Treatment of cannabis addiction

Functioning in society again

At Yes We Can Youth Clinics, we help young people, whom we call 'fellows', to overcome their cannabis addiction and to live and function in society again in a meaningful and fulfilling way. We teach young people how to slowly tear down the wall they have built and regain their strength.

Learning with and from each other

During group sessions and sharing daily sports and outdoor activities, the fellows with a cannabis addiction and other mental health issues learn with and from each other. They work on personal goals, give each other feedback and practise what they have learned. We also pay much attention to the fellows' families through our Family Coaching & Counselling programme. Our team comprises therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, medical staff, expert-by-experience counsellors and youth coaches. They all stand next to the fellows, offering guidance and support. They also provide hope and encourage fellows to stick to the intensive treatment.

Working on a new perspective after a cannabis addiction

Our treatment therapy focuses on the problems underlying the addiction (What is the underlying pain?). It uses a step-by-step model to help these fellows work on gaining a new perspective. We do not shy away from confrontation. By holding up a mirror, we can help the fellows in their process. The expert-by-experience counsellors have had similar problems. They know better than anyone how to reach the fellows. 

Group sessions, sports and games, cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational interviewing are integral to the treatment. The group dynamics, the team's commitment and involvement, and the realisation that they are not alone help the fellows achieve lasting behavioural change.

A typical day for a fellow in recovery

We offer a pervasive programme to all of our fellows. Although every day is different, we've created the schedule below to give you an idea of what a typical day looks like for a fellow in recovery at Yes We Can Youth Clinics.
