Therapeutic Boarding Schools in South Dakota
Looking for a therapeutic boarding school in South Dakota? Is your teen at risk, or already spinning out of control?
There is nothing worse than having your teen spinning out of control, and no worse feeling than the despair 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 the same thing with our son. Putting him in a therapeutic boarding school was the hardest thing we’ve ever done as parents. Worse yet, that program didn’t work out, so we were out a lot of money and still had no solution.
We learned from this traumatic experience that therapeutic schools 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 strengths and weaknesses are.
Some therapeutic boarding schools are great, and others are not so great. Some target one set of issues; others are experts on other issues. But when you talk 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 usually not so. Some kids are just going through a rebellious stage, while others are dealing with very serious issues that may not be known to their parents. So choosing a “behavioral modification” program when a “therapeutic” program is what’s needed can be a disaster. It can also be a big waste of money.
No one was available to help us find the right school for our boy. We made a mistake to begin with, and that cost us dearly, but after some time 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.
