Troubled Teen? What options do parents have?

By Stephen C. Schultz



"What can we do to intervene in the life of our struggling teen?"





I hear this comment on a regular basis. The number of times I have had this conversation with a family just outside the emergency room in their local hospital is too high to count! Self harm and suicide attempts are stressful for all involved. Often these teens are struggling with drugs, running away, poor grades at school or simply being disenfranchised with life in general. Deciding which therapeutic option is best for their child and their family can be overwhelming.

With hundreds of therapeutic programs and services to choose from, parents are confused and uncertain about where to turn for help. Here is a good place to start.

Recognized as the foremost leader in Research Informed Treatment, RedCliff Ascent is an Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare program that accepts students from across the globe. If sitting in a stuffy outpatient office hasn't worked well for your son or daughter, the fresh air, outdoor living, hiking and therapy under a tree might just be a solution!

Please feel free to share some of your struggles. While it doesn't make the pain any less when dealing with a wayward son or daughter, it is helpful to realize you are not alone.
