Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for young women in Massachusetts and from around the nation. It works with girls 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 quest to help their girl, families in Massachusetts often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried counseling, medication, relocation, mental health approaches, and social service interventions, 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 make the call for the help of a Christian boarding school for troubled teens, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The typical prospective resident from Massachusetts 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 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 disdain for what she held dear. The young girl who once looked to her parents for direction, love, approval and acceptance, now has sifted to her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to allow them to lead her down an alternate and dangerous path in life.
Girls from Massachusetts who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls boarding school generally 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, families in Massachusetts have gotten help from psychiatry and the use of medication. While such medications can help reduce the symptoms of problems, we have found high success in helping girls get off of them once and for all. All but the most severe mental issues are generally precipitated 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 family’s psychiatrist.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be the Right Answer
Usually, adolescents have been spared or delayed the trouble of the entire consequences for their bad decisions; sometimes by well-intending parents. So, as a result, adolescents are not always confident 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 teenagers’ lives before they go on with life habitually demonstrating a self-destructive lifestyle.
