Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I handle my teen’s addiction within the family?
If your teen’s substance-related disorder has reached the addiction stage, you can’t afford to risk their life and the lives of others who may be affected by their actions. Addiction cannot be overcome by willpower.
My teen doesn’t run with a bad crowd so why should I be worried about drugs?
The myth that only “bad” kids get mixed up with drugs and alcohol is just that, a myth. Any teen can be at risk of developing a substance-related disorder. Some are curious, some are acting out, and some just want to fit in.
Is addiction a mental disorder?
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction is a brain disease because it changes the way the brain works. An addict is at risk of losing self-control, and the reason he/she cannot resist the temptation of drugs is because of these changes in the brain.

It has been a journey but M is clean and sober. When she left Destinations, it wasn't easy. She has made this transition on her own and we are quite proud of her. She has realized that her family is her support system and has been there through the thick and thin of it and always will be there for her. She has come to see the light. Destinations provided what she needed to start this recovery Journey.
