About Our Assistance in Helping You Find the Right Residential Treatment Center for Your Teen

Finding the right therapeutic school can be a very difficult search. Best Choice simplifies the search by narrowing down the best options based on the child’s needs and the family’s budget.  Once we know what issues need to be addressed and what you want to keep the cost within, we can make some appropriate suggestions.

Rather than choosing a program for you, we offer a list of the best options based on your child’s situation, location, and budget.  We charge you nothing, nor will our assistance cause the rates of any schools to be any higher.  We are the largest such free service in the nation.

We visit and work with hundreds of residential programs and get feedback from parents of students we have already placed there.  Our goal is to help the parent find the absolute best choice for their child.

We have comprehensive knowledge of options for troubled teens, helping families with a child who is experiencing academic failure, is exhibiting inappropriate behaviors, has emotional issues or substance abuse problems, or many other difficulties that may impact their future.

An Ongoing Guide

We’ll help you find the right care, based on your adolescent’s needs.  We can work within your budget and provide helpful ideas.  If you wish, we’ll guide you through the entire process.  We don’t just pass off your information to a program.


We Know the Programs 

Our team knows the environment and ambiance of each program, including which ones will provide the right balanced diet of care, therapy, exercise, education, and personalized support.  We get feedback from parents and students.


The Therapeutic Environment 

We regularly visit the campuses, whether they are in the city or out in the country.  Some are more focused on clinical therapy, while others work holistically with the whole person and others focus on religion.  We’ll tell you about the environment of each.


Recreational Activities

While some programs are better for girls, others are better for boys.  Girls do very well with animal-assisted therapy.  Boys tend to do well with physical activity and adventure, for it is within that environment that boys open up and discuss their issues. 


Teaching Responsibility

Many programs work with the adolescents while they also teach the adolescents how to live, plan for the future, make better decisions, and work.  Teaching responsibility is an important part of taking responsibility for their own future.


Teen Transport Services

We can provide tips and ideas for transporting your teenager (yourself or using a safe service).  To ensure propriety, we do not own nor manage a transport an agency, nor gain financially from any of them.  We have strict standards in regard to transport.

BCAS is not licensed or bonded to provide medical, psychological, or educational advice or recommendations, so we don't. You should consider seeking advice from a licensed professional before making any decision in relation to the placement of any child in a residential program. BCAS assists the admissions departments of schools as a communications contractor, from which it also receives compensation for its work. BCAS is indemnified by each organization and has no control over the actions of such organizations or their staff. BCAS is rarely on-campus of each program, so we do not know everything about what goes on, nor should we be held responsible for such information. We visit each campus periodically and get anecdotal feedback about each program from parents, which aids us in providing helpful options to individuals as they search for the program of their own best choice. By Federal law, we are required to mention that we select programs to represent solely based upon their desire for our assistance, and they pay us a flat fee based on each student placed. We receive no kickbacks for the amount of services the student requires, nor their length of stay in the school or program. Of the schools and programs we mention as options, we do not select them or push any particular ones based on their ability to pay us a higher amount than do other schools or programs. For some low-income individuals, we may mention schools that pay us nothing. Should we learn that a school has done anything inappropriate with students, such that it is being investigated by local or state authorities, we will immediately stop offering that school as an option. However, due to confidentiality agreements, we may not be able to express why the school or program is no longer included in our discussion or options list. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) caution that before you enroll a youngster in a private residential treatment program or any institution or service that we mention, be sure to check it out yourself: ask questions; ask for proof or support for claims about staff credentials, program licensing or accreditation, and endorsements; do a site visit; and get all policies and promises in writing.

Recovery and future avoidance of troubling behavior or actions and whatever effects that may have on the individual's life, their future, their career, their mental or physical health, or their friends and relatives are entirely dependent on each individual student and how they accept and apply the principles they are taught by the program, school or its staff or therapists.
