When you find out that your teen from California is engaging in risky behaviors, it can be difficult to know what to do next. As a parent, it’s easy to want the poor habits, bad behaviors, and external symptoms to just disappear – however the underlying issues also need to be addressed. Troubling behaviors or patterns often come from underlying thought patterns, core beliefs, or past traumatic events. By looking at the true causes of the behaviors, healing can take place on a deeper level and lead to lasting change.
If caught early on, this can happen through outpatient therapy. For many troubled California teens, a more comprehensive approach is necessary – especially if the teen’s troubles have begun to impact multiple areas of their life.
Falling behind in school, family conflict, and difficulty managing emotions are all signs that a more holistic approach could be beneficial. With the help of a program for troubled teens, all of these issues – and more – can be effectively address.
One of the leading therapeutic programs for struggling teens is Red Mountain Colorado. Red Mountain Colorado is specifically designed to help troubled California teens ages 14-17 that are struggling with trauma. By working only with teenagers, Red Mountain Colorado has been able to tailor all of the interventions, programming, and approaches to align with the needs of this population.
Healthy Relationships Help Heal Troubled California Teens
Red Mountain Colorado is a residential treatment center for adolescent boys and believe that the way to true healing is guided by healthy and authentic relationships. The teens that we work with, boys ages 14-17, have become disconnected from who they really are and have been craving connection and meaning. Unfortunately, the meaning and connection they have most easily found have been in negative coping behaviors.
Though Red Mountain Colorado is just outside of Denver and outside of California, we help teens from around the United States, including California. Our picturesque campus offers a grounding and healing space for teens ages 14-17 to grow and heal. Here, students are able to understand, practice, and develop healthy and authentic relationships. We use the context of these relationships to help your son understand how his negative behaviors affected the relationships with everyone around him – including himself.
Healing Families at Red Mountain Colorado
Our relationship-based approach also extends to healing family relationships too. It is imperative that your teen from California truly understands how his behavior impacted his loved ones. Through weekly family therapy and on-campus family seminars, you will be able to reconnect with your son in an authentic and loving way. Red Mountain Colorado’s family programming is individualized so that we can tailor our therapeutic approaches to your family’s needs.
Red Mountain Colorado can help your son transform his life by building healthy, lasting relationships. He will leave the troubles of his past behaviors behind him, with the tools he needs to succeed in the future.
