How We Help Teens With Substance Abuse Recovery

Antelope Recovery understands the grip of substance abuse on a teen’s life. We use evidence-based practices to aid your teen’s journey toward healing. Rather than providing services in a clinical setting that doesn’t always translate well into real-life situations, we focus on helping your teen to recover and grow at home — where they can practice new therapeutic skills in immediately relevant circumstances. This is especially important with substance use as cravings come up in day-to-day life circumstances.

  • Comprehensive treatment plans addressing root causes of substance abuse
  • Comprehensive contingency management program for drug testing
  • Therapies aimed at building positive habits and breaking cycles of addiction
  • Family coaching and education to support families in the day-to-day conflicts that inevitably arise
  • Lifelong aftercare, craving, and relapse prevention strategies

A Glance at Our Intensive Care for Substance Abuse 

Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment

We offer targeted care that addresses both substance abuse and any underlying conditions. We start our program with a comprehensive assessment.   

Contingency Management

This is the most effective psychological intervention for substance use. By using rewards-based drug testing we can more effectively support teens in recovery.

Physical Care Coordination

By coordinating with our nursing staff, we can effectively address both the physical and mental aspects of recovery and well-being. Please note we are not a detox facility. 

Education & Skill Building

We focus on helping your teen learn vital skills, including self-worth, self-responsibility, emotional intelligence, impulse control, conflict resolution, communication, and more. 

Parent Support Programs

This program isn’t just for your teen — we want to ensure you have the support and skills for the journey ahead. We offer a parenting program and weekly parenting process groups. 

Post-Treatment Support

Graduation is a victory worth celebrating — but the journey doesn’t end there. We work with you and your teen to develop a plan for ongoing recovery and maintenance.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is Antelope Recovery’s approach to treating teen substance abuse?

Antelope Recovery offers a specialized approach for treating teen substance abuse, focusing on both the addiction itself and any co-occurring mental health disorders. Through contingency management programs, group therapy, peer mentorship, virtual therapy sessions and coordination with medical staff, we provide comprehensive care. Our programs are personalized to meet the unique needs of each teen, integrating targeted interventions that address the root of the problem. We are not a 12-step program and utilize primarily motivational interviewing, ACT, and community interventions.

How does Antelope Recovery address co-occurring disorders with substance abuse?

We recognize that substance abuse often comes with underlying mental health issues. If a teen struggles to cope with the symptoms of a mental illness, they may turn to drugs and alcohol. Alternatively, some teens may experiment with substances and become addicted or develop a co-occurring issue as a result. The two most common co-occurring disorders with substance use are ADHD and PTSD, and we have comprehensive strategies to support the healing of those issues alongside substance use recovery.

Whatever the case, for a teen to make a full and lasting recovery from substance abuse, we believe it’s critical to address the issue from all angles. Our specialized therapists work to treat both the addiction and any co-occurring disorders concurrently. 

Is a virtual IOP effective in treating substance abuse in teens?

Yes, virtual mental health care has proven to be a powerful tool in treating substance abuse. For teens who have tried therapy and other options before with no success, at-home treatment offers a comfortable and effective alternative. Because many triggers for teens occur at home or school, having support that can be with the kids in those environments fighting fires alongside the teenager is critical for effective recovery.

Virtual care options have opened access for people across the state of Colorado, allowing teens in rural or remote areas access to intensive outpatient care without the long drive. Remote treatment has a higher graduation rate than in-person care, and we’ve found that teens who get help in their everyday environment have more success in practicing and applying their new skills in their daily lives. 

What is the cost of substance abuse treatment at Antelope Recovery? 

The cost of Antelope Recovery’s intensive care for substance abuse is tailored to meet the specific needs and schedules of each family. Given the wide range of over 20 distinct service and appointment types we offer, which vary in cost from $50 to $200 per hour, establishing an exact cost upfront without a detailed understanding of your situation is not feasible. Our focus is on developing a personalized care plan that not only addresses your unique requirements but also maintains affordability.

To support accessibility, we accept several insurance options:

  • Colorado Access Medicaid
  • Aetna
  • SignalBHN

For families whose insurance plans are not currently among those we accept, we strive to ensure that cost is not a barrier to receiving care. We may offer scholarships and flexible financing options, underlining our commitment to providing necessary support to every teen in need.

Prosper Healthcare Lending is also a valuable resource for those in search of additional financial assistance for their child’s care. Moreover, we recommend that families seeking insurance reimbursement consult with an insurance advocate. This can aid in navigating the claims process more effectively and help maximize your insurance benefits.

Our goal is to simplify the care process as much as possible, ensuring that every teen can access the substance use care they require. For a more comprehensive discussion regarding costs, insurance coverage, and available financial assistance, please reach out to our admissions team.

Do you offer support for families during the substance abuse treatment process?

Absolutely! We understand that family plays a vital role in a teen’s recovery. Alongside individual treatment, we offer family therapy sessions to foster communication and understanding. These sessions are aimed at creating a supportive environment where family members can work together toward shared goals and healing.

We also have a support program for parents, which is included as part of our IOP. There’s no denying that your leg in the journey can be just as trying as what your teen is experiencing — and communication breakdowns don’t help either party. We’re here to be a supportive force and equip you with skills to effectively help your teen through this struggle.
