Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an low-cost safe haven and school for adolescent girls in Montana and from around the country. It works with girls 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 quest to help their daughter, families in Montana often turn to 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 a good idea 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 usual girl who is enrolled from Montana at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy in Alabama was once bright and talented; 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 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 looks to her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to follow them down a destructive path in life.
Girls from Montana who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls program generally demonstrate issues and behaviors including 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, families in Montana have gotten help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While such medications can help alleviate the symptoms of problems, we have achieved 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 family’s psychiatrist.
Columbus Girls Academy is the Right Answer
Usually, teens have been spared or delayed the heartache of the entire consequences for their inappropriate decisions; sometimes by well-intending authorities in their life. So, as a result, teenagers 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 teenager is obviously headed for lifelong trouble if such actions persist. The Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy is an intervention program, hopefully helping make a change in troubled adolescents’ lives before they go on with life habitually demonstrating a self-destructive 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 displays itself in positive new demeanors marked by:
- Reconciliation with God and family
