Drug addiction and young adults
Everyone knows the expression "It can happen to anyone." Young people, especially, are at risk of drug addiction. This is due to their developing brain, which has not yet matured completely. Many young people have had bad experiences in their lives such as bullying, exclusion or assault. Drugs can help them escape from these problems for a while and can often hinder personal development.
Many of our employees are experts in addictions by experience, having been actively addicted themselves. That is why they can connect with the fellow in a unique way, offering treatment for many different addictions.

Characteristics and symptoms of drug addiction
It is important to distinguish between drug abuse and addiction. This is a complex issue, because the causes of drug addiction are often related to personality, lifestyle and family factors. Drug use causes reduced judgment, mental confusion and sleeping problems. In addition, many drugs enhance the state of mind. For example, dissatisfaction can turn into depression and fear can turn into panic. Feeling sick, nausea and vomiting are also common.
Addiction is a form of chronic disease that causes intense physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Long-term use can damage the brain and internal organs, as well as a person's financial resources. Agonizing symptoms occur when people try to stop using drugs, including pain, fatigue, insomnia and mental stress.
Treatment of mental health issues
At The Grange Youth Clinic we help young people with addiction to overcome their problems and rebuild their positive feelings. Through our treatment, the wall they have built around them slowly breaks down, and they learn to live and function in society in a pleasant way again. We also help teenagers reduce any medication that they already receive for their depression to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
