At Cedar Ridge Academy, we are a therapeutic boarding school for troubled teens that addresses all of the issues that young people face today in society, including anxiety. Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns at 866-471-6629.
 
Anxiety is a growing issue among teenagers in our society today. It is thought to be the root cause of many psychological disorders, including specific phobias, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and many others. Often, teens struggling with anxiety find that their anxiety is at its highest while they are in school, because of all of the peer-pressure we see now. This typically leads to academic struggles for the adolescent. If a troubled teen isn't taught how to properly manage his or her anxiety, it can lead to a number of other issues, such as drug or alcohol abuse. Sometimes the feeling of anxiousness can be overwhelming, so much that the boy or girl feels as if they need something to numb these feelings. This is when they turn to drugs or alcohol, attempting to self-medicate. Many times this leads to either a drug or alcohol addiction or legal troubles.
 

Cedar Ridge Academy can help anxious teenagers

At Cedar Ridge Academy, we offer a unique variety of therapy programs to help all of our students conquer all of their issues. We believe that exercise is critical to the healing process of our troubled teens, as it helps to greatly improve their self-esteem and confidence. We have found that many of our students struggling with issues like anxiety often have extremely low self-esteem and self-confidence. That is why we offer our karate therapy program, and our black belt challenge. These physically demanding therapy strategies have proven to be immensely effective in helping our students deal with their anxiety issues. Please call us today at 866-471-6629 if you are ready to get started.
