Turning Winds West Virginia Connections

One of a parent’s greatest nightmares is watching their child struggle and not knowing how or where to get them help. We here at Turning Winds not only understand this nightmare, but have been helping teens heal and families recover since we first opened our doors in 2002. We want to make sure you have the best information and resources you need in order to help your child.

How To Find The Best Teen Treatment

Your Goal

There is hope and healing if your teen is struggling with mental, behavioral, and/or substance abuse issues. The primary goal is to find a teen treatment rehab that will not only help your child heal, but help them build a strong foundation so that they may live up to their truest potential. Your teen is not a bad kid trying to get good, they are struggling and they need help to get well. Let’s help you and them get just that.

Location, Location, Location

Turning Winds has helped teens and their families from all over the U.S. and we have found that out-of-state treatment centers are the best options. They offer a new perspective, an escape from unhealthy influences, and an opportunity to focus all their energy on their recovery program. The outdoors more specifically can provide healing for the mind and body so when looking for a teen treatment program, we suggest you find one that provides activities like skiing, hiking, camping, volunteer service, and more. Our campus here at Turning Winds is located in the beautiful mountains of Troy, Montana and we have seen what nature has done for these teens mental and physical well-being. We understand that sending your child away from home and to treatment center out-of-state can be unnerving, but it’s the best opportunity for your kiddo to not only heal, but learn new things, try new activities, and meet new people all while discovering their true self and building a foundation so that they may live a life full of purpose, happiness, and success.

Length of Stay

Length of stay is more important than many think. We strongly suggest a teen treatment program that provides at least 3 months of care. Anything less than 90 days may be a disservice your teens care and ultimate long-term recovery. The longer your child has the opportunity to work on themselves, develop healthy habits, build up their self-esteem, and rebuild their GPA in school, the better chance they will have at continuing implementing this new way of life into their aftercare and ultimately the rest of their lives.

Insurance and Cost

There are some insurance companies that will pay for at least part of their treatment care, but there may still be out-of-pocket expenses. No matter what program you decide on they should help you navigate your insurance coverage and costs and provide information and resources on how you could fund treatment all while advocating for the best care for your teen. We suggest you contact your insurance company along with the treatment programs you are interested in so that you may discover what your plan does cover and what you will have to pay out-of-pocket. If you need further assistance with this process, please have your insurance card ready and call us at 800-845-1380 to find out what steps you can take in order to pay for the best care for your child.

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.
