Therapeutic Boarding Schools in Port Angeles, Washington

Is your teenager spinning out of control? Looking for a Christian boarding school for him or her near Port Angeles, Washington?

There is nothing worse than living with a teen spinning out of control, and no worse feeling than the sadness parents experience in the process. It is hard to know what to do and how to react when your adolescent daily reaches new lows in disobedience, dishonesty, and disrespect, and chooses every wrong thing.

We know, because we went through it with our boy. Raised in a Christian home and mostly home-schooled until high school, we suddenly found that we didn’t know him. He had changed seemingly overnight. His academics started falling and his interest in sports and old friends shifted to a new group of friends — the kind parents are wary of — the kind of kids that got kicked out of a public school, so the local private school took them in.

Unknowingy, our son was already heavy into smoking marijuana, sniffing solvents, drinking alcohol and just about everything else his new peer group dared him to do. The downward spiral was dramatic — all the way down to holes-in-the-walls rages, running away for days at a time, and finally threatening suicide. After months in counseling, the therapist proclaimed that there was nothing more he could do. He recommended a local residential program and school where issues could be dealt with and the influence of his negative peer group could be broken.

Putting our son in a therapeutic Christian boarding school was the hardest thing we’ve ever done as parents. We learned from this traumatic experience that therapeutic programs can be quite different and need to be selected based on their strengths and avoided if they have serious weaknesses. It’s important to know what those are.

Some therapeutic boarding schools are good, and others are not so good. Some target one set of issues; others are experts on other issues. But talking to them, they want to fill their beds, so they’ll often present themselves as “experts in all areas” having to do with behavior.  But that’s not always so. Some kids are just being rebellious, but others are really dealing with serious issues that may not be known to their parents. So choosing a “behavioral modification” program when a “therapeutic” program is needed can do more harm than good.  It can also be a big waste of money.

No one was offering to help us find the right school for our boy. We made a mistake to begin with, and that cost us dearly, but after months of research we found a good program that was able to help our son. Today, our family and even our son are thankful for that program.

The Christian boarding school we finally enrolled him in literally saved his life and got him off the downward spiral.
