Families Come First!

Addiction is a family disease, making it also a disease of relationships. Family engagement plays a vital role in recovery for the addicted individual and the entire family system. 

Families are often in turmoil—especially if the addicted loved one is a teenage child. They are urgently trying to figure out what to do to help their child—before it’s too late. The process of evaluating wilderness programs, therapeutic boarding schools, or residential treatment centers for troubled teenagers is probably one of the most difficult experiences a parent can have. Turning Winds has designed a hybrid program that blends the benefits of each of these three approaches to more comprehensively address contributing components in a positive environment of success. 

We also deeply understand the financial aspects families navigate when trying to provide the very best treatment services for their children. The good news is that as a Joint Commission Gold Seal accredited program, we work with most major insurance policies. This helps to significantly reduce the cost of treatment services for your child. 

We understand that as the parent, working with your insurance provider to cover the costs of treatment can feel unfamiliar and overwhelming. Our admissions and client relations team members are here to help guide and direct you through this process at the beginning but also are by your side through the entirety of the child’s stay.

People like client relations specialist Traci Cason are there to help. Helping families navigate the financial intricacies of addiction treatment is what she does best. As a parent herself, she knows that the families she works with could use her expertise and compassion. 

It can be complicated to sort out the appropriate level of care for your loved one and what your insurance provider is prepared to cover. “We really understand what families are going through,” says Cason. “Most of our staff members are parents, too—so, they really care and always put families first.” 

Traci is easily accessible when parents have questions about a level of care or program change and what it means for billing purposes. “If you are looking into residential treatment centers or therapeutic boarding schools for troubled teens, you have come to the right place.” 

The best way to find out if our program is the right one for your child is to speak with us in person. Contact us online or call us at (800) 845-1380 and we can start the conversation.
