Help for Troubled Teens

Benefits Of Residential Treatment Centers For Troubled Teens

A boarding school provides stability – a set routine, academic tutoring, socialization, and intensive therapy – all in a single package. The staff are highly trained professionals with decades of combined experience working with troubled youth involved in a multitude of struggles. They include teachers, tutors, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical staff, activity coordinators, and administrators.

Teachers are ready to work one on one with your teen to get them back on track with school, and even surpass their wildest expectations. Activity coordinators will introduce your child to new hobbies that can help them cope with emotional turmoil and stress. Counselors can help your teen to understand the source of their behavior and give them the tools to move forward.

Best of all, a residential treatment center is secure. You can rest easy knowing where your teen is at all times, and that they are in the hands of well-trained staff that can handle anything. The safe environment will also help them to feel taken care of, removing some of the fear and anxiety that they may feel at home.

We’ll Help You…FREE!

We carefully research and visit hundreds of teen programs, schools, and academies, so we know what they have to offer. We also get feedback from the parents we have worked with who are dealing first-hand with these schools and the work they do with their child.  We will work with you at length, to help you find the best fit for your child, your situation, and your budget.

If you wish to have your child in a program that teaches discipline and/or helps improve your child’s academics, we have many to recommend. Or, if your son or daughter is just beginning the downward spiral or completely out of control, we will direct you to the appropriate program.  We work with dozens of schools and programs that work with teens who have ADD, ADHD, ODD, depression, drug experimentation, drug and alcohol abuse, defiance, rebellion, anxiety learning difficulties, credit recovery, or bad grades.  Whatever your situation, we can connect you with an appropriate program or resources.

Typical sources of funding for parents

Many parents ask us “How do parents afford these programs?” Therapeutic schools can be very expensive, so most families come up with creative means to get their child the right kind of help, such as…

Medical Loans: There are many different lenders that work with these programs. Lightstream and Prosper are the two most popular lenders that parents have worked with in the past.

Retirement and Home Lending: We also encourage parents to look to their local credit union, taking out a second mortgage, cashing in some stocks or bonds, or borrowing from their 401K. None of these are desirable options, but they can help families pay for the right care.

Fundraising: This is likely the most popular way to raise the funds for the right program. Reach out to people you know, asking them to help. You can set up a GoFundMe account to collect funds from friends, colleagues, your church, and family.

Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help you with anything else.
