Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for young women in Minnesota and from around the country. It works with girls who have sought to fill a void in their hearts through substance abuse, self-harm or negative peer influences.
After trying every option in their search to help their girl, parents in Minnesota often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried psychologists, medications, and rehabs, and getting nowhere. Some have been told by loved ones that it would be a good idea for their girl to get away from home for awhile and from negative influences and peers. 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 usual prospective resident from Minnesota 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 are failing grades. Where there were once athletic, artistic or musical abilities, there is a loss of interest. The young woman who once looked to her parents for direction, love, approval and acceptance, now looks 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 Minnesota who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls boarding school generally demonstrate attitudes and actions such as when they arrive:
- Low self-esteem
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Alcohol or drug abuse
Usually, prior to selecting CGA, parents in Minnesota have sought help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While psychotropic medications can help reduce the symptoms of deeper issues, we have found high success in helping girls get off of them once and for all. All but the most severe psychological 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 supervision 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 negative decisions; sometimes by well-intending adults. For these reasons, teens are not always entirely certain 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 disaster 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 demonstrating 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 become apparent in in positive new ways of thinking marked by:
- Reconciliation with God and family
- Acknowledgement of past wrongs, accepting responsibility and seeking forgiveness
- True confidence in the unique individual they are
- Academic improvements
- Gifts and talents begin to come to the surface
- Becomes a good influence on her peers
- Speaks truthfully and makes the truth known
- Submits to authority
- Begins to have a vision for a productive future
