When a family finally realizes their troubled teen’s issues have reached a crisis point, the first question they may ask is, ‘when did I go wrong?’ There are feelings of guilt as they wonder why they didn’t see the signs or how they missed something that was happening right under their nose. Many times young adults feel shame or embarrassment and don’t know how to discuss what may be happening. They often turn to alcohol abuse, drug abuse, or act out with bad behavior. The realization that something has happened and needs to be addressed is the first step. It is important to work with professional counselors as a family to work through root issues. They can guide you through the process of healing and bring your family closer together.
Zion Educational Systems' Family Advocates know how difficult it may be to address past issues in your teen’s life. If your family is in crisis, please call for help. Family Advocates are available anytime at 866-471-8579.
No matter what has happened in the past, compassionate counselors can help your young adult heal and move forward. Usually when root issues are uncovered other environmental or behavioral problems surface as a result. Getting to the root of the issue is usually just the beginning and will be a process. It is vital to seek professional help so that communication and healing can begin. It is never too late to work on a successful future. The present is where you are today, and that is where we can focus. A bright future is where we can take you.
