Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From South Dakota
Puberty isn’t pleasant for anyone, but for some people the inner turmoil it causes can ruin relationships, pull families apart, and cause severe distress for all involved. While most teenagers face similar struggles, some are more resilient than others and do not experience the same level of distress.
During this difficult period, many South Dakota teens and their families may benefit from a nurturing program for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy for Girls that combines intensive therapeutic support and accredited academics. Asheville Academy was designed to provide support for girls ages 10-14 from South Dakota and across the United States that are struggling during their transition to adolescence. Rather than being “troubled,” we believe that our students are struggling with a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges that can be overcome by learning appropriate coping mechanisms.
At Asheville Academy for Girls, the focus is always on the family. Many South Dakota families believe their relationship with their daughter is broken beyond repair when they reach out to Asheville Academy for Girls. Once families leave Asheville Academy for Girls, they’ve re-established a healthy relationship with their daughter and learned how to stay connected through the next phase of her journey.
