Drug Rehab for Boys | Residential Teen Addiction Treatment

Successful and Healthy Men Grow From Supported Teens.
Nurturing That Growth Is What We Do at Ember Recovery, Drug Rehab for Boys.

The statistics are staggering. 90% of adults who struggle with substance use began partaking as a teen.[1] With the rise of mental health concerns, increased academic and athletic pressures, anxiety about their future, and family stressors, it’s no wonder many teens feel out of options.

Perhaps they turn to substances to numb the pain of past trauma. To help them hyper-focus on endless tasks and responsibilities. To reduce the emotional impact of unhealthy relationships or circumstances. Whatever the reason, substances are never a solution – they’re a crisis all their own.

We’re here to break the cycle and inspire hope for a substance-free future.

A future that is free of harmful impulses and negative behaviors.

A future where personal autonomy is a constant and peace is attainable.

One that can be achieved and maintained when properly established and supported.

Welcome to your teen recovery support solution.

What Does Inpatient Addiction Treatment Look Like?

Each patient undergoes a detailed intake assessment to determine what therapies and treatment modalities best treat their needs. After they’re admitted, treatment will begin.

Comfortable and Homey Accommodations

Far from a sterile hospital environment, Ember Recovery homes for boys are traditional homes modified for teen group living. Teens will receive all treatment on-site and have access to 24/7 monitoring and support. All of our homes also offer inclusive treatment for LGBTQIA+ teens.

Academic Support

We believe that a teen’s education shouldn’t suffer due to their battle with substance use. Ember Recovery works closely with school districts, teachers, and parents to ensure each teen can maintain their studies while receiving full-time treatment.

Nature-Infused Environment

Plant life has a natural calming effect and inspires reflection and relaxation. We have designed our treatment spaces to reflect these principles and nurture a recovery-driven environment.

Why Choose Residential Drug Treatment Vs. Outpatient Treatment?

Inpatient or residential treatment requires the teen to live on-site at a facility or in a private and safe residence. During their stay, they will receive all of their treatment and care, from meals and counseling to lab work and therapy. Teens at Ember Recovery eat, sleep, live, and recover together with their peers and experienced and vetted support staff.

Outpatient treatment is daily sometimes, but the patient is not required to sleep on-site. Outpatient options are best suited to teens who have already completed an inpatient or residential program but may also be appropriate for more mild addictions or behavioral concerns.

To determine the most appropriate level of care for your teen, contact Ember Recovery today to discuss their unique needs.
