Teen Challenge programs for girls like Columbus Girls Academy (Alabama) can provide an reasonably priced safe haven and school for young women in South Carolina and from around the country. It works with teens who have sought to fill a void in their hearts through negative peer influences, self-destructive habits, or risky substances.
After exhausting every option in their search to help their daughter, parents in South Carolina often turn to the Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy. They have usually tried relocation, counseling, and medication, 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. That is when they make the call for the help of a therapeutic boarding school, like the Teen Challenge’s Columbus Girl’s Academy.
The typical girl who is enrolled from South Carolina at the Teen Challenge Girl’s Academy in Alabama was once moving toward a bright future; however, as a result of self-destructive choices or substance abuse, her future has been compromised. Where there was once excelling grades, there is academic failure. 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 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 South Carolina who register for our Teen Challenge for Girls program typically 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 selecting CGA, parents in South Carolina have gotten help from psychiatry and the prescription of medication. 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 mental issues are generally precipitated by deeper 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 family’s psychiatrist.
Teen Challenge for Girls May Be the Right Answer
Usually, adolescents have been spared or delayed the trouble of the full-blown consequences for their inappropriate decisions; sometimes by well-intending adults. So, as a result, adolescents are not always convinced of the need for a different way of living. However, the parent is convinced of the need for intervention, because their girl is obviously headed for disaster if such actions persist. The Teen Challenge Columbus Girls Academy is an intervention program, hopefully intervening in troubled teenagers’ lives before they go on with life habitually demonstrating a dysfunctional lifestyle.
Teen Challenge for Girls offers parents an opportunity to daily see the total transformation that can happen in the lives of teenagers. This total transformation displays itself in positive new ways of thinking marked by:
- Reconciliation with God and family
- Acknowledgement of past wrongs, accepting responsibility and seeking forgiveness
- True confidence in the unique individual they are
- Getting caught up in school
- Gifts and talents begin to excel again
- Becomes a good influence on her peers
- Speaks truthfully and makes the truth known
- Submits to those in authority
