Residential Treatment Centers for Teens
Turning Winds Academic Institute (TWAI) is a Residential Treatment Center for teens that offers an accredited Therapeutic Boarding School and Adventure Therapy Program to help at-risk adolescents who are in need of change and therapy for opiate abuse/addiction and alcohol dependence. We work to identify the mental health triggers that teen boys and girls are dealing with, so the right treatment and intervention can be put into place. With the beautiful surroundings only Mother Nature can provide, we help adolescents get back on the right path and work to reunite them within the strong bonds of their family.
A Residential Treatment Center can help adolescents who have lost their way and are acting out defiantly. Often, parents are not sure whether or not their adolescent is in need of intervention, so it's important they are aware of the warning signs for which to look. When a teen seems to have lost control, is hanging with the wrong crowds, and is going through changes in school performance, parents should consider treatment to find the source of these issues.
At Turning Winds, we work with adolescents who have seemingly given up on life. Often, these teen boys and girls are dealing with multiple mental health issues and are simply crying out for help. We can help adolescents who are dealing with bipolar disorder, failure in school, poor decision making, and those with emotional and behavioral disorders. Our program seeks to bring issues to the light where they can be properly treated.
Not only do we work to bring change to a adolescent’s heart, mind, and soul, but we also provide them the necessary tools for thriving in their academic studies. Turning Winds offers a stellar academic program that has led to our clients successfully maintaining a GPA average of 3.5.
Parents, we fully understand how frustrating and even frightening it can be to see a child stumbling blindly towards the wrong friends and decisions. We are here to answer your questions and guide you in getting help for your adolescent. Please call us at (800) 845-1380. Our practitioners are waiting to assist you.
Mental Health Residential Treatment
Many adolescents suffer silently with a host of mental health issues that end up leading them down the wrong path and into opiate abuse/addiction, alcohol dependence, and defiance. Unfortunately, less than half of the teen boys and girls struggling with mental health conditions receive treatment. Regrettably, there is still a stigma attached to mental health conditions.
At Turning Winds, we fully understand the unique needs at-risk teen boys and girls have when going through change. Our Residential Treatment Center offers a premier therapy program that has been entirely successful in supporting thousands of adolescents overcome their addictions and receive proper treatment for their mental health conditions.
When parents learn their adolescent is involved in drugs and alcohol, their world can seem to come to a screeching halt. No one wants to consider their child being involved in such darkness, but the reality is, teen boys and girls often turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with the symptoms of mental health conditions with which they are struggling with. Regrettably, addiction knows no bounds and can affect adolescents from the best homes.
Turning Winds is an accredited program that offers the best treatment aspects of a Residential Treatment Center and Outdoor Therapy program rolled into one. We have been accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission and the National Independent Private Schools Association. Through communing with the great outdoors, we teach teen boys and girls to become problem solvers and to learn to make wise decisions. Most parents are amazed when they see a strong work ethic developing in their once lackadaisical child.
There is something special about getting away from it all, breathing fresh air, and becoming one with nature that begins to transform the attitude, mindset, and heart of belligerent teen boys and girls. With no social distractions and no media presence of any kind, adolescents can actually focus on recovering from opiate abuse/addiction and alcohol dependence, so they can be successful in their academic studies.
