Parents of troubled teens often feel helpless and overwhelmed, unsure where to turn to help their children. If this describes you, the good news is that you are not alone! Avery’s House, located in Boise, Idaho, is an adolescent treatment center that provides a home-like and nurturing alternative to a traditional group home for troubled youth.

Avery’s House may be the right option for your teen if they…

  • Attended an inpatient mental health program but still struggle with emotional regulation
  • Participated in outpatient services but require more structure and consistent support
  • May benefit from personalized attention from therapists and clinicians
  • Require time away from home and school settings to develop healthy coping strategies and social skills

What is a group home for teens?

Teen group homes have been around for a long time. They are small groups of teens living together under staff supervision. Group homes offer an alternative space for adolescents who aren’t functioning well in the family environment. The group home setting is intended to help teens who struggle with behavioral health issues by providing structure, social interaction, and life skills development.  Some group homes for teens are state-run and others are private. Families should be aware that the quality of group homes’ services, environments, and staff varies greatly.

Common limitations of traditional group homes

Although traditional group homes offer an alternative for teens who struggle at home, they may not have the resources to address serious behavioral health issues. Some reasons are

  • Lack of Specialized Care: Group homes provide basic care and therapy. However, they often lack the level of expertise required to address severe mental health issues.
  • Less Individual Attention: Group homes are often not equipped to provide the personalized programming and care that troubled teens with severe issues require.
  • Limited Educational Support: Although group homes provide some educational support, they often lack adequate resources to keep your teen on track academically.
  • Basic Life Skills Training: While group homes will assist teens with basic life skills, they are typically poorly prepared to meet the needs of adolescents with significant struggles.

As the parent of a struggling teen, you need to explore all options to choose the best approach for your child. While group homes can provide the basics, treatment centers like Avery’s House can offer intensive and individualized services to meet your child’s needs.
