What is a therapeutic boarding school?

Therapeutic boarding school is a type of boarding school that provides troubled teenagers with proper treatment for their behavioral and emotional problems. It creates an environment that will enable teen kids to confront and overcome their personal issues, such as substance abuse and depression. Such a safe environment also allows them to continue their education while overcoming their problems.

However, the important consideration before sending kids to this kind of school is their apparent display of misbehavior or inappropriateness. Parents should be conscious enough to notice signs, particularly the earliest. The behavior should be out of the ordinary. A delay in intervention can result to more serious problems.

Remember that there are different cases or levels of being a “troubled teenager.” Prior evaluation by a professional is necessary.
