Once you have determined that a full time therapeutic facility is the best solution for helping your troubled teen, it can be intimidating to choose the best one. Faced with a wide array of options, many parents start by researching military schools in Maryland because of the convenient distance. However, we have found that more teens show greater improvement when they attend a program in another state for several reasons. Some of these include :
· Providing new and challenging surroundings where teens can be far from the burden of negative associations and social groups. Each teen has the opportunity to start over with a clean slate while they work on making positive life changes.
· Allowing an opportunity for both parent(s) and teens to take a step away from each other in order achieve the temporary distance they need in order to work on individual struggles and challenges.
· Full time rehabilitation programs such as military schools offer much needed respite for parents. While they re-strengthen themselves emotionally, they can be reassured that their teen is immersed in an environment that is both safe and therapeutic.
