Truancy and Poor School Performance in Troubled Teens
By Curtis Reed
Troubled teens who choose to skip classes and are getting poor grades in school are in need of an intervention. Adolescence is a transition into adulthood where teenagers begin to define who they are and what they stand for, so it is important that they have moral values and ideas that constitute a positive foundation for healthy productivity later in life. C.A.R.E. Schools have a variety of rehabilitation programs that promote the concept of self-sustainability. For more information on what C.A.R.E. Schools have to offer, please contact our kind admissions counselors at (866)492-9215.
Does your troubled teen interact with peers that negatively influence their choices? Out of state, C.A.R.E. Schools remove struggling adolescents from their current environments and place them in a structured home-like setting with licensed clinicians and genuine, caring staff members and other like-minded individuals on a similar road to recovery. Positive Peer Culture impacts every individual, bringing motivation for change and openness to compliance. Has your troubled teen given up on making an effort with their schoolwork? C.A.R.E. Schools specialize in academic restoration, which will raise their grades, intellect and drive so they will transition smoothly back into public school with transferable credits. We also offer college preparatory lessons! Does your child have a developmental disorder such as ADD/ADHD that interferes with their ability to do well in school? Whether you choose to treat this problem pharmacologically or therapeutically (or both), C.A.R.E. Schools utilize devices that are proven to lead to full recuperation and stability.
Branches of C.A.R.E. Schools parents may consider are residential treatment centers, group homes, military schools, boarding schools, summer camps, wilderness/adventure therapy, and many other programs. Troubled teens are taught about responsibility and dedication, a cornerstone of our programs being leadership development. Incorporated into the recovery process is athletics, equine therapy (horsemanship), creative expression, positive peer culture, academic restoration as well as familial, group and individual therapies to name a few. Students learn more about themselves and acquire life skills that will help them overcome adversity in the future.
