Adolescence is a turbulent period in which teens usually face many conflicts. Teenagers struggle with adoption issues in many different ways. This is the time of physical and emotional change in which feelings of loss can dominate the teen. Those boys and girls, who are adopted as newborns, may have feelings of rejection. Abandonment by the birth parents affects the teens mentally and socially.
Adopted Teenagers tend to have Identity Issues
Troubled teens may live their whole lives with grief. As a result, those who are adopted may get involved in alcohol abuse or drug addictions or they may engage in sexual activities due to depression or they may experience many other behavior problems. Teenagers who have been adopted tend to have identity issues and “do not know who they are”, as well. This can lead to low self-confidence, making teens feel like rejected, scratched goods, trying to analyze the reason behind the biological parental rejection. There are some adoptive parents who show difference between the adopted and biological children which created other issues. All of these issues, for troubled teens, turns into forms of depression.
Now, there are therapeutic programs designed for troubled teens who are experiencing adoption issues. Residential treatment programs and therapeutic boarding schools can help to overcome depression and increase self-esteem. They have on-site, experienced adoption therapists to provide the best solution for the identity related problems experienced by adopted teenagers. They provide comfort and support to overcome loneliness and help the healing begin.
At C.A.R.E., we help parents realize that no amount of nurturing might have prevented the issues that their adopted children face. We can help troubled teens work through the difficulties of adoption and come out on the other side safe and sound. Please call our Admissions Counselor at 866-492-9215. We can help!
