Staying In Touch With Your Teen While They’re In Our Therapeutic Program
Life as the parent of teenagers is no walk in the park but nothing prepares you for the upheaval brought about by raising troubled teens. These teenagers are plagued by a variety of emotional and behavioral issues ranging from depression and anxiety to substance abuse, oppositional defiance disorder and developmental difficulties, among others.
Left unchecked, such issues can permeate your work and social lives, leaving you feeling drained and exhausted. Overwhelmed parents often opt to send their struggling teens to boot camps and military schools mistakenly thinking that a regimen of strict discipline will straighten them out. However, this approach can sometimes make things worse. The better option is to send them to a residential treatment center or a therapeutic boarding school.
