Abusing alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs isn't just an adult problem. While we'd like to think that adolescents don't have access to these substances, the reality is that they do. In Greenville county 17% of adolescents have need for substance abuse treatment for a substance use disorder.

Adolescents try alcohol, tobacco and other drugs for many reasons. They may be doing what other family members do. They may be trying to impress friends. They may be curious and seeking thrills. Or, they may be trying to dull the pain of their lives. Whatever the reason, it is dangerous behavior and the child is at risk of developing a substance abuse disorder. Research proves that the earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis.

At the Phoenix Center, our counselors work with adolescents, ages 12-17, who are involved in risky behaviors, have emotional problems, and/or need help with family problems.

Through our Adolescent Outpatient program, adolescents are taught life-skills needed to change behaviors that could result in negative consequences.

At the Phoenix Center, adolescents:

  • Are provided quality treatment
  • Learn the risks of substance use
  • Are provided educational groups to teach life-skills needed to change behaviors that could result in negative consequences
  • Develop positive alternatives to cope with the difficulties of adolescence
  • Learn relapse prevention techniques
  • Learn how to live effectively within a family system

Since a substance abuse disorder involves the entire family, family members are strongly encouraged to attend the family sessions.

Adolescent Services are located at the 1400 Cleveland Street, Greenville, SC  29607
