Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for teen girls in Indiana 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 daughter, parents in Indiana often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried psychologists, medications, and rehabs, all without success. Some have been told by counselors that it would be best for their girl to get away from the negative influences in her life and away from home for awhile. That is when they make the call for the help of a therapeutic boarding school, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The typical girl who is enrolled from Indiana 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 are failing grades. Where there were once athletic, artistic or musical abilities, there is a loss of interest. The young 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 Indiana 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
Usually, prior to choosing CGA, parents in Indiana have gotten help from psychiatry and the use of medication. While psychotropic medications can help reduce 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 psychological 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 care of our physician and the girl’s psychiatrist.
Columbus Girls Academy is the Right Answer
Usually, teenagers have been spared or delayed the heartache of the full-blown consequences for their inappropriate decisions; sometimes by well-intending authorities in their life. For these reasons, teenagers are not always confident of the need for a different way of living. However, the parent is convinced 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 intervening in troubled teenagers’ lives before they become an adult habitually living in a dangerous lifestyle.
Teen Challenge for Girls offers parents an opportunity to experience the total transformation that can happen in the lives of girls. This total transformation can be seen in positive new ways of thinking marked by:
