What Happens In Young Adult Rehab? A Guide for Families

A guide about drug and alcohol rehab for young adults

For many families, when a young adult decides to get help for their alcoholism or substance use disorder, it can be a confusing time. It is not something many people have been through, so it is unfamiliar and scary. But don’t fear! Here at Momentum, we give the support needed to our clients so that they can get the treatment they need and return to their families and break the cycle of addiction.


Young Adults And Substance Abuse

When a child develops an addiction to alcohol and drugs, it can be scary for both the person and their parents. The disease can grab hold of their life and lead to dangerous situations and a lack of control. But substance use diseases are more common than most people know. Federal data states that 5.1 million young adults reported having a substance use disorder. Sadly, though, about 87% of those disorders went untreated.
