Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for teen girls in Texas and from around the country. 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 quest to help their girl, parents in Texas often turn to 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 best for their girl to get away from the negative influences in her life and away from home for awhile. So, they seek the help of a therapeutic boarding school, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The usual prospective resident from Texas 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 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 Texas who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls program typically 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 Texas have sought help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. While psychotropic medications can help reduce the symptoms of deeper issues, we have achieved great success in helping girls get 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 girl’s psychiatrist.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be 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, teenagers are not always convinced of the need for change in their lives. 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 helping make a change in troubled adolescents’ lives before they go on with life habitually living in a dysfunctional lifestyle.
