Teen Drug and Alcohol Rehab Approach at PaRC
PaRC's Teen Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program: Intense, Structured and Well-Rounded
Teens who have drug or alcohol problems need special attention. They also need a special treatment program. PaRC's Teen Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program offers both for teens.
Many people suffer from more than just addiction. PaRC offers support for individuals whose addictive disorders are compounded by other mental health issues. Patients who admit to the PaRC for treatment of a substance use disorder are also able to receive support for a secondary mood disorder or other mental health issue. PaRC provides specialty groups and medication management by licensed psychiatrists to help individuals who have needs somewhat greater than alcohol and drug dependency alone. However, all persons admitted to PaRC must have a primary chemical dependency diagnosis.
Our teen drug and alcohol rehab program is twelve-step based. The Twelve Steps are effective in helping people lead drug free lives. At PaRC, we don't just introduce 12-step recovery to your teen. We show your teen how to live it.
As an educational consultant who evaluates programs around the country, the most important question I ask is "Would I send my own children there?" In reference to the PaRC's adolescent treatment program, the answer is "yes!"

Level of Care & Services PaRC Offers in Our Teen Drug and Alcohol Rehab:
- Medical Detoxification. Your teen's detox will be safe and comfortable. PaRC is one of the few treatment centers in the Houston area that provides a medical detox for teens.
- Residential Program. Also known as RTC. This is inpatient teen drug and alcohol rehab where your child lives on campus 30-45 days.
- Partial Day Program. Also known as PHP or Day Treatment. This level of care is sometimes used in place of full-time residential treatment. It gives your teen a full-time program but they return home in the evenings.
- Intensive Outpatient Program. Also known as IOP. This level of care usually follows residential teen drug and alcohol rehab or partial day treatment.
