Teens, searching for acceptance, drink for one of three reasons. Fitting in is a major issue for most teenagers. They feel alone and disassociated.

Douglas Place was originally established as a halfway house in 1976, which was then located in downtown East Grand Forks, MN. After almost 30 years, Douglas Place moved to its current location on the northeast edge of town. One of the main attractions Douglas Place has to offer is our culturally specific Native American programming. In recent years, the Minnesota Department of Human Services made changes to consolidate all residential treatment under one license. This allowed Douglas Place to restructure and provide specialized treatment to all levels of care. We offer high, medium, and low intensity residential treatment programs for men, women, and young adults. We offer Native American culturally specific treatment at high, medium, and low intensities, including young adults. Douglas Place has grown and earned longevity in the region as a treatment provider.

Specializing in Adolescents, Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders

Emotional illnesses cause injuries to us like depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. At The Stadter Center, we know that trauma, loss and emotional injuries require intensive healing, not a band-aid. It's why we began caring for individuals and families ten years ago. These illnesses actually can change how we see ourselves and feel about the world and ourselves. We go on suffering, usually alone and in silence, putting on a "brave face" for our family, friends, and co-workers. We keep trying to face life with courage but we just get worn down.

While there will always be those in any age group who feel the need to gorge themselves on this potentially harmful liquid, I feel that many teens would choose another route if it were offered to them.

Most teens feel lonely, disillusioned, and disconnected from their peers and the world around them. They don't realize that what they are feeling is normal, that all of their friends feel the same way. They are looking for anything to cling to, to make them feel more normal and mainstream. That is why peer pressure is so volatile.

Some teenagers feel that their life isn't as good as it should be. They feel abandoned and isolated, and they want to forget about their troubles. Drinking is their way of doing just that. However, letting them know that they are not alone, that life does get better, will improve their chances of staying drug and alcohol free.

Many teens simply try alcohol as an experiment. Keeping it forbidden often makes a teen want to keep trying it, even if they don't like it. While many people think it's a bad idea, my family gave me alcohol. Growing up we always had wine at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of co...
