Many teens find it difficult to stop using drugs and alcohol without a change of environment. To help teens through early sobriety, a residential alcohol and substance abuse rehab treatment program may be necessary. To provide residential alcohol and substance abuse treatment, the Pathway Program partners with Step Two Recovery Center. Step Two Recovery Center is a licensed level 4 transitional living addiction recovery center which means teens ages 13 to 17 may live at Step Two for 45 days and receive needed around the clock supervision while they are receiving residential alcohol and substance abuse treatment from the Pathway Program. Step Two Recovery Center accepts both male and female clients and has eight beds. To find out more about the residential substance abuse treatment program for teens at Step Two Recovery Center visit their website www.steptworecovery.com.
The Pathway program provides all of the alcohol and substance abuse counseling for teens admitted into Step Two. Step Two clients attend a specialized program at Pathway Monday through Friday, where they receive group and individual counseling sessions.
Along with counseling, Step Two clients attend Pathway’s teen support group meetings where they are given a chance to connect with other teens in alcohol and substance abuse rehab recovery. Teens in the Step Two residential substance abuse treatment program are able to focus on staying clean and sober for 45 days and practice newly learned coping skills in a safe environment free of distractions and relapse triggers i.e., friends who use drugs, fights with parents, social pressure. Without these stressors teens in the residential substance abuse treatment program quickly build self-esteem and become prepared to deal with their lives drug free.
During their child’s stay at the Step Two residential substance abuse treatment program, parents are involved through parent counseling sessions, weekly visits and parent support group meetings. While in Step Two for 45 days, teens and their parents have the opportunity to work on family relationships and prepare for life at home after treatment. For parents of Step Two clients outside of Arizona, the Pathway staff will provide phone consultations and assist in finding both parent resources and aftercare in the parent’s home state.
At Pathway, we know that recovery doesn’t end with treatment. That’s why we make sure we help teens develop skills and learn specific strategies for resisting drugs and alcohol after they leave our residential alcohol and substance abuse rehab treatment program. We always recommend that teens discharged from the Step Two residential substance abuse treatment program attend outpatient or aftercare treament programs in their hometown.
