The changes that occur between puberty and the mid-20s create a period of intense learning about who we are and who we want to be. When adolescents experiment with alcohol and other drugs, it can quickly heat up and boil over into a bigger problem.

Our professional mental health supports can help to cool things down for adolescents; helping them become solidly rooted and better able to withstand life’s storms without the misuse of substances.

At North Range Behavioral Health, we use evidence-based, strengths-based treatments that center on supporting young people in their decision-making rather than lecturing them or using scare tactics. Our comprehensive services can help transform unhealthy coping behaviors into healthy self-expression, critical reflection, and social skills that will benefit them for years to come.

If an adolescent in your life is struggling with substance use disorder or exhibiting behavior that indicates things might be heating up, it’s okay to ask for help. Our highly skilled professionals help families create protective factors that encourage young people to develop skills to make good decisions for a healthy transition into adulthood.
