Las Vegas’s Preferred Acute Adolescent Treatment Program for Detox

Children and teens battling substance abuse and addiction need appropriate and effective care in order to successfully recover. Especially if they become dependent on drugs and/or alcohol, the right services can make all the difference in the world. Given these facts, we, at Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital, are pleased to offer an adolescent detox program as part of our comprehensive addiction services for young people.

Simply stopping the abuse of heroin, alcohol, painkillers, and other such substances is not always easy. For many individuals, including children and teens, withdrawal symptoms and cravings for substances can prevent them from achieving sobriety. Once a person stops abusing substances is when withdrawal symptoms and cravings can start, and these effects can often be overwhelming, uncomfortable, and quickly cause a relapse into using drugs and/or alcohol once more. When withdrawal symptoms and cravings threaten an individual’s ability to recover, detox may be needed to jumpstart the recovery process. Therefore, if you choose our Las Vegas, Nevada area hospital to help your adolescent become sober, detox may be part of his or her personalized treatment plan if he or she is dependent on substances.
