Our goal at our teen residential treatment center is to help heal the family system. We are committed to providing support to not only help your child overcome their obstacles but help your entire family overcome them as well, strengthening the entire system rather than just the individual. Because of our commitment to this, one part of the treatment program here at Kaizen involves family treatment. This includes not only having your teenager come home to visit whenever possible, but also having the family come to us for treatment, which is a scheduled weekly therapy session for your entire family, designed to aid in the healing process. We also encourage families to come to visit their teens early in his enrollment here.
All of these things have a larger purpose of healing the entire family system, but there are secondary benefits to this as well. Firstly, your teen may have a hard time adjusting to all of these changes at once, be them the new living arrangements and environment or new peer group, and more importantly, the anxiety and loneliness that comes with being away from home for an extended amount of time. By being able to see his family regularly, this will decrease his overall anxiety, as that familiar element will still regularly be a part of his life. As we mentioned earlier, something like this can have a much greater impact on your teen’s overall healing, as this comfort and familiarity can help them feel strong and allow them to move forward in the healing process.
Additionally, for your family, being involved in this process will be able to see just how much your teen is progressing, giving your family the peace of mind and comfort needed to move along on your healing journey. Though the cause of the issues your family is experiencing has to do with the actions and behaviors of an individual, treating the individual won’t solve everything, and being able to treat the family as a whole will allow the family as a whole to move on.
Those are just two helpful tips for families enrolling their boys at our teen residential treatment center. At Kaizen, we are committed to providing specialized treatment for adolescent males with sexual behavior problems, helping them build healthy relationships while allowing them and their families to heal and overcome these obstacles. Each student is unique and requires specialized treatment, but the end goal of healing always remains. To learn more about our teen RTC in the greater Provo area, contact us today.
