Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for teen girls in Kentucky 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 trying every option in their search to help their girl, families in Kentucky 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 psychologists 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. So, 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 Kentucky at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy in Alabama was once moving toward a bright future; however, as a result of self-destructive choices or substance abuse, her future has been compromised. 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 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 negative path in life.
Girls from Kentucky who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls program generally demonstrate issues and behaviors such these as when they arrive:
- Low self-esteem
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Alcohol or drug abuse
Many times, prior to selecting CGA, families in Kentucky have gotten help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While psychotropic medications can help alleviate the symptoms of deeper issues, we have found significant 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 addressed and solved with a clear mind. Psychotropic drugs are eliminated over time with the care of our physician and the prescribing psychiatrist.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be the Right Answer
Many times, teens have been spared or delayed the heartache of the full-blown consequences for their negative decisions; sometimes by well-intending parents. So, as a result, teenagers are not always convinced 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 intervening in troubled adolescents’ lives before they go on with life habitually living in a self-destructive lifestyle.
Teen Challenge for Girls offers parents an opportunity to daily see the total transformation that can happen in the lives of young women. This total transformation displays itself in positive new ways of thinking marked by:
