Teen drug abuse is a persistent problem in America, and unfortunately, is on the rise again. With recent State and Federal budget cuts, funding across the country for adolescent drug treatment has dwindled. There are far fewer drug rehab facilities today than there were just 5 years ago. Locating inpatient and outpatient teen rehab programs has become a challenge for parents and adults seeking local teen drug treatment resources.
RehabForTeens.org is a new online information center which provides general information on teen substance abuse and contact information for a variety of teen drug rehab programs across the United States. The site was launched in January 2012 and will undergo periodic updates to keep people informed on the availability of teen rehab programs in each U.S. state.
RehabForTeens.org describes the different types of drug treatments available for teenagers and offers a blog from the unique perspective of parents as well as drug treatment professionals. Drug rehabilitation for teens has emerged as a very important social topic with so many young people facing tough choices on a daily basis.
