How Does the After-School Recovery Program Work?

Our program was designed to treat the core issues that lead to risky behaviors such as substance abuse, self-harm, eating disorders, and other harmful acts. We believe that in order to properly treat your child, we must first evaluate and diagnosis any underlying mental or physical illnesses that can be attributed to their disruptive behaviors. Our main goal is to provide teens and adolescents with the tools necessary to not only live a life free of substance, but also a full life.

If you’ve landed on this page, there’s a good chance you suspect that your teen or adolescent is abusing substances or has a mental illness that can lead to addiction. The Principles Academy for Adolescent was created when the staff at Principles Recovery Center saw a great need in the local community for adolescent services. We know that the rate of addiction in America has increased, to the point that in fact, 1 in 7 Americans will suffer from a substance abuse disorder once in their lifetime.

Getting your teen the help they need in their developmental years can make a huge difference on how the rest of their lives turn out to be. Here at The Academy for Adolescent Wellness, we believe that a person doesn’t need to be an adult to find recovery and live a life without substances. Early intervention is key to getting your adolescent or teen the help they need, in a setting that doesn’t disrupt their academic career.

The unique part of our After-School Recovery Program is that it allows your child to still focus on their schooling while attending treatment after school. We provide transport from schools to our center in Davie, FL where our staff will work with your teen individually to address their issues, learn critical problem-solving skills, and find solutions. We currently provide after school teen mental health and substance abuse therapy to Miramar, Davie, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Cooper City, Hollywood, Hallendale, Plantation, Weston, and more.

    What Do I Expect When My Teen Enters Treatment?

    When you make the decision to reach out for help, our team will guide you through the easy admission process. Many people believe falsely that you must have thousands of dollars to attend rehab when all insurance plans are now required to cover substance abuse and mental health treatment. We will work with you to ensure that your teen gets the help they need, no matter what.

    Once your teen or adolescent is ready to begin treatment we begin with our 5 step treatment process as outlined on the treatment services page. This process allows us to evaluate, diagnose, treat and monitor your teen’s recovery, even long after they leave our program.

    The professional clinical staff at The Academy for Adolescent Wellness has crafted a unique program that focuses on addressing all the issues that are leading to disruptive and destructive behaviors. When your child enters the After-School Recovery Program you and your teen can expect:

    • Initial psychological testing and diagnosis.
    • IOP Sessions 3 days a week.
    • Family night once weekly at 6:00 PM.
    • Convenient program times, from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM  Monday through Friday.
    • Transport from local schools to our facility for working families.
    • Small Groups, a 6:1 client to therapist ratio.
    • Parent & family education & workshops.
    • Healthy snacks & drinks provided, with dinner available at an additional cost.

    These are just some aspects of our treatment program for teens and adolescents who are struggling with substance abuse and related mental illness. Our goal is to teach your child the needed tools to help them overcome these obstacles and begin to live their new life in recovery.

    The Benefits of a Teen Treatment Program & Early Intervention

    Even though South Florida is considered the “rehab capital of the U.S.”, there are unfortunately not enough programs that assist teens and adolescents who are struggling with substance abuse and mental illness. When we at Principles Recovery Center saw the need in the South Florida community, we immediately took action and created the Principles Academy for Adolescent Wellness at our Davie, Florida treatment facility.

    When searching for a treatment center for your teen, we believe that the Academy for Adolescent Wellness is the best choice for your teen’s future. Our expert clinical staff truly aims to treat the core issues that lead to mental illness and substance abuse.

    You may be wondering if your child needs rehab, and what about school?

    Don’t worry. Understanding that an adolescent’s academic career is an important element, we created our After-School Recovery Program, which is a specialized intensive outpatient program that allows your teen to get the benefits of inpatient rehab while not missing out on their schooling. Our program offers multiple treatment options that allow your teen to overcome their issues and begin building their new future in recovery.
