Gatehouse Academy Releases a New Guide for Choosing a Substance Abuse Treatment Center for Teens and Young Adults


With the increasing rate of drug abuse, parents often find themselves in need of a rehab for their teenagers or young adults and realize they do not understand how treatment centers work. Because of this, Gatehouse Academy has provided a free, objective guide.

Wickenburg, Arizona (WEBWIRE) April 21, 2008 — Gatehouse Academy has released a guide to assist parents in choosing the right rehab facility for their teens and young adults. Crystal methamphetamine and other addictive drug use is on the rise and the number of people seeking help is increasing. Because of this, Gatehouse Academy, a long-term drug and alcohol treatment facility, has posted an article on their website to help parents find the right treatment center for their teens and young adults.

The article arms parents with important questions to ask and consider when they are seeking a rehab center for their teens and young adults. Young people have different needs than older adults and it is important for them to be in the most appropriate rehab possible. With the right questions to ask, parents will be better prepared to make the difficult decision.

Included in this article are questions ranging from the cost of treatment to methodologies practiced by the facility to questions about treating dual-diagnosis. Each person is different and has individual needs. This article helps parents figure out what those needs are.

Gatehouse Academy saw the need for an informational article and guide to be available for parents and they quickly filled this void by providing an objective guide that is free for anyone that wants it. The article, “How to Choose a Drug or Alcohol Rehab for Your Teen or Young Adult: 10 Questions to Ask Before Deciding,” is available on their website.

“Parents often do not understand what makes a drug rehab center successful or if a particular center will be successful for their child. This guide helps parents to know what to ask,” said Jacquie Arcand, the Director of Marketing for Gatehouse Academy.

This article is the first in a series of informative articles relating to drug use, abuse and recovery.
