Launch Centers treats young adults struggling with substance abuse involving:
- Heroin and prescription opioids (oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, and fentanyl)
- Benzodiazepines (alprazolam, clonazepam, lorazepam, diazepam)
- Stimulants (cocaine, amphetamine (Adderall, Ritalin) methamphetamine, )
Evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and other behavioral therapies, can be highly effective in assisting the individual in treatment for substance abuse or addiction. Without the therapeutic process, the contributing factors to the substance use disorder, such as past traumas and deep-seated emotional pain, would not be identified and treated, thereby sabotaging any hopes of a lasting recovery.
As effective as individual and group therapy is for gaining important insights and establishing new healthy responses to emotional triggers, it simply isn’t enough. Young adults in treatment for substance abuse also need to define their purpose, set goals for their future, and receive guidance in achieving them. The young adult must take an active role in crafting his or her life story; in essence, the individual becomes a stakeholder in his or her own future.
