If you’re in Twin Falls and caring for a troubled teen, you know how difficult it can be to find treatment. With a dizzying array of options, how do you choose quality care for your child? The good news is that excellent treatment is just a short trip away—in Boise. At Avery’s House, we provide a specialized alternative to traditional group homes.

Our adolescent treatment center might be a good fit if your teen…

  • Would benefit from personalized attention instead of a cookie-cutter approach
  • Recently completed an inpatient or hospital psych stabilization program
  • Needs more support and structure than outpatient programs can offer
  • Needs a break from familiar surroundings to focus on recovery

What is a group home for teens?

A group home for troubled teens is a place adolescents with severe behavioral or mental health challenges go when their problems become so acute they must live apart from their families for a while. Staff members, including mental health professionals, work closely with these teens, preparing them to return to their communities.

There are group homes just for boys and others just for girls. There are also co-ed options. Whether operated by the government or privately run, the quality of care varies widely from one facility to another.

Limitations of traditional group homes for troubled teens

While traditional group homes are usually good at providing a stable environment, they’re not well equipped to meet the needs of teens struggling with severe mental health, behavioral, or substance abuse issues. Here’s where they fall short:

  • Lack of Specialized Care: While group homes offer basic care and therapy, they lack the resources to treat severe mental health or behavioral conditions.
  • Less Individual Attention: Group homes usually don’t have enough clinical staffing to provide the intensive, one-on-one care required to successfully treat adolescents with more complex issues.
  • Limited Educational Support: Traditional homes typically don’t provide adequate educational support, which means students risk falling behind academically while in these programs.
  • Basic Life Skills Training: While most group homes offer basic life skills, these are no substitute for the advanced training teens with severe challenges need to successfully reintegrate into society.

Understanding the limitations of traditional group homes ensures that you won’t waste time and money on a program that falls short when it comes to treating your troubled Twin Falls teen. Instead, consider a specialized treatment center such as Avery’s House.

Residential treatment centers

Unlike traditional group homes, residential treatment centers provide adolescents with the skills and coping strategies they need to manage their difficulties long term. Here’s what they receive:

Specialized Therapeutic Interventions

Unlike group homes, which offer only bare-bones treatment, residential centers provide an array of specialized options, including individual, group, and family therapy sessions.

Tailored Treatment Programs

Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, residential centers customize treatment to fit every teen’s unique needs

Educational Support

Residential treatment facilities offer robust educational support, ensuring that your child’s academic needs won’t be neglected while in treatment.
