About addiction and substance abuse care for adolescents
Allina Health offers addiction and substance abuse care for adolescents. The goal is to prepare teens who are in recovery for life after addiction treatment, and then to help them sustain recovery after rehabilitation. Services include individual counseling, family education and referrals to other services.
Counseling is not a one-size-fits-all process. Different approaches are more appropriate and effective for different people, depending on their age, type of addiction and the factors that contributed to their addiction.
A substance use disorder comprehensive assessment (formerly known as Rule 25) is necessary to qualify for a programs. Through this assessment, our referral specialist can help select the treatment option that best suits the needs of your teen.
What to expect from your visit
When your adolescent undergoes treatment at Allina Health, they can expect individual treatment sessions with a licensed alcohol and drug counselor and/or a mental health therapist.
