Making the decision to send your troubled teen to a full time therapeutic facility can be intimidating and emotional. However, if your son has not responded to any outpatient efforts it is the best thing you can do for him. Finding the right program is important and there are many factors to consider. While you may feel as though you are restricted to residential treatment centers in North Carolina, there are many advantages to selecting an option out of state as well. Some of these include:
- An entirely new environment where teens can do the work they need to without the burden and distractions of previous associations or negative temptations. Each boy has the chance to start over with a clean slate.
- Families can get some much needed distance while they emotionally regroup and take the time to address personal issues and concerns. This supervised time apart is a valuable way to lay new groundwork for an improved relationship, but it is nearly impossible to accomplish while living in the same household.
- Residential treatment programs offer exhausted parents a chance to rest from the constant toll of discipline and power struggles. While parents recover, they can relax knowing that their son is safe and secure in experienced and capable hands dedicated to helping him succeed.
Sundance Canyon Academy has long been a more popular choice among parents of troubled teens than a residential treatment center in North Carolina. Not only do we specialize in helping teen boys recover from behavioral issues such as depression, anxiety, defiance, anger or mental disorders, but we have also designed a unique relationship based therapy method. Unlike behavior modification, which only addresses the symptoms of the problem, our technique encourages boys to find and target the root of it. This approach to healing from the inside out has provided consistent long-term results and a greater number of successful families. We also offer a fully accredited academic program as well as various life skills opportunities in order to ensure that our graduates are as well rounded and as ready for regular life as possible. Our Aftercare program helps families navigate the transition home in order to maintain all the hard work that is done here.
We know that this has been a difficult path so far and we want you to know that we are here to help. We have the same goal you do; to help your child turn his life around and become the capable and caring young man you know he can be. Although it is understandable that you would want to place your son in a residential treatment center in North Carolina in order to keep him close to home, remember that the location of a facility is less important than making sure that it is safe and effective. Utah has the strictest laws in the nation regarding teen help programs and parents throughout the country are anxious to place their troubled teens in facilities here. We take pride in exceeding the state’s already comprehensive standard requirements.
We are confident that we can help you determine the best therapeutic solution for your son. Please contact us today at 866-678-2425.
