STOP THE STIGMA! TEEN SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT




Substance Abuse Treatment is considered universally ‘uncool’. There's even a hit song about ‘drug rehab’ written and performed by Amy Winehouse. She struggled with illicit substances throughout her short life. Winehouse sadly lost her battle with addiction in 2011. She was just 27 years old at the time.


Winehouse's hit single, unfortunately, contributed to the stigma surrounding Substance Abuse Treatment, especially amongst teenagers.

The term "rehab" is often associated with negative connotations. Individuals with drug use disorders can be seen as untrustworthy, selfish, and lacking in self-control. And those unfortunate misconceptions may contribute to the stigmatization of drug treatment.


The stigma of treatment may seem difficult to conquer for those who have young, rebellious loved ones who are struggling with addiction.

However, the advantages greatly outweigh the disadvantages. Substance Abuse Treatment is used to enhance one's quality of life.

Proper treatment may provide your teen with the opportunity to resolve their substance abuse, regardless of how it started or how it is currently manifesting.
