For many young adults, making the transition from high school to college is the initial step towards full autonomy. College students get their first true taste of independence, and many begin blossoming into fully functional and self-supporting adults. Others, however, are drawn to the dark underbelly of collegiate life… the party scene. Red solo cups runneth over with lukewarm beer, prescription stimulants are handed out like candy and crowded dorm rooms are rife with experimentation. Some people who have been through college might argue that a brief period of excessive partying is simply a right of passage. Others might have taken the studious route, prioritizing their education over their social life.
At Guardian IOP we understand how difficult it can be to resist temptation during young adulthood. Unfortunately, it is all too easy to transition from simple experimentation to full-blown dependence when chemical substances are so prevalent and peer pressure such a reality. We offer an intensive outpatient treatment program for young adults who are still enrolled in school, but who might be walking a dangerous path as far as substance abuse is concerned. If you or someone you love is enrolled in school and is looking for a flexible and effective program of addiction recovery, Guardian IOP is available to help. today for more information.
