Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an low-cost safe haven and school for young women in Wyoming 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 search to help their girl, families in Wyoming often seek out the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried relocation, counseling, and medication, 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. 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 Wyoming at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy in Alabama was once bright and talented; however, because of poor 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 disdain for what she held dear. The young woman who once sought her parents’ direction, love, approval and acceptance, now depends on her peers to fulfill those needs; she is willing to follow them down a destructive path in life.
Girls from Wyoming who enter our our Teen Challenge for Girls program generally demonstrate attitudes and actions including when they arrive:
- Loss of a positive self-image
- Depression/Suicidal thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
- Alcohol or drug abuse
Usually, prior to choosing CGA, families in Wyoming have sought help from psychiatry and the use of medication. While such 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 precipitated by underlying emotional issues, which must be dealt with having a clear mind. Psychotropic drugs are reduced over time with the care of our physician and the family’s psychiatrist.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be the Right Answer
Usually, teenagers have been spared or delayed the trouble of the full-blown consequences for their poor decisions; sometimes by well-intending adults. For these reasons, teens are not always entirely certain of the need for change in their lives. However, the parent is certain 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 teenagers’ lives before they go on with life habitually living in a self-destructive lifestyle.
