Managing teen drug abuse and emotional sensitivity
by building emotional maturity so they move forward with
dignity, purpose, and poise
For families who want discernment above enforced constraint
We help youths build emotional maturity to choose commitment over the apathy offered by substance use.
What makes us unique
We offer a scientific approach to teen drug abuse and emotional sensitivity
The transition into the responsibility of adulthood has always been a traumatic experience. Today, however, the demands of life can make this even more traumatic. Youths tend to fear this transition and look for the “easy button” or become overwhelmed and helpless or defiant and self-protective. They stay in the recklessness or irresponsibility of childhood but move with the freedom and opportunities of adulthood. This can keep them in this transition way beyond the period of adolescence and often far into physical adulthood.
Our thrust, therefore, is to recognize their fears of the complexity of their world, not just manage their behavior. We know that they want compassion and assurance rather than coercion or indoctrination. We will give them that, but we also know that they need to be able to take the ball and run with it. So we also give them that. We show them how to get to a stage of mature self-accountability quickly and painlessly. We know that you have given them the guidance and direction. But we also know that today’s reality has more fluctuations and irregularities than any parent can foresee. We see that they need logical and pertinent guidance that allows them to figure out their world. They really want to see and use their own capabilities. We guide them to do just that.
Let us help you if you are a youth (or just think like one). You want control over your life. You want normalcy, not the artificial world of drug abuse or the pain of emotional sensitivity. We will show you how to get that and keep it as you step into the world of adulthood. We will guide you so this transition does not frighten you or cause you to try blindly or feel that you are condemned to be in a perpetual state of recovery. You want your life. We cannot give you that but we can show you how you can get it, and we guide you to do so.

get their lives back!
“ I learned a lot and gained a new sense of identity. Today I uphold continuous learning and growth as a soul to self –discovery. Despite the fact that I am still dealing with legal issues I keep myself intact and deal with these challenges in strong way. Thanks to Prometheum Institute for the guidance in my journey.”
“I got the wakeup call that I needed to get me to change the focus and priorities in my life. The program helped me develop a deeper interest in certain activities. I read several books during the program which helped the types of qualities needed to lead a balanced and meaningful life.”
“I have learned that life is not perfect and we all make mistakes. Now I know that I can use my mistakes as lessons in life, learned from them and move forward. I accept that life is a chaos, and the only thing I can change is my view on life and I choose how I manage myself."
” I wanted to be a good man, I just did not know how. In this program I realized that I never had a chance to grow up and become a mature person. I needed to take responsibility for my life, expand myself and go through some life challenges that I always avoided. Thanks for the guidance and the feedback. Your firm and gentle encouragement made a difference in my life. “
“ I did not see life before the way I see now because I did not understand lots of things about me. The most beneficial change is that I now have a methodology for gaining perspective and assessing and addressing situations. This enables a more objective respond to events.”
"At Prometheum Institute, I learned to see my life and the purpose of life differently. Now I am facing life challenges in a positive way. They never offered a solution to my problem, but instead, helped me develop the tools/skills to recognize and work though it “
”I used drugs that led me to violence, depression and finally crimes and, of course, criminal charges. Referred by my lawyer, Prometheum Institute taught me that in my comfortable life, sheltered from the real world, I was trapped in adolescence. They woke me to my responsibility to grow up and deal with the chaos that is our world. I am 23 now and living life for the first time, no drugs, no depression, no violence. I like it!"
“I was a young professional in my 20’s, depressed and living an unhealthy lifestyle, partying and using marijuana on a daily basis. I was very reluctant to pursue help. However, with the help of Prometheum Institute, and I truly changed my life. Through their innovative techniques I learned to empower myself to explore and extend my life. Thank you.”
”Thank you for waking me up to living, instead of hiding and wasting time in the basement. I have learned and I am continuing to learn the art of being proactive and not reactive in every possible situation I have to deal with, whether it is good or bad. I now have and I will continue to develop stronger self-esteem, and greater mind and a healthier soul. Now I know that it is up to me to become a mature person. I have the tools, and want to use them. “
”I was in high school and I felt totally insecure about what people think of me…..I had my sunglasses on all the time. I started hating myself for who I am and how I feel inside. At Prometheum Institute I learned to see myself realistically, understand the frustration and anger in me. I learned to see life as a journey and challenges as invitations to grow me, not to blame self or others for their presence.”

We see behaviour as the manifestation of how you feel inside. We see that inside feelings are driven by your value systems. So when these are threatened, you can be forced to use coping strategies or support systems that save you… for the moment.
We examine, and teach you to examine and manage all three!
