Rethinking the teen boot camp approach
Living with an adolescent with severe behavioral issues can be exhausting, pushing you to your breaking point. In fact, it can stress parents so greatly that they consider placing their child in a teen boot camp. However, these programs, known for their strict, military-style methods, are not equipped to handle adolescents with significant mental health challenges.
This is where most juvenile boot camps miss the mark, relying on crude psychological tactics better suited for war zones than therapeutic settings. They can even make mental health conditions worse.
If you don’t want to settle for such an inadequate treatment approach, you must find a program that tackles the issues underlying your child’s problematic behavior. This is something you’ll never get in a boot camp. At Avery’s House, we’re committed to creating lasting change by understanding each teen’s unique needs, providing empathetic support, and delivering exceptional care.
