Other Troubled Teen Programs
Wilderness Therapy Programs
Wilderness programs are the use of wilderness expeditions for the purpose of therapeutic intervention. There are many approaches and models for these therapy programs. Groups of persons either make a journey through the wilderness or live in an area or region that is off the beaten path for an extended period of time. Generally, participants are guided towards self-reliance, self-discipline, and self-respect.
Boot Camps for Troubled Teens
Boot camps are designed to help troubled boys and troubled girls to gain self-control, improve respect for authority figures, exercise self-discipline, realize the value of hard work, and gain an appreciation for ceasing their negative emotional outbursts (stop reacting to normal life circumstances with verbal or physical assault.)
Most boot camps for troubled teens are successful with short term discipline and scare tactics, especially the part that involves “self-control,” and “respect for authority.”
Christian Therapeutic Programs
This is where good Christian recovery programs can really help. Our troubled teen programs assist by focusing on spiritual cleansing and renewal – starting from the inside and working outward toward a salvation and rebirth of body and soul. Using individual counseling and a Bible-based structure, troubled teens are reached with a low-pressure, one-on-one program designed to help get them back together with their families as soon as possible.
