Resident therapy is a major financial and emotional decision. There are many options for parents to consider. An educated parent will be able to make the best decision for their teen and their family’s needs.

Parent Choices for Teen Help

Therapeutic Boarding Schools (TBS):

Therapeutic Boarding Schools offer therapy and academics to students. Usually, the student has not done well in a traditional school and is making bad choices that could have an effect on their future. Although many of the students are exceptionally smart, they are not working to their ability. Sometimes peer pressure can lead your child down a destructive path.

Removing them from their environment can be beneficial to them to focus on themselves both emotionally and academically. This can be a scary decision, however sometimes the best one for your teen to be able to have a bright future.

How do you know if you’re ready to take this step? Ask yourself these questions.

Residential Treatment Center (RTC):

Help Your Teens BigGroupTherapy-300x236 Teen Help Parent Options Residential Treatment Centers, similar to a TBS, offer therapy and academics. However Residential Treatment Centers are for children that require more clinical support. Their issues are more specific with substance abuse, eating disorders, self-mutilators, and other behavioral issues.

What’s the difference between a TBS and RTC?

Christian Therapeutic Boarding Schools:

Christian Therapeutic Boarding Schools are the same as therapeutic boarding schools with the addition of a spiritual component. They will have credentialed staff, accredited academics and enrichment programs as well as spirituality in their program. There are also Christian Residential Treatment Centers, which are the same as RTC’s with a spiritual component.

This is not to be confused with religious schools or programs that usually have mental Christian counselors (which are not covered by insurance), questionable academics and limited (if any) enrichment programs. These programs are typically are less in tuition, however your child will be there (sometimes) twice as long. They also fall under a different umbrella so they don’t have to meet the same standards or regulations as therapeutic boarding schools or residential treatment centers.

We are familiar with many reputable Christian therapeutic quality boarding schools that accept insurances. Contact us for more information.

Therapeutic Summer Programs:

Summer programs are a great place to start if your child is beginning to make bad choices or losing their motivation. Finding a good summer program that can build self-confidence can be beneficial to student’s prior starting a new school year.

Please note, summer programs are typically not designed to change behavior that has been going on for a long length of time. However, they can be a great starting point.

Contact us for a FREE CONSULTATION.

Wilderness Programs:

Wilderness Programs or wilderness therapy, are commonly referred to as an outdoor therapeutic and educational experience. There are reputable Wilderness Programs throughout the United States that offer short term assistance to parents that are in crisis with their teens. These programs can be very costly with most starting at $400.00 per day and up.

The immediate impact Wilderness Programs have on many teens can be a positive change, however rarely long lasting according to families that we have spoken with. In most cases a longer term Therapeutic Boarding School is necessary for students after attending a Wilderness Program. The ABC show Brat Camp had generated a lot of interest in Wilderness Programs. For more information please contact us directly.
