The Most Effective Treatment For Troubled Teens From Chandler, AZ

When your teen comes to stay at Cedar Ridge Academy, several aspects of our program will play a key part in helping them recover from the problems they have been dealing with.  

First, we seek to provide both individualized therapeutic and peer support to the troubled teens we treat.

What Separates Cedar Ridge Academy from Other Summer Programs for Troubled Teens?

Another important part of our program is our karate instruction. Here By teaching karate to troubled teens, we are able to build important life skills and have them open up more to the treatment process.  Both of these factors can be very helpful to troubled teens.

Why Karate?

As to why we, at Cedar Ridge Academy, include karate into our therapeutic curriculum, there are several practical reasons. First, scientific studies have shown that traditional karate is effective in reducing aggressive behaviors. This makes karate a perfect application in the treatment of troubled teens who are prone to violent or aggressive outbursts - an issue that often-frustrated, out of control teens tend to struggle with.

In addition to being great for blowing off steam, karate is also known to help with cognitive enhancement, specifically, in helping teens develop focus, increase their productivity, and even assist those with nonverbal learning disabilities. Moreover, this specific area of development makes karate a very significant tool in treating teens with ADD/ADHD or even Obsessive Compulsive Behaviors.

Dr. John J. Ratey has conducted extensive research proving how exercise contributes to brain development, and in particular, how ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms are relieved by highly structured exercise – such as the Shotokan Karate taught at Cedar Ridge Academy Therapeutic Boarding School.

“Paradoxically, one of the best treatment strategies for ADHD involves establishing an extremely rigid structure. Over the years, I’ve heard countless parents offer the same observation about their ADHD children: Johnny is so much better when he’s doing taekwondo...

...He wasn’t doing his homework, and he was angry, difficult, and problematic; now his best qualities have come out.” (Spark: the revolutionary new science of exercise and the brain – John J. Ratey – Eric Hagerman – Little, Brown – 2008 – pg 147)

Some early history of Chandler, AZ.

In 1891, Dr. Alexander John Chandler, the first veterinary surgeon for the territory of Arizona, bought 80 acres of land from the federal government south of Mesa in the Salt River Valley. Dr. Chandler studied the relatively new science of irrigation engineering and was instrumental in building an early system of canals in what was then an arid desert.
By the turn of the century, Dr. Chandler owned an 18,000 acre ranch. Dr. Chandler sought the help of planners and architects in subdividing his ranch and drawing up a townsite map. He then advertised nationally the sale of Chandler Ranch sites. On May 17, 1912, Dr. Chandler opened the townsite office. Excursion trains on the newly completed Arizona Eastern Railroad brought 300 speculators who spent $50,000 for land that day.
