Why Should Parents of a Troubled Teenage Girl Consider The Services of a Christian Boarding School?
Christian Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled girls are christ-centered facilities that provide mental and behavioral treatment and emphasize the teachings of Jesus in their treatment curriculum. These specialized facilities also function as a residential treatment facility that provides 24-hour rehabilitative treatment for teenage girls struggling with substance abuse and self-harming issues. These therapeutic boarding schools have become a popular choice among Christian parents of troubled teens who want their daughter to undergo treatment at a facility that reflects their love and devotion to God.
What are Christian Boarding Schools for Troubled Girls?
Troubled teens have become a rising demographic over the last few decades. Thanks to factors such as the opioid epidemic, teens abusing alcohol in unprecedented numbers, and suicide becoming the third-leading cause of death among those under the age of 21, residential treatment is an industry that is more relevant than ever.
But while there is a seemingly endless list of treatment programs for parents of out-of-control teenage girls to consider, there aren't nearly as many therapeutic boarding schools that offer christ-centered treatment.
A similar disparity can also be said about many christ-centered treatment programs that promote the tenants and teachings of the Bible. Many of these facilities have no shortage of professing the word of God but fail to meet the therapeutic requirements that troubled teenage girls desperately need to achieve rehabilitation.
For whatever reason, it seems as though the behavioral industry has set a false narrative that says treatment and fundamental teachings of Christ must be mutually exclusive. At Clearview Girls Academy, we have proudly stood in defiance of that notion for over 25 years.
Clearview Girls Academy is a one-of-a-kind facility that provides cutting-edge treatments, such as cognitive-behavioral and equine therapy, without losing our core message that Jesus is the only answer. We encourage but never force students or family members, or anyone else to believe the Bible's teaching. Yet, with no apology, we remain steadfast in encouraging our students to embark on their own journey and relationship with God.
What Kind of Issues Does A Christian Boarding School for Troubled Girls Treat?
While it all depends on the particular program, most Christian boarding schools for troubled girls treat many of the same out-of-control behaviors and mental health issues. Issues may include (but not limited to):
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
- Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD)
- Experimental drug abuse
- Failing in academics
- Low self-esteem
- Eating disorders
- Premature sexual activity
- Hanging out with the wrong crowd
- Lack of motivation
- Lack of empathy or compassion towards others
- Any other type of behavioral disorder that is indicative of being at-risk
Why Should Parents Consider a Christian Boarding Schools for Troubled Girls?
For any parent who wants to see their child grow in the relationship with Christ, sending them to a reputable Christian therapeutic boarding school like Clearview Girls Academy should be a no-brainer.
There are plenty of agnostic and atheistic treatment options to choose from throughout the U.S. But for parents of a troubled teenage girl who hold God above all else, a program that offers both professional psychiatric treatment and teachings of God is quite literally an answered prayer come to life.
Re-establishing Forgotten Faith
Christian boarding schools are a popular choice of parents who long for their child (who, over the years, have strayed from the path of Christ) to re-establish a connection with God.
Nonetheless, we at Clearview strongly recommend that parents not send their child to a facility where Christ is forced upon the students. For a genuine relationship with God to occur, we believe the student must choose for themselves, albeit with the encouragement and guiding hand of the staff.
Like traditional therapeutic boarding schools, Christian boarding schools generally treat teenage girls who struggle academically and typically have behavioral issues outside of the home.
Rather than being the sole focus of a student's education, academics serve as one part of a complete, well-balanced body of healing, studying scripture, and routine psychotherapy sessions with a licensed professional. This well-balanced curriculum of academics and doctrine enables teenage girls to grow in faith while staying on track in school and growing and changing in harmful areas.
The most reputable Christian boarding schools offer top-tier academic restoration for female students who have fallen behind.
While surrounded by classmates who are also in need of academic and behavioral restoration (rather than clumped in the mix with classmates who are not hindered or affected by similar issues, and therefore, have a competitive edge), the power of healing and academic progress becomes all the more possible.
