How do I know if my child needs this?

While there are many programs for troubled teens and struggling pre-teens, the determining factors should be: have things improved with “local” options or are things getting better? The challenge with local options is the limited time typically available each week to implement change and that there isn’t any “in the moment” therapy.  At Asheville Academy we can focus on it every day in real time with a program developmentally appropriate for this age group. We are confident we have the caring staff, private campus, and therapeutic approach that can help.
