Residential Treatment Centers for Teens

Residential Treatment Centers for Teens

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.

 Turning Winds: recovering teen feeling optimistic at Turning Winds' Academic Institute

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.

Youth Residential Treatment Center at Turning Winds

At Turning Winds, we believe every adolescent has the potential to excel in academics. The goal of our program is to help adolescents identify their learning strengths so we can capitalize on them and help them see success that continues to expand. Our staff to student ratio is 5:1, so we can provide teen boys and girls the full attention they require to benefit from our Residential Treatment Center and have their therapeutic needs met.

Turning Winds: recovering teens feeling optimistic at Turning Winds' Academic InstituteOur healing program is based on the 5 Pillars of Change. Together, these constitute the 5 Pillars of Therapeutic Change:

  1. Character, Education, and Life Skills
  2. Health, Wellness, and Fitness
  3. Outdoor Education
  4. Therapeutic Success
  5. Academic Achievement

When enrolled in our program, adolescents hike, fish, swim, and camp. They learn how to survive not only in a wilderness setting but also in real life.

The goal of our Residential Treatment Center Program is to help teen boys and girls discover they truly do have the power to make the right choices. We provide them the tools they need so they can manage their lives and be entrusted with making many of their decisions.

Every moment of the day at Turning Winds is filled with enriching and therapeutic opportunities and learning experiences. We provide at-risk adolescents life opportunities they may never have experienced before.

Before long, teen boys and girls begin to blossom into successful young adults, and can show they can make lasting, positive changes that will impact their lives well into their young adult future.

Though it can be scary reaching out for help for a child, we are here to guide parents and give them answers to the questions they have been asking. We understand how much it hurts to see a child turn down the wrong path and become stuck there. We can pull them out and bring the family back together. Pick up the phone and call us at (800) 845-1380. Our intake counselors are standing by to talk with you.
