Turning Winds New Hampshire Connections

Do you increasingly find yourself worrying that your teen is headed for trouble? It’s often difficult for parents to determine what constitutes normal teenage rebellion and assertion of their independence versus more troubling behaviors that may require intervention. If you are concerned that your adolescent is engaging in self-destructive behaviors, it may be time to seek outside help. Turning Winds is a place you can turn to for assistance. Our teen treatment center has been successfully supporting at-risk youth since 2002. Our program and staff provide a safe, positive environment where teens can change their life for the better in an environment that abounds with nature. A place where there exist similarities of home and not that of a hospital. We can offer you the resources and information you need to make an informed choice about the best path for your teen and your family.

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

When your teen is struggling with a mental, emotional, or behavioral problem, it can affect their health and education, which are vital components of a productive and happy childhood. If left unaddressed, underlying issues can manifest into destructive and dangerous choices that can jeopardize both your teen’s present and future. To help your adolescent succeed, you may need outside support from trained professionals with the background in how to work with teens and their struggles effectively. For such behaviors to change, teens need guidance to understand the cause of their distress and learn the skills to manage it. The best program will also include academic support. This is vital to recovery because education and behavioral health are interconnected and can affect each other, either positively or negatively. To ensure the most effective intervention for your teen, look for treatment centers and programs with a proven track record that are accredited and use licensed medical and clinical professionals.

Location, Location, Location

The location of the program you choose can also affect your teen’s success. It is best to avoid searching for a teen treatment center exclusively in your home region or state. Otherwise, you might miss out on a program that is a better fit for your family and teen. The thought of sending your adolescent away can be painful and stressful, even when you are experiencing discord in your relationship. But sending your teen to a more distant program can be beneficial to your adolescent in the long run. If your family has been experiencing conflict, you all need space to heal the divide before working on your relationship. Going away will give your teen a fresh start and help them free themselves from the destructive patterns and influences that were so accessible close to home. A new environment will also help your adolescent gain a fresh perspective on life, gain valuable growth promoting experiences, build new healthy friendships, and the motivation to do the necessary work to grow and become more independent.

Length of Stay

Healing emotional wounds, treating mental illness and disabilities, learning to manage behavioral struggles, and choosing to work toward a better future takes time. Short term programs lasting only a few weeks or a couple of months do not provide young people the time in most cases to make a permanent change. The most effective programs provide a customized timeline for care.  In our experience, parents can expect on average treatment to last for seven months. 

Insurance and Cost

Teen treatment centers can be expensive because of their intensive nature and the resources required to support at-risk youth. Fortunately, the costs to you are not set in stone. There are several ways to decrease costs and make it more affordable to get your teen the best help possible. Many teen treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools work with insurance companies and offer financial aid, scholarships, and other resources to help families raise funds.

Can Turning Winds Help My Teen?

Turning Winds has a proven track record of successful interventions with teens ages 13 to 18 from all around the country and world.

Family is an integral part of teen recovery, especially for healing the relationship between teens and their parents for a successful return home.

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.
