At the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, we get right to the core of the presenting issues, whether it is addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety and/or co-occurring conditions. With the clinical expertise of Claudia Black, Ph.D., a pioneer working with both family systems and addictions, we created the foundations of our cutting-edge program that specifically meets the needs of individuals ages 18-26.
Our goal is to assist young adults to embrace the recovery process, wherein they take responsibility for their own emotional, mental, and physical healing; and to facilitate family healing and healthier functioning family system. We believe that in spite of the complexity of mental health and/or addiction issues young adults face, they can launch into a life of accountably for self, greater connectedness within community and family, and at last find meaning and purpose.
Focus on identifying and treating underlying influences of addiction
Strong use of peer community
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
