If you’re a parent or guardian, you know how difficult it can be to find suitable treatment options for your troubled teen. However, know that help is just around the corner. At Avery’s House, we offer a specialized alternative to traditional group homes for teens in Boise.

At Avery’s House in Boise, we conduct comprehensive evaluations, diagnoses, and stabilization for a range of mental health conditions, including:

  • Depression & Bipolar Disorder
  • Suicidal & Self-Harm Thoughts
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Bullying & Victimization
  • ADHD or Attention Difficulties
  • Substance Use Disorders
  • Mood Swings & Anger
  • PTSD

What is a group home?

A group home is a supervised residential facility where a small group of teens live together. It provides a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages social interaction and facilitates the development of essential life skills. Group homes are safe havens for teens who can’t live with their families anymore. They can be state-operated or privately owned and can house boys, girls, or both. Quality of care can differ widely between group homes, whether state-run or privately managed. 

Our adolescent treatment center in Boise may be ideal if your teen…

  • Requires one-on-one attention from therapists and clinicians for emotional validation and support
  • Recently completed a psychiatric stabilization program in a hospital or other inpatient setting
  • Tried outpatient options like Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), but needed additional support

Group homes for teens in Boise have their limitations

Although they provide stability, traditional group homes typically don’t have the resources to address the needs of teens struggling with significant behavioral challenges. This is due to:

  • Insufficient Specialized Care: While providing basic care and therapy, traditional group homes may not have specialized programs that meet the needs of those with serious mental health or behavioral challenges.
  • Limited Individual Attention: Most group homes don’t have enough staff to provide individualized attention to teens who require more support. 
  • Inadequate Educational Support: Teen group homes in Boise offer limited academic support, potentially hindering the academic progress of adolescents living there. 

To get the best care for your troubled teen, you need to understand these limitations. But be aware that there are options that might be a better fit for your child’s needs—like Avery’s House! 

Teen residential treatment centers

Residential treatment centers for teens stand apart from traditional group homes mainly due to their higher level of care and tailored treatment options. These programs focus on empowering adolescents with enhanced life skills and effective coping strategies, preparing them to successfully handle challenges in the long term.

Empowering teens to navigate challenging real-life situations

At Avery’s House, we help teens build a solid foundation for lasting behavioral change. We do this through a mix of therapy, getting the family involved, managing medications when needed, providing educational opportunities, and community-based activities.

Family Programming

  • Families learn strategies for helping their troubled adolescent by participating in support groups, family visits, and one-to-one therapy sessions.

Medication Managment

  • While therapy alone may be enough for some individuals, a comprehensive approach combining medication and therapy is often necessary for effective treatment.

Academic Services

  • Teens develop skills that enable them to manage classroom interactions, complete assignments, deliver presentations, and handle academic tasks with greater proficiency.
