Nexus Teen Academy


The Valley's Leading Teen Substance Abuse Treatment Facility

Navigating how to handle discovering your child’s use of drugs and alcohol can be extremely challenging. Teen Rehab is sometimes used as a catchall term to describe many different levels of care available to families.
Those levels include:
  • Teen Counseling
  • 12-step recovery groups/other support groups
  • Outpatient teen rehab
  • Teen Residential Treatment
Studies have proven that teens who complete residential treatment are more likely to have sustained positive outcomes over those who begin to address substance use disorder at any of the other levels of care. At Nexus, we take pride in addressing the root causes of the teens masking their emotions with substances. Furthermore, we educate them about the scientifically proven effects of drugs and alcohol on the developing brain. Addressing their choices at the emotional, physical, and intellectual levels empowers them to leave our facility better equipped to make radical changes to their behavior.
