Addiction has increased among adolescents due to various factors such as social networking. When addiction takes over, treatment should be sought. Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers have successfully provided mental health, substance abuse and family treatment since 2002. Most adolescents come from southern California, others from big cities like New York City, Chicago and International. Visions’ treatment programs accept adolescents 13 to 18 years old.
Addiction symptoms vary in each person but there are a few common ones that can be observed requiring adolescent addiction treatment.
- No longer caring about a neat personal appearance in public.
- A child once social suddenly turns to isolation avoiding large gatherings.
- Old friends are dropped for new ones who are bad influences.
- Dramatic drop in work or school performance and frequent absences.
- Mood Swings often change between exhilarating highs and depressing lows.
A child showing the signs listed or exhibiting similar suspicious behavior may require adolescent addiction treatment.
