach to your teen’s alcohol addiction. Your teen will experience clinical interventions and experiential therapies to help rewire the brain and try to undo the damage alcohol and trauma have caused.
Your teen will experience 42 hours a week of therapist-led intervention therapy. This includes:
Your teen’s schedule will also include on-site school five days per week with our Academic Director and three nutritionist approved, home-cooked meals a day to help strengthen your child’s body and mind after addiction.
Substance abuse is often accompanied by mental health and behavioral issues. This is because your teen is either dealing with trauma or struggling with executive functioning skills like empathy, interpersonal connection and cause an effect thinking.
At Kokua, we tackle both these drivers in treatment to help your teen overcome the additional mental and behavioral challenges they’re facing alongside their addiction.
Twice a week, your teen will experience recreational activities like hiking in the mountains, white water rafting, skiing and much more. These therapeutic and recreational activities give your teen an outlet for their stress. They also replace the time periods your teen would spend doing drugs and helps to heal their brains from addiction.
These experiences are engineered to help your teen develop sober and successful coping mechanisms during high-stress activities. The goal is to replace your teen’s previous stress patterns with a healthy, functional one that helps heal your teen’s brain.
Every other month, Kokua teens go to Guatemala to work with a non-profit that builds garden boxes for the local population. With these garden boxes, families can produce enough produce to sustain themselves indefinitely.
This gives your son or daughter the opportunity to participate in an incredible and fulfilling service project that will help them learn to control their impulses and grow into a mature, compassionate individual that doesn’t need drugs to live an exciting, passionate life.
We know how out of control you’re feeling, but there is hope. We can help you bring function and happiness back into your life by helping your teen recover from alcohol addiction and trauma. If you’re ready for healing and joy in your home again, contact us today to get started.
