Rethinking the teen boot camp approach
Caring for a teen with severe behavioral challenges can be emotionally draining, pushing you to your breaking point. You might even become so overwhelmed that enrolling your child in a teen boot camp seems an attractive option.
Most juvenile boot camps, however, miss the mark by relying on aggressive psychological tactics better suited to war zones than therapeutic environments. These programs, known for their overly rigid, military-style methods, aren’t equipped to treat adolescents with significant mental health challenges. Their heavy-handed approach can even make mental health conditions worse.
If you don’t want to settle for this kind of treatment, you need a program that discerns and addresses the root causes of your child’s behavioral problems. Boot camps generally lack this level of intervention.
