Teen Dual Diagnosis Substance Abuse Treatment in Los Angeles

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, two-thirds of teens drink alcohol before getting into their senior year of high school, and more than half of the teenagers admitted using an illegal drug. If your teen is abusing drugs or alcohol, it’s not only dangerous but it can also lead to addiction. Teen substance abuse can be an incredibly difficult problem to overcome without the right support. Luckily, with professional treatment many addicted teens manage to get their lives back on track.
