Treatment Schools for Teens – The School Solution

Many parents look forward to summer so they can spend more time with their children and possibly take a family vacation. For parents of troubled teens, however, summer may be a time of increased tensions at home, and the prospect of another school year may not offer any comfort.

Whatever issue your teen is facing, you know their struggle is your struggle and it likely affects the whole family. The solution may be a treatment school, but finding the best treatment schools for teens can be an overwhelming and frustrating process. An educational consultant like Karen Mabie of The School Solution can help you find a treatment school for your teen and help get your family back on track.

What are Residential Treatment Schools for Teens?

Deciding to even research treatment schools for teens can feel overwhelming. You may feel guilty for thinking about sending your child away or frustrated because, as their parent, you may feel like you should help them through every difficulty. However, children face challenges that even their parents can’t help them manage, and a specialized school can offer a solution that will help the whole family. Treatment schools for teens vary from clinical residential centers to therapeutic boarding schools.

Residential treatment schools for teens and preteens offer an educational program within a specialized structure, which will include academic classes, individual and/or group therapy, exercise, recreation and may also include chores and learning life skills such as cooking. In addition to therapeutic boarding schools, you may want to look into wilderness programs or specific addiction treatment programs.

Finding the right treatment schools for teens depends on the needs of your child, the types of services each school offers and what you and your family are ready for, both emotionally and financially. An educational consultant can guide you through the process of finding the school that best fits your child’s needs and your goals.
