Dangers of Young Adult Drug Abuse

More young adults are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse than ever before. Drug use is a national epidemic. In fact, almost one quarter of 18-20-year-olds reported having used an illicit drug within the last month.

… Almost one quarter of 18-20-year-olds reported having used an illicit drug within the last month.

Until a person is 25, experts don’t consider their brain to be “fully developed.” When a young adult’s brain is still in its vital developmental stage, it’s crucial to seek help for a substance use disorder as soon as possible. Otherwise, drug or alcohol abuse may negatively affect a young adult’s brain development or “stall” their emotional growth.

Barriers to Young Adults Seeking Addiction Treatment

Unfortunately, because many young adults haven’t used drugs or alcohol for very long, they tend to minimize their substance abuse problems.

Many young adults enter treatment feeling like they “aren’t ready” to get sober, or that they’re being forced by family members to enter rehab. Sometimes, attending a treatment facility can even feel like a punishment to a young adult or a violation of their freedom.

Hotel California’s rehab for young adults program is equipped with clinical experts trained to deal with the unique perspectives, experiences, and emotions of young adults in an alcohol and drug rehab program. With time, many young adult clients begin to recognize the value of attending treatment and how it will benefit them.

Rehab for Young Adults Levels of Care

Depending on a young client’s individual needs and the severity of their withdrawal, our clinical team may suggest they start with the highest level of care, medical detoxification. After this first step, most clients quickly transition down into less intensive treatment stages, like residential rehab, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment, and outpatient treatment.

Completing an inpatient or outpatient program isn’t always enough to keep a young person sober, however.

After attending our rehab for young adults programs, our clinical team often suggests that our young adult clientele transition into a less intensive, but still supportive, environment, where they can continue their efforts to stay clean. Sober living and other transitional housing offers accountability and community to young adults recovering from substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders.

With a designated aftercare coordinator and their case manager, a young adult client will have the opportunity to discuss his or her plans for after leaving treatment. These plans might include finding a local behavioral therapist, establishing a healthy living situation for after treatment ends, and finding local 12-step meetings.

The typical levels of care in our rehab for young adults treatment program are as follows:

It’s important to note that everyone’s treatment progression is different. The speed at which a young adult transitions between levels of care, or the level of care that they begin with, depends on the clients’ particular treatment needs.

Evidence-Based Therapies

Because no client is the same as the next, Hotel California employs a number of evidence-based therapeutic treatments to help heal our young adults of every background or personal preference.

Some of these therapies include:


Young Adult Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps young adults to become aware of their thoughts and cognitive processes. Also referred to as “talk therapy”, CBT helps our younger clients uncover more about their disease and cope with the inevitable changes and uncomfortable emotions arising from entering treatment.


Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is especially helpful in treating clients with behavioral problems, anger issues, and co-occurring mood disorders. DBT helps a client focus on becoming mindful and aware of any sensations or feelings in their mind or body, and then healthily cope with these experiences. DBT teaches hard coping skills that help addicts and alcoholics withstand cravings and other scary emotions.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Addiction has a tremendous effect on the lives of young adults and their family members. Addiction is a personal disease that simultaneously attacks the addict and their entire family unit at the same time. Many young adults enter treatment with loved ones who are scared, worried, hurt, and confused. With the ongoing support and participation of loved ones, clients can improve strained relationships with their family members.

Group Therapy

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an essential part of treating young adults with substance use disorders. A teen or young adult surrounded by other like-minded individuals can become vulnerable with his or her peers. Feeling a “part of” is essential when recovering from an addiction. Group therapy allows young adults to discuss their joys, troubles, fears and struggles in a safe and structured setting.


Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

EMDR is a therapy for young adults who suffer from past trauma. It is an innovative therapy proven to improve the distressing symptoms of PTSD. EMDR helps clients who suffer from flashbacks desensitize their memories and better be able to work through their painful experiences.

Young adults suffering from substance abuse and addiction require a different treatment approach than more mature adults. It takes a dedicated team of highly experienced addiction specialists and a highly intensive treatment regimen to uncover the root causes of someone’s substance use disorder and heal it from the inside out.
