A stay in a center can help get your teen back on track to a healthy, productive future. Residential treatment centers are very successful in turning around a struggling teen. Within the first 3-months, you may begin to see that person you know and love emerge again.
Without the structure and guidance from a center, your young adult can head down a path of personal and family destruction. Residential treatment for your youth may make a profound difference to the future of your child and your family, and it should be considered if all other methods of help have failed.
What is the difference between a residential treatment center and other methods of help?
Residential treatment centers in Montana are different from hospitals and similar facilities in that they are not strictly clinical. However, they will have a clinical part to them in that they offer counseling by highly trained members of staff. Along with counseling programs such as therapy, communication and other skills are taught and the teen gets some free time for themselves.
The day of the teen will be structured and this helps them to get into a routine. Feelings of safeness and belongings develop as the result of routine and this will help the teen deal with life much easier. While some of the centers may be under strict supervision, lock, and key, the majority, are not and there are different treatment centers for different situations and needs.
