Christian Help for My Troubled Teen

How do you know when your teen needs residential therapy?

Are you searching for Christian teen help for your troubled teen?

Help Your Teens BigstockFrustratedParents-300x199 Christian Help for My Troubled Teen Be an educated parent, especially when it pertains to Christian settings.

When a parent calls P.U.R.E. they are usually surfing the internet and confused by all the fancy websites, terminology they are now learning about (RTC, TBS, Wilderness, transport services and more) and wondering — is this really want my child needs?

The fact is, in many situations you have a good kid that is now making some really bad choices and you never in a million years thought you would be facing this day.

None of us did. Yet here we are.

That’s the best part – you’re not alone.

There are many residential therapy schools and programs in our country, probably because there are many families in need of help today. Although there are many good programs and schools in our country – there are also many that you need to be skeptical of – as well as many sales people or placement specialist, that don’t always have your child’s best interest first. Or you may stumble on some professionals that believe everyone needs to attend a wilderness program before they get actual long-lasting help.

Many families are interested in Christian Boarding Schools for teen help. This is understandable, especially when you are a family of faith. We caution parents to be sure the school/program is considered a therapeutic boarding school or residential treatment center that offers a spiritual setting – rather than a religious program/school. With this, you will likely still be able to use your health insurance, since they should have credentialed therapists as well as having accredited academics.

When will you know it’s time for residential therapy?

  1. Have you exhausted all your local resources? From using local therapy to extending into outpatient teens can be easily shut-down. Although we know that many times it’s difficult to get a teen to open up to therapist – or even attend a session, parents need to know they at least tried. When in residential therapy, the entire program evolves around their emotional wellness, 24/7. Being removed from their negativity – helps tremendously.
  2. Living with a relative. Some families have attempted to move the troubled teen to a relative. Again, sometimes this works – and others it can be a band-aid, however it can help you make that decision that you have exhausted your local resources before you decide to choose residential.
  3. Is your teen a danger to themselves or other people (you)? Has your child become violent towards you or themselves? This is when you know it’s time to start researching for residential therapy. It’s not working at home.
  4. Do you feel like you are hostage in your home by their behavior? Do you feel like you are walking on egg shells? Being careful about what you say or how you act for fear they may become explosive? Again, this is a red flag it may be time for residential therapy.

Keep in mind, there are different types of residential therapy. P.U.R.E. can help educate you on what may best fit your child’s individual needs without placing them out of their element.

Residential therapy is a major emotional and financial decision. Contact us today for more information.
