Turning Winds South Carolina Connections

If your teen is struggling and you are not sure where to turn, then you have come to the right place. South Carolina adolescents who are suffering from any kind of mental, behavioral, or substance use disorders need and deserve help. It might seem hopeless now, but it does not have to stay that way. Your child is not a bad kid, he/she is struggling and while they might not admit it today, they are suffering and want help but perhaps are scared or embarrassed to ask for it. There is hope! Your child can heal long-term and we here at Turning Winds want to help make that happen for your child and your family.

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

Chances are this is not something new; you have been battling this for a while now. You’ve tried a variety of different approaches to address the problem and improve your child’s behavior, attitudes and overall health; restrictions, consequences, serious and stern discussions, perhaps even having your child stay with family members to see if demeanor and behaviors would change – you have tried it all and nothing has worked. Your goal remains the same, to get your loved one help and save their life  If you are researching how to help your kiddo and landed on this page, then you are in the right place and we want to help you find the help they deserve. The goal is get them the best care from the start so that they can learn how to live life on life’s terms in a healthy and productive way.

Location, Location, Location

As you research programs, do not limit yourself to your local area or even home state. While it is appealing to family, especially parents, to have your child’s care be close to home that should not be the top priority. We said the goal is finding the best care possible for your kiddo and to do that you’ll want to expand your search – seek quality of care, not convenience of location. In fact, many parents who have been in your shoes and gone through similar experiences will tell you that having your child close to home often increases the risk of failure – your child is still around the same negative influences and is more prone to run away from treatment. Getting your child out of the area separates them from the calamity and allows them to reset and focus on themselves and their healing journey while also exposing them to new opportunities and activities. A space that can provide nature, fresh air, and activities like skiing, camping, biking, and hiking will help your teen get refreshed and inspired while also learning new talents, building self-esteem, and creating positive and healthy habits where they can redirect their energies. We have witnessed countless miracles here at Turning Winds in the nature and wonder of the Rocky Mountains and the great Pacific North West; we know the value of getting a child away from home separated from negative influences, bad habits, and unhealthy relationships.

Length of Stay

Did you know that some treatment programs will tell you that you only need 30 days to rehab a teen back to health? In many cases this is because that is what most commercial insurance companies will cover. We have found through our years of treating and healing adolescents that short-term care is rarely enough and attending a program 3 months or longer greatly decreases the risk of relapse or further life-threatening consequences. If you want your teen to fully heal and become the best version of themselves, then you should truly consider long-term care.

Insurance and Cost

There is no way around it, quality mental/behavioral health and substance abuse treatment can be costly. We encourage you to research and explore all the resources available to you to help with funding for your teen’s care. If you have commercial health insurance it might possibly help with some coverage. It’s best to work directly with the treatment program that you have researched and chosen so you can find out from the start if they are an option and what your out-of-pocket expenses would be. The cost of care might seem daunting, but when you consider what you’ll end up spending in the long run if you don’t get your child the help they need today it becomes much less challenging. It might seem impossible, but saving your child’s life and preparing them for an amazing future could only cost you the monthly amount of a car loan. Turning Winds helps our families find the best resources to help them navigate costs while also advocating for their child’s care and coverage. If you would like to know if your insurance covers treatment, call now at 800-845-1380. You are not alone and we are here to help the best we can.

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.
