Mental illness can be the result of compounding problems and prolonged pressures. Teens may turn to drugs or alcohol to help forget about their responsibilities, or as a way to assert their independence. The easy availability of alcohol or powerfully addictive drugs like methamphetamines make this experimentation common and dangerous.

At Prairie St. John’s, we have experience identifying and treating mental illness and addictions in adolescents. We have helped thousands of teens gain better control of themselves and their lives and helped parents reclaim their child and sense of family.
