Christian Therapeutic Wilderness Program & Boarding School for a Teen in Crisis
We understand the pain parents are going through with a teen in crisis. We’ve been helping families for over a decade to get their teen back on the right track. Perhaps your troubled teen is involved in drugs, alcohol, promiscuous sexual activity, running with the wrong crowd, and simply making poor choices. Possibly you don’t know where to turn because your teen in crisis has been diagnosed with ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder), DTD (Developmental Trauma Disorder), or some other addiction or disorder. Our professionally trained Christian staff can help your troubled teen and set them on the road to recovery.
If you have a teen in crisis you’re probably at the end of your rope and uncertain about their future. Sometimes, a teen in crisis needs a change in environment and extra help to prepare them for adulthood. There is a difference between “normal adolescence” and a teen in trouble. We want you to be aware of the warning signs. At risk teens are more likely to become incarcerated by the Juvenile Justice System. We can help to prevent that from happening.
