Please help my at risk child from Norwich, CT find affordable help before its too late
Troubled teens are "at risk children" whose life has gotten out of control; they may be using drugs and alcohol, acting out in defiance, running away, and have dropped out of school. These teens may be getting in trouble with the law (underaged drinking, vandalism, or running away). An at risk youth may not be involved with any illegal activity, but still be considered "at-risk". For example, a girl may be allowing her boyfriend to abuse her and not know which way to turn. A young man may have been sexually abused when he was younger and too ashamed to tell anyone. There are literally thousands of factors that would create an "at-risk-youth". If your child is struggling and you are seeking affordable treatment, call our Family Advocates. We can help - 866-492-9215.
These struggling teenagers may have gotten mixed up in a suburban gang (gang wannabees) and they care more about the "acceptance" from their peers than they do about their future. They know they are heading in the wrong direction, but don't care. The acceptance of their peers are way too important. Troubled teens are any teenager who is involved in things that can ruin their life, or even end it. They may not even realize what shape they are in and that they need help. At risk teens can be immature teenagers who are entitled. Meaning, their parents have provided everything and the child is simply spoiled (demanding, selfish, self-centered, lazy, irresponsible).
Some at tisk teens may be involved with drugs, but not all at-risk youth are abusing substances. However, for parents - the more you know about what may be going on behind your back, the better prepared you will be to deal with your child's situation (preferably before it becomes a major issue). A lot of parents look at their child's outrageous behavior as a "phase" that they will grow out of... and its true, some teens do go through a short rebellious stage. Unfortunately, most teens do not go through a phase without serious consequences. If your child is "at risk", we can help you gind an affordable treatment intervention option. Call 866-452-6321.

It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Charlotte Bront, Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act. Truman Capote
We are all dying, every moment that passes of every day. That is the inescapable truth of this existence. It is a truth that can paralyze us with fear, or one that can energize us with impatience, with the desire to explore and experience, with the hope- nay, the iron-will!- to find a memory in every action. To be alive, under sunshine, or starlight, in weather fair or stormy. To dance with every step, be they through gardens of flowers or through deep snows. R.A. Salvatore
