Adolescent Illnesses

How Does Mental Illness Affect Teenagers?

Mental illness affects teenagers by means of anxiety, depression, ADHD, and bi-polar. Teenagers respond differently to each illness through their behavior by acting out to get attention and/or secluding themselves because of fear of social acceptance or someone misunderstanding them.

Of the 1.2 billion people ages 10 to 19, most adolescents are healthy. However, over the years deaths among adolescents have increased due to preventable and treatable causes. Illnesses can hinder their ability to grow and develop to their full potential, with 1 out of every 6 adolescents using or abusing alcohol, tobacco, and having unprotected sex.

Some of the main health issues among adolescents include:

  1. Early pregnancy and childbirth
  2. HIV
  3. Mental health (depression, social anxiety, ADHD, mood disorders)
  4. Violence
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Malnutrition and obesity

Promoting healthy practices such as exercise, open communication, birth control contraceptives, and education are crucial for prevention of worsened health problems in adulthood and even lessening issues in early adolescence.

Treatment is for: Myself Loved one

Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
