Adolescent Treatment Centers Grants Pass OR

Teens, searching for acceptance, drink for one of three reasons. Fitting in is a major issue for most teenagers. They feel alone and disassociated. Drinking, they feel, is the way to make them fit in with other teens. While it makes them feel accepted, it can also lead to a more empty feeling. This can, in turn, encourage more drinking and sometimes drug use. However, this can be curbed in most instances.

Adapt has been providing help and support for recovery in Southern Oregon for over 30 years. Literally thousands of people have been given the opportunity to reclaim their lives and the lives of their families by participating in our programs.
However it does not matter how good a substance abuse program is. Unless a person wants to change... they will not. We feel that the largest part of the treatment process is providing the most current information to people so they can make the most informed choices about substance use. If they decide they want to change then our task becomes helping nurture that desire and re-inforcing the motivation to change.
If you, or someone close to you has a problem with substance abuse or other self destructive behaviors... we can help. We've been helping for years.

Chemical dependency is complex chronic illness. It pervades every aspect of an addict’s biology, psychology and behavior. At each level of existence, it transmutes function into dysfunction.

The ultimate cost of chemical dependency is incalculable. Scattered along the trail of destruction are individual lives, relationships, property, economies, promises, hopes and dreams.

Chemical dependency is treatable, but treatment must work on as many levels as the disease: individual, family, community, biochemical, psychological, behavioral, legal and economic among others. OnTrack’s strategy is to confront substance abusers in each of these realms, with the ultimate goal of restoring function where nothing remains but wreckage.

Located in Southwestern Oregon, Josephine County is bordered on the south by California and the Pacific coast is just two hours away. Josephine County was created by the Territorial Legislature on January 22, 1856, from the western half of Jackson County. And was named for Josephine Rollins, the first white woman to settle in southern Oregon. Learn more about the history of Josephine County here.

Josephine County is mountainous, but also has two major valleys and three rivers; the Rogue, the Applegate and the Illinois. These scenic rivers are world renowned for whitewater rafting and fishing. Many Josephine County Parks are situated on the Rogue River; these parks offer camping and great activities such as disc golf, hiking, volleyball, softball and fishing.

One point of interest in Josephine County is the Grave Creek Covered Bridge; this is one of the few functional covered bridges that remain in southern Oregon. This historic bridge is the only covered bridge visible from the Oregon I-5 freeway.

What Factors Contribute to Teen Drinking?

Shyla Martin

Friday, September 14, 2007 I believe there are many factors that contribute to alcohol problems in teens. 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.

Teens, searching for acceptance, drink for one of three reasons. Fitting in is a major issue for most teenagers. They feel alone and disassociated. Drinking, they feel, is the way to make them fit in with other teens. While it makes them feel accepted, it can also lead to a more empty feeling. This can, in turn, encourage more drinking and sometimes drug use. However, this can be curbed in most instances. Getting your teenagers involved in activities outside of school is a big help. Theaters are always looking for volunteers for set and costume production. There are sports, church groups, and many other ways of getting teenagers involved. With involvement comes self-esteem.

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...
