College Student Addiction Treatment

When we become parents, we begin to worry about our children. When they’re young, we worry if they are doing well in school, or have found something they enjoy doing. As our children age, our worries then turn into concerns related to adulthood. Do they feel fulfilled by their work? Are they happy with their life?

As our children grow, we hope that they make good choices regarding their health and wellbeing. Having a child go to college is an exciting, yet stressful event. Recognizing their achievements can be wonderful. However, worrying about your child’s drinking behavior can be distressing. 

Partying at college has become a norm in our society. Television shows and movies portray college drinking and drug use unrealistically, which can lead to misconceptions when students attend college. So how can we tell when our child’s drinking behavior has become a concern?

For more information about college student addiction treatment, we invite you to call (855)495-1063. Evolve Indy is an addiction treatment facility in Indianapolis, IN, that provides addiction treatment for college students in our area.

College Student Drug Use Statistics

One of the main concerns that come up when we talk about college students is binge drinking. Binge drinking is classified as five or more drinks for males in two hours, and four or more drinks for females at the same time. This threshold can easily be met with drinking games in less than two hours. High-intensity drinking is used to refer to individuals who consume more than twice the amount of alcohol described for binge drinking.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reported that about 53% of college students reported drinking in a one-month period, with approximately 33% self-reporting binge drinking. 

A study of college students’ substance uses in 2012 showed that the most common illicit drug used was marijuana. This study estimated that 37% of participants in the study reported using illicit substances in the past year. 19% of these students reported that they used drugs other than marijuana. 

This study also showed that 28% of the students who took the survey reported being “moderately concerned” about their drug or medication use, and having some interest in intervention. This is an important fact to be aware of and can be used to help guide prevention and intervention efforts for college students.

Why Choose Rehab for College Students

Why is College Student Addiction Common?

So, what are some of the factors that contribute to college students developing a substance abuse disorder? A large piece of the puzzle is their exposure to alcohol and drugs. Finding access to drugs and alcohol can be reasonably easy across college campuses.

The ease of access, combined with the increased independence, sets college students up to be in situations where they need to make their own decisions. During high school, students may have curfews and other expectations for their behaviors established by their parents or guardians. For many, this structure or guidance is not present in a college setting. 

Some students may find that the change in their daily routine has an impact on their drug and alcohol use. For example, choosing to have classes later in the afternoon compared to the mornings could contribute to a student’s use of drugs and alcohol.

If you are worried about a college student and are looking for rehab for college students, please call (855) 495-1063 to speak with an Evolve Indy representative about our Indiana addiction treatment programs.

Are There Rehabs for College Students?

Thankfully, addiction treatment centers have programs designed specifically for college students. These programs recognize the unique factors that contribute to college students’ challenges in recovery while attending college.

This can include an inconsistent structure, being around drugs and alcohol, coping with emotions related to academic studies, and other mental health struggles that students may be struggling with.  

Treatment programs for college students also take their schedules into consideration, recognizing that their schedules change frequently, and their need to study for exams will vary throughout the semester. 

Addiction treatment programs will meet with the student, and see if there are any other mental health concerns that they are struggling with. Drugs and alcohol can easily be used to mask or cope with various mental health struggles. For the best long-term results, individuals struggling with an addiction and a mental health concern must receive treatment for both when they are in rehab.

I don’t even know where to begin. Addiction doesn’t care what family or person it chooses to effect and it’s definitely a long and tough journey not only for the addict but also for the loved ones included. My first call was to Marty and he immediately arranged a force to go and talk to my son. Guided me in the process and made it easy during a rough time in our lives. Tyson took time away to welcome my son to the Evolve house at midnight bc it was the only flight we could get him back due to Covid and he welcomed my son and never once looked upset that it was late and helped him get set up and took time from his personal life to do that for us. Whitney whose a amazing counselor and my son loved her. There is a millions things and examples of what each of them did to help take care of my son through the process but when you walk into Evolve you feel calm, like family and mostly loved. When you meet Joe you just immediately feel his genuineness and his heart for everyone. My son loved him and his choice of music 😂 Mike Reynolds who also was amazing to my son and I can’t thank him enough. But mostly my biggest thanks and appreciation goes to Brian Kendrick. For multiple reasons, when my son left Evolve and was in sober living he still took my son under his wing and treated him like his own. When we went through relapse he contacted each of us on the daily.

How to Find Addiction Treatment for College Students

There are several ways that college students can find treatment for substance abuse. One option would be to speak with their Primary Care Physician. Your doctor will ask you about your use, your concerns, and your goals. Your doctor will be able to talk to you about the different levels of care, and which would be a good fit for you.

A second option would be to contact your insurance company by calling the number provided on your insurance ID card. Based on your location, your insurance provider should be able to provide you with some referrals that are in-network. They should also be able to give you an idea of what your out-of-pocket cost would be as well. 

A third option would be to speak with a counselor at your college counseling center. While your college counseling center will likely not provide addiction treatment, they would be aware of local treatment facilities that are able to provide addiction treatment for college students.
