Mix Military Discipline With High-Quality Therapy At Liahona Treatment Center

Your teen is struggling. Their behavior ranges from depression and anger to erratic and risk-taking. But your efforts to help them have failed with every attempt. What does your child need? Military discipline and tough love? Do they need emotional support? How do you decide which of the many troubled youth programs will actually help your kid?

Boot Camps Don’t Work

In the ’80s, youth boot camps were a go-to for behavior modification. It was thought that teen boys benefitted from a scare-them-straight approach of tough love and hard work. The results showed that this form of behavior modification resulted in more anger, buried feelings, and relapse into bad behavior.

But Therapy Isn’t Enough on Its Own

Therapy can be an excellent tool for helping teens recognize internal struggles, sources of emotions, and to learn coping tools for managing their behavior. But a lot of parents try this approach and are left disappointed when they find that their teen is still getting into trouble.

Getting Results Through Military Discipline and Therapeutic Support

Research has found that successful behavior modification comes from a combination of discipline and therapy. Liahona Academy is a residential treatment center to combines the positive aspects of military-style youth boot camps and therapy to see a real change in young men.

We offer teens an environment away from their normal triggers. Clear boundaries and an unshakeable routine make room for building trust. Youth work with therapists to uncover the reasons for their behavior and in turn, they learn coping skills. This approach to behavior modification is key to helping teens achieve results that will stay with them into adulthood.
