Where Families Find Support & Solutions

Help For Troubled Teens With The School Solution

If you are struggling with a troubled teen that has had a negative change in academics accompanied by other problematic behaviors they may need more intensive and focused help during the spring and summer months. The School Solutions offers some of the best connections to troubled teen treatment options for teenagers presenting academic as well as behavioral issues at the end of 2020.

Parents who are beginning to see the signs and symptoms of issues with their teens and addiction, social emotional and likely academic problems, have an excellent opportunity to get their kids back on track during the upcoming months, as the whole world tried to heal.

This year has been hard on teens: Their regular routine vanished, and their teen time was no longer filled with school, homework, extra-curricular activities, and all the things that usually kept them busy and out of trouble. But when you have a teenager who has been presenting with significant issues that are not going away they must be addressed. The good news is that there are actionable steps that you can take to make sure that moving forward there is a positive learning experience for your teenager, rather than becoming the gateway to a dangerous descent into problematic behavioral habits.

 You can begin the process of researching and connecting with the best possible fit for your teenager with The School Solution. Residential treatments centers, therapeutic boarding schools, wilderness programs, summer schools, and even volunteer and exchange programs offer a multitude of benefits, such as:

Smaller sizes
One to one ratio of personalized attention
Greater daily supervision
Rites of passage & ceremonies
Emotional growth and coping skills
Self-confidence & Self esteem building
Positive behavior feedback

The programs found with the help of The School Solution can emphasize a teenager’s responsibility, self-examination, and learning positive skills that can help a troubled or behaviorally challenged teen better perform in school, with peers as well as with family members.  These highly structured and supervised environments enable troubled teens to safely explore their issues and build self-confidence and self esteem- while helping with grade and academic recovery.

Teen Transformation: Help For Troubled Teens

With the help of The School Solution, teens can receive the kind of guided support and lasting connections they need to be successful and productive with transformative treatment programs in 2021. A teenager struggling with mental health, emotional or motivation issues is uniquely challenged in a different way than a teen struggling with substance abuse or childhood traumas.  Either way, their familiar home environment makes it difficult for them to continue their growth, transformation or progress.

During one of the most critical stages of their lives some students require additional experiences that are imperative in developing resiliency, knowledge, and skills that can serve them throughout adulthood. Because of their brain’s ability to be molded during this period, the right interventions for teens can help them overcome the effects of many forms of earlier trauma. Living in a new community with a supportive and structured environment allows teens to mature with a solid foundation, fostering a move towards positive independence. The balance of freedom and structure found with teen treatment enables students to make their own choices within a constructive framework and to create goals that will ensure successful transitions into adulthood and out of the troubling situations.

The School Solution: Teen Treatment In 2021

The School Solution provides consultation and placement services for families with a child who is struggling in his or her current academic environment. While a wide variety of schools and programs exist, finding the best environment to address your child’s individual needs can be daunting. This work is our specialty.

Many recent studies suggest that teenagers who are depressed, defiant, or under immense emotional distress simply cannot perform well at school – or in life-without help. If teenagers are struggling with friends or home life, there’s a good chance that they cannot function properly in school. In order to address academic problems, and school solutions, parents usually have to intervene in emotional areas first.

There are many choices to support a range of social, emotional, clinical and learning needs. The key is finding the place with the appropriate support for your troubled teenager. Let The School Solution help you. We have the professional expertise to help you make wise, well-informed decisions that can positively affect your child’s future at this crucial time.

You can have peace of mind in knowing that Karen Mabie is affiliated with the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA). Any IECA member can be trusted to work with your family, address your child’s needs, and help find a proper solution and program. Not to mention, Karen Mabie has many professional affiliations and memberships–such as Learning Disabilities Association, National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, and more–so you can rest assured you are in good hands!


Karen was immensely helpful when my ex-wife and I were confronted by a terrible problem — our very bright and engaging son had dropped out of high school, was using marijuana, and was drifting in life.
