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.
