Parenting a troubled teen who doesn’t seem to be making improvement at home can result in some hard decisions. When you have come to the conclusion that you must place your child in a temporary, full time therapeutic facility, it can be difficult to determine which one will be the most effective. One of the first options parents begin researching is military schools in Michigan, even though a program a little further from home might ultimately be better. We have found that teens who attend a program in an environment unique to them are more likely to succeed. Some of the reasons for this include :
· New and challenging surroundings where they can be free of triggers and negative associations they are familiar with in their day to day life. Each boy gets the opportunity to start over with a clean slate.
· Full time therapeutic programs offer teens and their parents a valuable opportunity to take a step away from each other while they each focus on their own concerns and issues. Temporary distance can be helpful when rebuilding your relationship, however, it can be nearly impossible to achieve when both parties reside in the same home.
· Programs such as full time rehabilitation centers offer a time of respite for exhausted parents, while their son is coached daily in a safe and therapeutic environment.
