Turning Winds Arizona Connections

A parent’s worst nightmare is watching their teen struggle and not being able and/or knowing how to help despite attempt after attempt to do so. We here at Turning Winds not only understand this, but have been helping teens and their families heal, recover, and rebuild since 2002. Our goal is to provide you with the best information and resources so that you might get the help your teen and family needs and deserves!

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

Your teen’s recovery is a process and so they need a treatment program that understands this; one that offers an environment which fosters and allows for long-term recovery. There are a few key factors that can help guide to ensuring the best chance at finding a placement that will provide life-long results. As long as you keep an open mind to suggestions from qualified professionals, you will be on the right path towards finding your loved one the best treatment care possible.

Location, Location, Location

We have helped teens all over the country and in some cases world, so don’t just limit your search for care to in-state only. Sending your toon to a rehab program out of state offers a plethora of benefits to their overall health including the healing power of the environment that they are in, the ability to build new friendships and relationships with staff and peers based on common goals, and an opportunity to focus solely on their recovery and treatment plan without the distractions and triggers of home. It may seem daunting to send your teen to a rehab center out-of-state, but in the long run it could be the very best thing for them to heal, recover and live a life full of happiness and purpose.

Length of Stay

From our experience, we would suggest an adolescent treatment center that offers a minimum stay of 3-6 months or more. The miracles we see are real and length of stay absolutely matters when it comes to your teen’s recovery. Your child’s mental health struggles and unhealthy, dangerous behaviors did not develop overnight; it would be unfair and unrealistic to expect them to recover and heal in a few short months. Give your teen a real chance at getting it right the first time by affording them the chance to spend the quality time they need to recover.

Insurance and Cost

If you have insurance it may cover some of the cost, but may not cover all costs of care. We believe in helping keep families informed about what their insurance policy will cover and helping to navigate you through the insurance process to ensure that your family and teen are getting the most out of your plan. No matter where you decide to send your teen, make sure they are helping to guide you through the entire admission process, including health insurance as this is an important and intricate part in getting the right help. Although talking about the cost of care is difficult and can seem overwhelming, remember that this is an investment into the health of your child; into your child’s life and well-being and is worth every dollar you put in. If you are still overwhelmed, please feel free to contact our admissions department directly and we can help guide you in the right direction, 800-845-1380.

Equine Therapy – Healing With Horses

Today we got to experience the healing power of the horse. The students have been learning to properly lead, groom and care for these animals. Much like their teenage handlers, horses can be stubborn and reluctant to follow orders. As our students learn to get along and work with the horses they will gain emotional awareness, empathy, flexibility, self-control, assertiveness and problem-solving skills. Horses mirror the behavior of their handlers giving students the opportunity to gain a better understanding of their own emotions and body language, which helps them to have better interpersonal relationships and impulse control.

TWAI Girls Having the Glacier Park Experience

Some of our girls went on a recent excursion to Glacier National Park. The 3 hour drive to the park was filled with laughter and loud singing as they took turns playing DJ with their favorite music. Big horn sheep came out to greet them on Going-To-The-Sun Road and the aspen and larch trees were adorned in their fall yellow leaves. Everyone was truly amazed at how beautiful everything was while driving through West Glacier to their trailhead destination in Logan Pass. The round trip hike to Hidden Lake Overlook is 2.7 miles with a peak trail elevation of 7152 feet. The girls got to joke around, relax and enjoy the great Montana wilderness. After the long day they capped the trip off with burritos for dinner in Kalispell.
