Group Homes for Troubled Teens in Iowa


Group Homes for Troubled Teens in IowaGroup homes
for Troubled Teens can be a very viable and resourceful tool for parents of troubled teens in Iowa to utilize. At WinGate Wilderness, we believe that students that complete our wilderness therapy program are able to fully receive necessary treatment that group homes offer. We believe that students, prior to attending a group home, should first complete our one of a kind wilderness therapy in order to enhance their overall growth and experience at a group home for troubled teens. For more information, please contact WinGate's Admissions Director at 1 800 566 1599.

Group homes for troubled teens were created with intentions to provide troubled teens with necessary therapeutic intervention, academic assistance and invaluable life skills they need to develop in order to succeed in the real world. Group homes usually offer group and individual therapy as well as supply students with a custom development and treatment plan.

Group homes typically use a level system which allows the student to earn privileges through good and positive behavior. it is common for teens that live in group homes to be responsible for chores such as cleaning the house, washing dishes, helping shop for groceries and even helping prepare meals. Through this type of training, the students are able to develop skills that are necessary when returning to the life in the real world.

By living together, the troubled teens will learn vital social skills like learning how to appropriately live and work together. If tensions get too high between students, professional staff are able to intervene and use the situation as an ample teaching opportunity. By doing this, the staff are able to use a negative situation and turn it into a life-lesson for the teen in order to help them grow.

If you are a parent of a troubled boy or girl and have lost control of their life, it is important that you seek help outside of an outside source such as a group home for troubled teens. If you are interested, or need help in restoring order and balance in your out of control teen, please don't hesitate to call us here at WinGate Wilderness Therapy. You can reach our Admissions Director any time at 1 800 560 1599.
