Turning Winds Nevada Connections

Despite it’s best efforts, the state of Nevada is struggling to provide adequate and necessary resources for adolescent mental and behavioral health care. We here at Turning Winds understand the desperate need to provide and help those teens who are suffering. The caring staff at Turning Winds has been helping families and their children since 2002 and we want to make sure you have all the information you need in order to find the best treatment program for your teen.

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

Your goal is to find the best quality of care and treatment that meets your teen’s needs and addresses his/her behavioral and mental health before it becomes a life-long battle or even worse, too late. In order to accomplish this, you are going to have to make some difficult decisions. We have found that long-term treatment which focuses on building a positive self-image, encourages personal growth and the recovery of studies, and provides quality clinical therapy can help heal any underlying issues that may have been holding them back from true long-term successful recovery.

Location, Location, Location

Location does matter and it can be the defining component that your teen needs in order to heal from any trauma, PTSD, mental health disorders, and/or behavioral health issues that have been plaguing your child. Did you know that the wilderness can provide excellent health benefits when it comes to the recovery of the mind, body, and spirit? It’s true and we have witnessed miracles time and time again with the teens that have attended our program here in the woods and mountains of Montana. We understand for those living in Nevada that Montana can seem like a giant leap away from home, but attending an out-of-state adolescent treatment program could be the very thing that alters your teen’s path for the better. A new environment can offer new and fresh perspective, allow for the discovery of new talents and skills, and provide the opportunity to get away from any negative influences or triggers that have harming your teen and keeping them from their true potential to live their best life. Your child deserves the chance to learn, heal, explore, work on and further their academics, have fun, and build a foundation that could change the course of their lives forever. Whether they attend a program like Turning Winds or another program that provides an intricate mix of therapy, academics, and recreational activities we encourage you to step outside of the box and explore other treatment programs outside of your state.

Length of Stay

We understand the idea of sending your teen away to a treatment program for anything longer than a day, let alone 6 months or more, can be overwhelming but if you look at the big picture and consider what you want for them for the rest of their lives, it’s hard to ignore that the longer the stay the better the chance they have at living a life where they are proud, happy, and free from their past struggles, behaviors, and destruction. Your true and ultimate dream for your child is to see them live their best lives and build a future with a bright outlook that you know they are capable of achieving, but perhaps have recently lost faith in believing of the past few months or even years. If you let go of trying to control their present and allow a treatment program like Turning Winds to take care of your child and help them achieve that dream, you will be giving your teen the best gift you could ever give them – a chance at true life-long happiness.

Insurance and Cost

Turning Winds understands this is an obstacle that can prevent many families from getting the best possible care for their teen, but it doesn’t have to be. Understanding what your insurance covers along with the cost of the treatment program can help you make the best decision possible for your family. Remember that this is more than just rehab, but an investment into the future of your teen’s life. We help families navigate their insurance and will work hard to advocate for their treatment plan. Any program that you are looking at should offer this kind of care and help. If you have no insurance, state insurance, or no funds to help pay for treatment then they should at least point you in the direction of services that can help you. Do not let the fear of the cost of care stop you from researching the best care.

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.
