Boot Camps for Troubled Teens in Oregon

Boot Camp Troubled TeensParents from Oregon will often search for boot camps for troubled teens on Google, hoping to find a therapeutic option for their struggling boy or girl. Unfortunately, there are very few, if any, privately owned therapeutic-based boot camps near Oregon. However, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. In many situations, these programs are not effective in bringing about the change in behavior that parents are looking for. The good news is that there are plenty of other private pay therapeutic options. For immediate help finding an alternative to boot camps in Oregon call 866-471-8579. At Zion Educational System, we know how to connect families with programs that can really make a difference. We can help you find the perfect therapeutic solution to your son or daughter's issues.

Alternative Schools For Troubled Teens From Oregon

Most boot camps are owned and operated by local government entities, such as county sheriff's departments, or the State Department of Health Services. In order to be placed into a boot camp for troubled teens the troubled child must first be "placed into the system". This system is the juvenile court system or foster care. If you want to avoid the process where your child "gets worse" when placed into the juvenile justice system, then look to other options like military schools, boarding schools, and residential treatment programs. These programs provide many of the same benefits as a boot camp experience, while avoiding the potentially dangerous consequences of getting your teen involved in the juvenile criminal justice system. Make sure you select the right option for your teen's needs.

Finding Help For Troubled Teenagers From Oregon

The problem with boot camps for troubled teens from Oregon is that they are not designed to deliver therapeutic intervention. Meaning, boot camps do not offer clinical services, therapy, or addiction treatment. If your child is dealing with anxiety, social withdrawal, grief and loss, or a divorce, they won't get the help they need through a boot camp program. In these cases boot camps tend to drive the troubled youth further into isolation, depression, anger, and may even cause them to act out in horrific ways. Don't make this mistake with your child. Those parents who do use boot camps for these types of "emotional" issues regret their decision later.

Treatment For Behavioral Disorders In Troubled Teens

Troubled Teen Boot CampsThe most important thing to remember is that if your child is struggling with emotional or mental health disorders, a boot camp is not the right choice. Boot camps are run by drill sergeants, and not counselors or therapists.  Boot camps require total and complete "buy-in" by the camper (either comply or pay the cost).  Boot camps tear down the camper and build them up.  Boot camps are designed for the defiant child who is heading down the wrong path. This is not the right approach to help someone dealing with mental health issues. If you were searching for boot camps but now you are interested in alternative options near Oregon, please call and speak with our Family Advocates. We can help assess and evaluate your situation and guide you to your best option in Oregon
