About Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Alabama

Boarding Schools in Alabama

Non-religious, therapeutic boarding schools in Alabama are subject to strict licensing and regulations. For instance, instruction can only be given by teaching professionals holding certificates issued by the State Superintendent and the course work is to reflect the educational branches taught in the public school curriculum. The course objectives are to be made clearly available in the catalog, bulletin or brochure of the institution and a register of attendance is kept, recording the absence of each child for a half day or more. A physical education program that meets the standards of the Alabama Department of Education must be also be implemented.

The Alabama Department of Human Resources oversees the minimum standards for facilities housing minors up to 18 years of age. This includes ensuring that the building codes are up to date and that regular fire drills are implemented and all exits are unlocked during school hours. Instructors and volunteers must pass a sex criminal background check in order to be given supervisory and disciplinary power over minors less than 18 years of age. Additionally, the unlawful sale of controlled substances on campus, or within a three mile radius carries a penalty of five years incarceration, with no probation.

Private facilities are allowed the same health and welfare facilities that are available to public schools. This includes dental and physician services, dental hygienist, school psychologist, nurse, social worker and speech therapist.

PLEASE NOTICE...
Several prominent social media activists who believe that teenagers should be allowed to do and act in whatever way they wish are seeking to have all therapeutic programs for youth shut down. To that end, they encourage their willing followers to write fake negative reviews about such programs. The goal is to destabilize and force program closures nationwide. Remember this as you read online reviews, since many today are fake and the program can do nothing about them. Feel free to call us for more information about any program.

The goal for a therapeutic boarding school is usually to create an immersive therapeutic atmosphere (milieu), rather than just weekly counseling sessions. When troubled teenagers have therapeutic sessions backed up by activities, a positive peer group, and a supportive mentoring structure, they’re usually able to make much more progress than they would in a less structured environment. Moreover, they are less distracted when separated from negative influences and peers back home. Remember, although all therapeutic boarding schools have a similar purpose, there are significant differences between their therapeutic approach and the quality of their therapists. Be sure to research them as thoroughly as possible to find the perfect fit. Our expert help is available, ensuring that you find that one that matches your teenager’s needs and your family budget.
