The decision to place your troubled teen in a full time therapeutic program can be daunting and determining which facility will best address his needs is intimidating. You want to be certain that the location you choose is going to give your son the best chance of success. While you may feel as though you are limited to boot camps in Rhode Island in order to keep your son close to home, we urge you to consider a program a little further from home. We have found that many teens show greater improvement when they are immersed in an outside environment for several reasons, including:
· New and challenging surroundings where struggling teens can leave behind the burdens and challenges associated with familiar triggers and negative associations. Each boy is able to begin the healing process with a clean slate.
· Parents and teens are able to get the temporary distance they need in order to individually lay the groundwork for a renewed relationship. Separation can be helpful in the initial stages of this process, but it is almost impossible to achieve when living circumstances force daily interaction.
· Therapeutic programs offer parents some much needed respite from the emotional toll of raising a troubled teen. While parents recover, their son is supported in a safe and encouraging environment where he can directly address his day to day challenges and learn to make more positive decisions.
These are only a few of the reasons why parents looking for boot camps in Rhode Island have ultimately selected Liahona Academy as the best option for their teen. Established in 2001, Liahona Academy’s location in scenic southern Utah is the ideal setting for their proven curriculum of therapy, academics and healthy outdoor work and play. Each boy works one on one with trained therapists and counselors in order to craft a plan of care that is unique to him and his needs.
