Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an low-cost safe haven and school for teen girls in Hawaii and from around the nation. It works with teens who have sought to fill a void in their lives through substance abuse, self-harm or negative peer influences.
After exhausting every option in their search to help their daughter, parents in Hawaii often turn to the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried psychologists, medications, and rehabs, and getting nowhere. Some have been told by counselors that it would be best for their girl to get away from home for awhile and from negative influences and peers. So, they seek the help of a Christian boarding school for troubled teens, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The typical prospective resident from Hawaii 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 future has been compromised. Where there was once excelling grades, there are failing grades. Where there were once athletic, artistic or musical abilities, there is a loss of interest. The teenage girl who once looked to her parents for direction, love, approval and acceptance, now depends on her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to allow them to lead her down a destructive path in life.
Girls from Hawaii who enter our our Teen Challenge for Girls program typically exhibit attitudes and actions including when they arrive:
- Low self-esteem
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Substance abuse
Many times, prior to selecting CGA, parents in Hawaii have sought help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While such medications can help reduce the symptoms of deeper issues, we have achieved great success in helping girls get off of them once and for all. All but the most severe mental issues are generally triggered by deeper 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.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be the Right Answer
Many times, adolescents have been spared or delayed the trouble of the full-blown consequences for their inappropriate decisions; sometimes by well-intending adults. For these reasons, teens are not always convinced of the need for a different way of living. However, the parent is convinced of the need for intervention, because their daughter is obviously headed for lifelong trouble if such actions persist. The Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy is an intervention program, hopefully intervening in troubled teenagers’ lives before they become an adult habitually demonstrating a dangerous lifestyle.
Teen Challenge for Girls offers parents an opportunity to daily see the total transformation that can happen in the lives of teenagers. This total transformation can be seen in positive new demeanors marked by:
