How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

You may be wondering where to begin or what kind of treatment is the best kind of treatment for my kid. If you are feeling overwhelmed on where to turn, you are not alone. Let’s first get you on the best path for your child and your family. Here are 3 simple steps to help get you started:
  1. Now is the time to reach out to a close, understanding family member or friend for support. This way you can clearly and constructively navigate this process while having loved ones support you and give you the energy and help you need to succeed at getting your teen help.
  2. Now is the best time to find out what your insurance plan covers. Knowing or having an understanding of this information can at least give you an idea of what costs are going to expected out-of-pocket when choosing a program. If you are not sure how to go about this process, feel free to call Turning Winds at 800-845-1380 for more information.
  3. Keep an open mind when researching treatment programs. Don’t be afraid to go out-of-state or limit yourself to only 30 day programs. Did you know that not all teen treatment programs offer grade recovery? This is the type of information that is important to know so that you can give your child the best opportunity at a full recovery.

Location, Location, Location

Location is important and if you are only looking at what is close to home, you are possibly missing out on some really excellent programs. We want to invite you to look at it this way, if your child was suffering from a serious physical illness would you simply choose a program close to home because it is more convenient or would you look throughout the country to make sure you are getting them the best care possible? It is the same with mental and behavioral health issues. Going out-of-state brings many benefits such as the removal of an unhealthy environment, suffering relationships, and the prevention of your teen reaching out or even running away to engage with their negative peer influences. Another amazing benefit of going to treatment out-of-state is the opportunity to discover new hobbies, talents, and skills that they may not have otherwise learned. When choosing a location, you want to think about how this rehab program will add to your child’s education, talents, imagination, and overall growth and self-esteem. No matter where you choose to send your kiddo, it should provide them with life-changing perspective on life and their future.

Length of Stay

Now that we have gone over the benefits going to an out-of-state teen treatment program, let’s take a look at length of stay and how crucial this could be to your teen’s overall long-term recovery and success. More often than not, a short term 30 day treatment program will not cut it. Your teen is struggling and sick and they need time to heal and change their entire attitude, behaviors, and outlook on life. We strongly recommend they attend a program that starts at a minimum of 3 months and could treat them all the way to a full year if needed. This will allow them the real opportunity to work through all their issues, catch up in school, and learn how to live up to their truest potential. Turning Winds has been working with struggling teens and their families since 2002 and from our experience it is so important that you look into every resource available so that your child can receive the best care possible.

Insurance and Cost

A common frustration expressed by parents is when their insurance company restricts coverage to a certain period, typically up to only 90 days. At Turning Winds, we empathize with these concerns and are here to provide guidance throughout the insurance process, ensuring that you can confidently proceed to secure the care your child deserves.

We acknowledge that financial considerations may influence your choice of treatment for your child. However, it’s crucial to recognize that this decision pertains to their health and future. Your teenager merits the highest level of care available. It’s important to view this as a long-term investment in your teen’s life, as they unquestionably deserve a future filled with purpose, happiness, and success.
