Mission: “At, our mission is to equip patients and families with the best information, resources and tools to overcome addiction and lead a lifelong recovery.”

It may be time to get professional help. While not everybody requires treatment for their problem, it might be the best decision you’ve ever made, and the turning point in defeating your habit.

Family therapy, according to certain studies, yields the best results in cases of teenage substance abuse.

Therapists highly recommend the involvement of parents in the treatment process, as nurturing these relationships can play a major role in curing an addiction. In cases where the parents are unavailable, one-on-one behavior therapy is the next best thing. A short stay in a residential treatment facility may be encouraged as well.

An appointment with a qualified doctor or therapist can help assess the severity of your problem, and determine the proper treatment plan. Medication to fight the symptoms of addiction will be prescribed in certain cases.

This website offers support and information for teens and families facing issues around drug and alcohol abuse treatment and recovery.

This website has links to programs in Rochester and around the country for alcohol and substance abuse.

“When you are putting money into a family member’s health, future and happiness, you need to make sure you’re choosing the right option for your Rochester alcohol and substance abuse rehab program. While the most prudent choice may still be to talk to our helpline experts so they can discuss your personal requirements, checking out how people have reviewed or rated some of the addiction rehabilitation programs in or around you is another excellent way to begin.”

“When you experience great care like I did, you realize that everyone should have that opportunity. We need to educate people about addiction and offer solutions for folks in need. That’s the greatest gift I can give as a recovering addict.”

– Chris Carberg, Founder, Addiction Center
