Many troubled teens struggle to face the fact that they need help, often because they are in denial and simply don't understand the benefits that therapy provides. It is important not to force therapy onto adolescents, and to help educate them on how that therapy can help them improve their life. At Cedar Ridge Academy, we are a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teens that offers a variety of different therapy programs. We strive to help each one of our students understand why they are here, and how our program is going to positively impact their lives. Please give us a call at 866-471-6629 to get started today. Troubled teenage boys and girls often struggle to accept the fact that their harmful behaviors have landed them in a therapeutic program. They feel that the program isn't going to help them at all, and that they are better off without it. Typically, the teen has no idea what the program is all about, and no understanding as to how it can help them. Adolescents are naturally going to go through a stage of denial upon entering therapy, so it is important to be patient with them. Calmly educating them about the therapy program and the numerous benefits it provides can help them to begin to accept their situation, and begin working towards recovery.
