What makes for successful teen recovery? Alternative Peer Groups!! ⠀

From a developmental perspective, adolescents have unique clinical qualities making them different from young adults and older adults in terms of the nature of their substance use problems, and the different factors that influence these problems positive and negatively.⠀

For example, research shows that environmental influences on substance use predominate among adolescents, while family history (e.g., genetic influences) becomes more prominent during young adulthood.⠀

Yet, we often conceptualize substance use disorder recovery in adolescents like we do adults: a lifestyle marked by abstinence with an emphasis on personal growth and citizenship.⠀

The words we use matter. When we know better, we can do better. ⠀

The word “abuser” has been found to increase stigma, which can affect quality of care and act as a barrier to seeking treatment. ⠀

Instead of describing someone as a “drug abuser,” it may be less stigmatizing and more medically accurate to describe them as “a person with, or suffering from, addiction or substance use disorder.”⠀

We are thankful for the generous support of this years donors and partners!!! ⠀

The effects of the Covid pandemic have been a challenge for all this year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stated that beyond getting sick, many adolescents’ social, emotional and mental well-being have been impacted. You can imagine the special challenge for adolescents who are in recovery from substance use disorder during this time.⠀

Your donations have supported us in not only providing students with quality education, but also with the recovery haven our students desperately need in these hard times.⠀
