Treatment and School Together: Merging Priorities – Maintaining Balance
Sometimes when families are looking for extra support it’s hard to know what to look for. Initially, many parents try to address issues through a school rather than looking at residential treatment for troubled teens, which is often viewed as a last resort. For some families, a supportive school is the right choice. There may be times however that a more clinically comprehensive setting may be required and should be accessed if necessary.
Families often wait until they see deterioration in school performance before seeking help. Parents sometimes worry that choosing out of home treatment options may somehow interfere with school progress. Although a treatment program, Venture Academy prioritizes education so that teens can stay current with their academic work while receiving treatment. This is a unique characteristic of Venture Academy as not all treatment programs ensure a normalized school experience and schools are not well equipped to provide assessment and therapeutic services.
Venture Academy provides academic support and at the same time, addresses the underlying issues contributing to school and other challenges.
