Christian Residential Treatment for Troubled Teenage Girls
It might feel like a severe decision, sending your daughter away for behavioral treatment. However, we’ve learned here at Trinity Teen that often, it’s a hallmark in a troubled teen’s life that can turn everything around for the better.
Outpatient programs can help provide much-needed counseling and allow your daughter to practice healthy skills and development. But only a residential treatment program provides the immersive experience that is often needed to help teens recognize and change problematic patterns in their lives.
Benefits of a Residential Treatment Center
- Removes girls from environments that perpetuate harmful behavior: We are biologically wired to value peer approval more during teenagerhood than at any other time in life. Often, simply removing your daughter from potentially harmful peer influences opens up the door for major changes in her life.
- Allows girls to connect with nature: Numerous studies have found that our thoughts and emotions are different when we’re out in nature. We’re less likely to get stuck in self-deprecating musings, and we’re more likely to open up to creative problem-solving, gratitude, curiosity, and wonder.
- Teaches new skills: Learning something new, especially if it’s something difficult, requires quite a bit of time and practice. As girls at Trinity Teen learn how to take care of themselves, handle chores around the ranch, and tend to animals and livestock, they also learn basic life skills that will serve them after they return home, like responsibility, teamwork, and trust.
- Brings down the shields: Teens today are smart. They recognize attempts to get past their guard and they can easily deflect, distract, or hide behind insincere breakthroughs in counseling. However, a residential care facility works differently. Residents are with us 24/7, unable to utilize teenage bravado as a shield. This helps us get down to the root of problems, and facilitate lasting, authentic change.
Participation and Connection with Parents
Residential treatment can be difficult for parents. After all, it’s hard to face that level of separation from your daughter during such a vulnerable time in your relationship. However, our treatment philosophy values participation from parents in order to better guide your daughter into productive pathways. That’s why part of our program includes experiential family therapy, counseling, and exercises that allow parents to learn alongside their daughters. We also provide regular updates, calls and photos for parents to stay connected with their child. Read more about family therapy and parent participation here.
