A youth is a person who is between the age of childhood and adulthood. A youth is characterized by much energy, vigor, good appearance, freshness and high spirit. The youth is the biggest percentage of the population which use drugs. The major drugs abused by the youth are; heroin, cocaine, alcohol, over the counter drugs, bhang, and alcohol. Continued use of drugs lead to a condition known as drug addiction. The high percentage of the youth are also addicted to adult movies. Addiction to watching adult videos has ruined a lot of relationships. In order to treat drug addiction and adult movie addiction, one should be taken to a youth rehab center. A good rehab center for the youth should have the following features.
A good youth rehab center should be accredited. A license is the most crucial accreditation. The license acts as a permit in the provision of goods and services and it is offered by the authoritative bodies. The rehab center should meet some minimum set requirements in order to get a license. A valid license should have a future expiry date. A youth rehab center should also be accredited by the government.
A good rehab center for the youth should not only have short-term programs but also long-term programs. The long-term programs are suitable for the youth who have a strong addiction. The short-term programs are for the youth not strongly addicted to adult movies and drugs. Many rehab centers have short-term programs of 28 days although the program may not successfully achieve sobriety. Long-term programs are more effective than the short-term programs.
A good youth rehab center should offer good nutrition. Nutritious food facilitates drug addiction treatment. The balanced diet also enables the drug addict to recover his/her good health. Between breakfast, lunch, and supper, there should be other meals. The nutrients and energy offered by the regular meals facilitate drug addiction treatment.
Follow-up activities is another feature of a good youth rehab center. After a person has been treated and discharged, the rehab center should follow up on him/her in order to determine if he/she has totally recovered. In case one has not fully recovered, he/she should be enrolled back for further counseling and treatment. Follow-up programs ensures that one has become important in the society.
Finally, the best youth rehabilitation centers have competent counselors. A counselor should be learned, skilled and experienced. A counselor should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in counseling. Offering counseling services for many years makes a counselor be highly skilled and experienced.
