Therapeutic Boarding Schools for Troubled Teens in Illinois for Boys & Girls
Therapeutic boarding schools for troubled teens are a viable option for parents that are currently struggling with raising a troubled teen. We at WinGate Wilderness Therapy believe that Wilderness Therapy is a better option for these parents and can help restore their troubled teen and help them meet their full potential. If you are interested in finding the help you need and restore your troubled teen's life, please call us at 1-800-560-1599
Research and studies have shown that troubled teens are more willing to accept therapeutic treatment while living in the wilderness. This is due to the fact that they are completely removed from their comfort zone and distractions. They are removed from all of their negative friendships and relationships that may have enabled them to go off track and live a chaotic lifestyle.
Troubled teens that are currently addicted to drugs and alcohol or suffer from disorders such as ADD, ADHD, bipolar or any other type of psychological disorder will receive adequate therapeutic treatment from our highly trained therapeutic staff.
Since the campers at WinGate do not have the option to watch TV, get on Facebook or play video games, they have nothing to do but completely focus on their issues and negative behaviors with which they have recently been battling.
Another example on why WinGate Wilderness is your best option, is the fact that teens are not locked up in a building all day. Teens are more likely to rebel and resist treatment and therapy when they are forced to stay inside all day. This is mostly because troubled youth feel institutionalized when they are in a lockdown facility.
Our alternative approach to helping what is essentially our future leaders of America (today’s teens), allows us to help students feel free and receive treatment in the beautiful and mountainous wilderness.
The staff at WinGate, do not believe in creating resistance with the students. This means that they do not use punishment as a source to try and force the students to grow, but instead let the student's accomplishments help motivate them, which in turn gives the camper self esteem.
If you feel as though you are without hope raising your troubled teen and want help, please call us now at 1-800-560-1599 and let us give you information on how we can help.
