Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an affordable safe haven and school for young women in Nevada and from around the country. It works with teens who have sought to fill a void in their lives through negative peer influences, self-destructive habits, or substance abuse.
After exhausting every option in their quest to help their daughter, families in Nevada often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried counseling, medication, relocation, mental health approaches, and social service interventions, and getting nowhere. Some have been told by loved ones that it would be best for their girl to get away from home for awhile and from negative influences and peers. That is when they seek the help of a therapeutic boarding school, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The usual girl who is enrolled from Nevada 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 disdain for what she held dear. The teenage girl who once sought her parents’ direction, love, approval and acceptance, now looks to her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to follow them down a negative path in life.
Girls from Nevada who enroll in our Teen Challenge for Girls program generally demonstrate attitudes and actions such as when they arrive:
- Low self-esteem
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Substance abuse
Many times, prior to selecting CGA, families in Nevada have gotten help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While such medications can help reduce the symptoms of deeper issues, we have found great success in weening girls off of them once and for all. All but the most severe psychological issues are generally triggered by underlying 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 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 poor decisions; sometimes by well-intending parents. For these reasons, adolescents are not always confident of the need for change in their lives. However, the parent is certain of the need for intervention, because their girl 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 become an adult habitually demonstrating a dysfunctional lifestyle.
