Lying and manipulating

A little white lie, but is that really the case? Young people with an addiction or a psychological problem often do not see a way out. The need for their substance or behaviour or for keeping up appearances prevails over the desire to be open and honest.

Causes of lying and manipulative behaviour

Once young people have a need for drugs, this controls them in such a way that all other feelings such as love, truth and honour are pushed into the background. The need for drugs, gaming or (not) eating in an eating disorder is just as important to them as breathing. The disease has them under its spell. Nothing else is important anymore. In addition, lying and manipulating can also be transboundary if the young people have a trauma or other psychological problem. They are in a downward spiral, where they themselves can no longer come out of.

Treatment of lying and manipulative behaviour

If a teenager or young adult starts to show structural forms of behavioural problems and this will therefore take on destructive forms, there is something going on below the surface. This situation requires adequate and targeted interpretation, coaching and guidance. The Yes We Can Youth Clinics team can map these behavioural problems for and with the young person himself, and then together look for ways and possibilities with which he or she can leave his or her destructive life behind forever and start working on a wonderful, bright future. Yes We Can Youth Clinics strives to reduce any medication that the teenagers or young adults already receive to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
