Utah adolescents who are struggling with mental and behavioral health issues deserve the opportunity to heal and recover long-term. We here at Turning Winds have helped thousands since 2002 and as leaders in the adolescent treatment field, we want to equip you with the information and resources you need to help your child become the best versions of themselves.

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

The ultimate goal is to help your child recover long-term and live a life full of success, joy, and purpose. Any treatment center you are looking at should offer a space where they can heal, catch up on their academic studies, and change destructive habits while getting ready for their future outside of treatment. It is important to locate a teen program that supports you and your child, so keep an open-mind to programs that may be out-side your area and offer longer-term stays. You want to make sure your teen is provid-ed the best care so let’s look at some factors to help you find just that.

The ultimate goal is to help your child recover long-term and live a life full of success, joy, and purpose. Any treatment center you are looking at should offer a space where they can heal, catch up on their academic studies, and change destructive habits while getting ready for their future outside of treatment. It is important to locate a teen program that supports you and your child, so keep an open-mind to programs that may be outside your area and offer longer-term stays. You want to make sure your teen is provided the best care so let’s look at some factors to help you find just that.

Length of Stay

There are all kinds of treatment programs for teens, but we suggest a program that offers a longer term stay of 3 months to a year. We know that this can seem like a long time, but in the big picture of trying to help heal the whole mind, body, and spirit life-long, it’s time well spent and that is important for ultimate recovery. Your teen has been struggling for some time now, and so long-term treatment is your best option when it comes to their care. Real recovery takes time and effort. They also need the time to bring up their grades so that when they graduate from their care, they’re more likely to succeed beyond high school. Remember that the ultimate goal is help them recover long-term, so length of stay is very important in order to accomplish this goal.

Insurance and Cost

We know that the cost of treatment can seem beyond reach, but that is why any program you are looking into should offer options and support on how you can pay for the best care. Most commercial insurance companies will cover some part of care. The key is finding out what programs they cover, how long they will cover for, and what your out-of-pocket costs are. A good treatment program will help navigate your healthcare coverage and advocate for your child’s care, so be sure to have your insurance information ready when researching teen rehab centers. After insurance coverage is looked over, then you can discuss what you will owe and ways you can help pay for care. Remember that this is an investment into your child’s health and future.

Zone Of Proximal Development

Zone of Proximal Development is the range of tasks that are too difficult for a person to learn alone, but can be learned with guidance from someone with experience in the task. This term was developed by Vygotsky as part of his theory on child development. The zone has a lower limit: things that are difficult but possible for a child to learn alone, and an upper limit: things that a child cannot yet learn, even with assistance from an adult. For a toddler, an example of the lower limit might be putting shaped pegs into similarly shaped holes. An example of the upper limit might be adding and subracting two-digit numbers.

Yerkes – Dodson Law Of Arousal

The Yerkes-Dodson Law of Arousal, also known as Arousal Theory, states that an organism’s performance can be improved if that organism is aroused in some manner. However, if the level of arousal increases too much, performance decreases. Of course, this level is different in everyone. An example of this is an athlete who performs better under real game situation than he/she does during practice games. There is more arousal (stress, excitement) during the real games which increases their performance. But, if the pressure becomes too much, their performance can decrease (e.g., missing an easy shot with time running out and losing the game — choking!)
