Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide a low-cost safe haven and school for adolescent girls in Alabama 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 risky activities.
After exhausting every option in their search to help their daughter, parents across the USA are welcome to look into the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. These parents have probably tried psychologists, medications, and private schools, all without success. Some have been told by psychologists 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 make the call for the help of a therapeutic boarding school, like Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girls Academy.
The typical girl who is enrolled at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy was once moving toward a bright future; however, because of poor choices or an uncaring attitude, 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 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 destructive path in life.
Girls from around the USA who enroll in the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy generally demonstrate behavioral and emotional issues including the following when they arrive:
- Low self-esteem
- Self Injurious Behaviors or Thoughts
- Manipulation of family and parents
- Promiscuity/Gender confusion
Sometimes, prior to selecting CGA, these girls have been prescribed behavioral medications. While such medications can help alleviate the symptoms of problems, we have achieved great success in weening girls 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. Such psychotropic drugs are reduced over time with the supervision of our physician and the prescribing 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 bad decisions; sometimes by well-intending parents. For these reasons, teens 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 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 become an adult habitually living in a dysfunctional lifestyle.
Teen Challenge for Girls offers parents an opportunity to daily see the total transformation that can happen in the lives of young women. This total transformation can be seen in positive new ways of thinking marked by:
- Reconciliation with God and family
