Christian Schools for Troubled Teens
Christian therapeutic boarding schools will have credentialed staff, accredited academics and enrichment programs as well as spirituality in their program. There are also Christian Residential Treatment Centers, which are the same as RTC’s with a spiritual component.
This is not to be confused with religious schools or programs that usually have mental Christian counselors (which are not covered by insurance), questionable academics and limited (if any) enrichment therapeutic programs.
These programs are typically are less in tuition, however your child will be there (sometimes) twice as long. They also fall under a different umbrella so they don’t have to meet the same standards or regulations as therapeutic boarding schools or residential treatment centers.
There are many excellent spiritual therapeutic boarding schools and residential treatment programs in our country. These are programs that are striving to improve your teen’s mental health through a positive and encouraging setting.
If your teen is not interested in a Christian setting, they will likely not be forced to participate, however will have to be respectful. Forcing your teen will only create more anger and resentful – so finding a teen help program with the spiritual setting, if this is what you are aiming for, could be extremely beneficial.
