Teen Mental Health Treatment
Legal issues amongst adolescents and teens can vary in severity. An adolescent can get in trouble for possession of a substance such as marijuana or prescription drugs. In addition, many adolescents get in trouble for drinking and driving, having open containers of alcohol, or being intoxicated in public. Legal issues do not have to encompass substance abuse problems. They can also mean running away, severe truancy and other behaviors such as shoplifting, inappropriate “sexting" and driving without a license.
Many families are torn apart when their teen or adolescent gets in serious trouble due to their behavior. Center For Discovery is very experienced in working with families alongside with court systems, probation officers, and attorneys. We know that many adolescents that come to our program with legal issues must maintain certain behavior, with proper reporting to the officials, to show that they are in compliance.
Center For Discovery will work with your family to not only meet the necessary requirements of law enforcement, but begin to look at the underlying psychological issues that diverted your teen or adolescent from the straight and narrow.
