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.

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.
