What Is Residential Treatment? Understanding the Most Effective Option for Helping Teens Turn Things Around
Residential treatment is help for troubled teens temporarily living away from home and receiving help in another setting or community in a structured, comprehensive treatment setting. This interrupts the pattern of negatively entrenched behaviours and gives opportunity for a fresh start.
Importantly, it separates your child from any of the influences that are negatively impacting thinking and behaviour, such as undesirable peer group, drugs and alcohol, social media etc. This provides an optimal opportunity for therapeutic work to occur with reduced distraction and gives your child a fighting chance. Venture Academy has helped over 1,000 teens in our treatment programs since 2001.
