Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From Tennessee
While no one looks back on early puberty fondly, in some cases, the sudden intense physical and emotional changes that occur during this period can pull families apart, ruin relationships, 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 Tennessee 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. Specifically targeted at ages 10-14, Asheville Academy for Girls guides troubled Tennessee girls on their journey through adolescence into young adulthood. 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.
The foundation of Asheville Academy’s program is rebuilding family relationships. A lot of Tennessee families have reached a breaking point when they reach out to Asheville Academy for Girls and worry that re-establishing their relationship with their daughter is hopeless. Programs for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy for Girls, help families realize that it is possible to reconnect with their daughter, no matter how faint of a possibility it sounds like when their daughter first enrolls.

Through our personalized approach, we have recognized that none of our students are troubled, but they may need more support in developing the skills they need to succeed.
