Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an affordable safe haven and school for adolescent girls in Florida and from around the nation. It works with teens who have sought to fill a void in their hearts through substance abuse, self-harm or negative peer influences.
After exhausting every option in their search to help their girl, families in Florida often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried relocation, counseling, and medication, all without success. Some have been told by loved ones that it would be a good idea for their girl to get away from the negative influences in her life and away from home for awhile. That is when they seek the help of a Christian boarding school for troubled teens, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The typical girl who is enrolled from Florida at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy in Alabama was once moving toward a bright future; however, because of poor choices or substance abuse, her life may end up far different from what everyone hoped for. Where there was once excelling grades, there is academic failure. Where there were once athletic, artistic or musical abilities, there is a loss of interest. The teenage girl who once sought her parents’ direction, love, approval and acceptance, now looks to her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to allow them to lead her down a dark path in life.
Girls from Florida who enter our our Teen Challenge for Girls program typically demonstrate attitudes and actions including when they arrive:
- Loss of a positive self-image
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Substance abuse
Often, prior to selecting CGA, families in Florida have sought help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While such medications can help alleviate the symptoms of deeper issues, we have achieved significant success in weening girls off of them once and for all. All but the most severe mental issues are generally triggered by underlying emotional issues, which must be dealt with having a clear mind. Psychotropic drugs are eliminated over time with the supervision of our physician and the prescribing psychiatrist.
Columbus Girls Academy is the Right Answer
Often, teenagers have been spared or delayed the trouble of the full-blown consequences for their inappropriate decisions; sometimes by well-intending authorities in their life. For these reasons, teenagers are not always entirely certain of the need for a different way of living. However, the parent is certain of the need for intervention, because their teenager is obviously headed for lifelong trouble if such actions persist. The Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy is an intervention program, hopefully helping make a change in troubled teenagers’ lives before they go on with life habitually living in a self-destructive lifestyle.
