Your teen was a thriving, energetic kid until prescription drugs entered the picture. It was triggered by a sports injury that required surgery or some other traumatic event. Now, your teen is hopped up on pain pills and going down a path that could lead to worse drugs.
As dark and out of control as your life may seem, there is hope. At Kokua Recovery, we can help end the disfunction surrounding your teen’s addiction. Our teen opioid rehab addresses your child’s addiction and underlying mental health problems, so you can regain the stability and joy your family has lost.
There’s no doubt the opioid epidemic has taken the nation by storm. But we can’t forget the underlying issues that lead to opioid addiction in the first place.
At Kokua Recovery, we know your teen is probably also struggling with trauma or some other issue festering beneath the surface that led to the opioid addiction or made it worse. That’s why we take a trauma-focused approach to treatment that leverages clinical and experiential interventions to try to reverse the damage caused by prescription painkillers.
Your teen will experience 42 hours a week of therapist-led intervention therapy to help them recover from their addiction and trauma. 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.
While not always the case, many of the teens we treat have mental health and behavioral issues that accompany their substance abuse. At Kokua, we address two main drivers of substance abuse: trauma that may be affecting mental health and substance abuse, and the lack of executive functioning skills like empathy and interpersonal connection. Because of our experience and understanding of your teen’s brain, we’re able to tackle these issues during treatment.
Twice a week, your teen will experience recreational activities like hiking in the mountains, white water rafting, skiing and much more. This kind of therapy serves as an outlet for stress, replaces the time periods your teen would be seeking drugs and helps to rewire the brain after addiction.
These experiences are engineered to help your teen develop sober and successful coping mechanisms during high-stress activities. The goal is to break up an old stress pattern with the a new, functional one that helps heal connections and 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.
Centering your life around your teen’s opioid addiction is exhausting. We know you want nothing more than to find peace and see your child live a healthy life again. If you’re ready to turn that hope into a reality, contact us today to get started.
