Parents that send their troubled teen to a boot camp for troubled teens do not understand that these types of programs are not therapeutic facilities. Troubled teens need therapeutic intervention in order to grow and emotionally mature. This type of therapeutic treatment is not only neglected at a boot camp, it's non-existent. These boot camps use a punishment based system with little to no rewards given for productive behavior. Teens are treated like dirt and screamed at throughout most of their stay. If that is considered child abuse at home, then why would parents PAY someone else to treat their children in such a way.

Although boot camps for troubled teens may provide parents with temporary relief, the change in their teen's behavior is almost never permanent. The only way to promote permanent emotional and therapeutic change in a teen, is to promote change from within. This type of change only occurs when the teen trusts their staff and respects them, not because they are afraid, but because they truly believe the staff are there to help and that they truly care.
