Empowering Young Adults Through Sobriety Based Rehab

By Jose Hernandez

While historically, treatment for the addict and/or alcoholic seeking help has been geared toward older individuals, the number of young adults searching for a solution to their substance abuse problems is on the rise.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse; “Drug use at an early age is an important predictor of development of a substance use disorder later. The majority of those who have a substance use disorder started using before age 18 and developed their disorder by age 20.”

Specialized services for the young adult can assist in building a solid foundation for recovery.

As the need for rehab facilities and detox facilities for young adults increase, the industry is beginning to respond with specialized programs that are empowering young adults through sobriety based rehab geared toward younger age groups. Specifically focusing on guiding young people to head into their 20’s and 30’s drug and alcohol free.

These programs offer educational, vocational and recovery programs personalized for each client, while focusing on the life and communication skills needed to succeed. 

Guidance during the formative years can increase the chances of long term sobriety.

Facilities like Launch Centers, provide much needed support in learning how to handle finances, time management and even fitness and nutrition. Gaining the life skills to enter adulthood with confidence breeds the necessary motivation to complete an education, as well as further expand career opportunities.

Beginning a career after you’ve completed schooling can be intimidating. Some rehabs, geared toward young adults, provide vocational guidance such as:

  • Employment Workshops
  • Resume Assistance
  • Internship and Volunteer Opportunities
  • Goal Setting
  • Employment Counseling

Peer support is an important component for young adults entering rehab.

Being around people who understand you is comforting, and it’s easier to engage in group topics when you feel at ease. The support of people in the same age group creates a sense of fellowship, especially for young adults. Peer pressure plays a large role in substance use during the adolescent years. Providing a safe environment for young people to flourish with like minded individuals, could mean the difference between resisting the temptation of drugs and alcohol and relapsing later on.

It’s important for young adults to stay busy while working on long term goals and building a foundation for recovery. Rehab is the first step toward life-long sobriety and entering a program with a diverse range of offerings can dramatically increase your chances for success.
