The Dr. Phil show which aired on April 17, 2006 presented the story of Nick, a 13-year-old boy struggling with anger management issues and low self-esteem that affected his relationships at home and school.
On the program, Dr. Phil introduced Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of Dr. Phil’s advisory committee and, according to Dr. Phil, “the pre-eminent ADD/ADHD expert in America today.”
Dr. Lawlis suggested sending Nick to SUWS of the Carolinas to get his academic and emotional needs met.
This is the second time that the Dr. Phil show has chosen SUWS of the Carolinas to help a troubled teen and his family. The outdoor environment and experiential learning program at SUWS of the Carolinas helps troubled adolescents build upon their own sense of self-worth as they learn the value of helping others.
SUWS of the Carolinas will help Nick discover a new sense of self-esteem and reconnect with his family through a combination of individual and group therapy, family workshops, and a therapeutic wilderness experience.
The nurturing staff and licensed therapists specialize in helping struggling teens and their families with a safe and immediate intervention program that includes individualized treatment plans, weekly treatment planning sessions, and a three-day parenting workshop upon program completion.
