Teen Help Short Term Programs

Short Term Teen Help Programs

Pros and cons of short-term programs

Help Your Teens BigBoySad-300x224 Teen Help Short Term Programs There are short-term programs that are designed to give families a good foundation of what they are facing with their child’s behavior.

It can offer immediate support and typically continues with a Psychiatric Evaluation with medication recommendations (if needed); an Educational Plan with specific goals and course recommendations (residents will have the option to recover essential credits, prepare for the SAT’s, gain organizational skills, as well); and a wellness plan, with goals for health and fitness, in addition to nutritional recommendations.

Why use a short-term program?

Some parents feel more comfortable experiencing the program and the therapists before making the bigger commitment of 6-9-12 months. A short-term program can help parents realize that their teen is in need of residential – or maybe it’s not the path for them.

The positive side of 45-90 day programs are that they are part of long-term programs so your child doesn’t have to switch facilities.

We frequently caution parents that believe their teen will get the shock value of a wilderness program, and will come home a new person. After spending nearly $20K-30K for a trek in the wilderness, it’s very likely that once your teen is home, within a month’s time, they will be back to their old habits.

Isn’t it better to take that money and invest it into a therapeutic program that will have long-lasting results? This is why investing in a more of a clinical setting of a short term program that offers education, clinical and enrichment program – you will be able to have all the benefits of a therapeutic setting.

Why are short-term programs rarely the answer but can be helpful?

It didn’t take 4-6 weeks for your child to get to where they are today, it’s not going to take 4-6 weeks for them to change this behavior.

Since 2001 we have been helping and educating families from all over the country. We have yet to hear from a family where a summer program has been successful for long-lasting results in behavioral changes.

However in some situations, a solid 60-90-day program has been exactly what a student needed to get them back on the right path or at least give the family a sense of direction.

What do these programs typically cost?

In some cases, PPO insurance may cover a portion of your clinical component of the program. 90-day programs have actually been more cost effective.

This tuition is competitive if not less than wilderness programs that rarely offer an educational component or enrichment programs.

In conclusion, if you’ve been struggling with your teen for over a year and have exhausted your local resources (therapy, out-patient, in-patient, maybe sent them to live with a relative) – and feel like you’re living like a hostage in your own home – or possibly fear for your child’s life, it might be time to consider residential therapy.

Each child and family are different. With most teens, in order to have long-lasting changes, it usually will take 6-9-12 months. However, we completely understand some families want to start with a short-term to ‘dip their toes in the water.’
