For younger patients between 14 and 18 years old, The Counseling Center provides mental health and drug or alcohol use treatment in Philadelphia. As a teen participating in our program, you’ll benefit from compassionate and focused care and work closely with staff who understand the specific challenges you’re experiencing. Our outpatient therapy will guide your recovery from drug or alcohol use while aiding individuals who struggle with mood disorders, anxiety, and other co-occurring mental health disorders.

Treating Addiction And Mental Illness In Teenagers

Our Adolescent Outpatient Program is particularly crafted to help teens overcome addiction and mental health disorders. We support individuals in 8th through 12th grade, with 14 being the age minimum. Our goal is to help you address the contributing factors behind your drug or alcohol use, including triggers, stresses, and co-occurring disorders.

We realize that teens face specific struggles that factor into alcohol and drug use. Our licensed counselors use approaches that delve into social and developmental concerns impacting teenagers as they move into adulthood. Working with our skilled team, you’ll engage in personalized private counseling to examine subjects such as:


  • Self-esteem
  • Emotion regulation
  • Healthy relationships
  • Peer pressure
  • Bullying
  • Decision-making skills


In therapy, you’ll gain an understanding of how these things contribute to drug or alcohol use and develop effective strategies to halt your reliance on substances. By using these helpful skills, you’ll have more positive ways to handle family, friends, and school.

Alcohol And Drug Addiction In Teens

In a similar fashion as adults, teenagers try to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs to handle the daily challenges of life. Sadly, this might result in addiction. Many of the triggers that can play a role in drug and alcohol use disorders in teens include:


  • Mood issues
  • Difficult peer relationships
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Hormone changes
  • Difficulties at school and home
  • Undiagnosed mental illness


By turning to the understanding staff at The Counseling Center at Cherry Hill, teens are able to explore how these factors play a role in their drug or alcohol use and work on positive coping techniques to live happier and healthier lives.
