At Vitality Actions, chemically dependent adolescents are provided a comprehensive range of addiction treatment resources, including but not limited to mental health services, family counseling, detoxification services, drug testing and transitional housing. Treatment is provided on a residential basis and is comprised of group lectures and discussions featuring topics such as addiction, sex education, family dysfunction, self-reliance, parenting, anger management and more.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
