Outdoor Teen & Adolescent Behavioral Treatment Center

Behavioral health disorders, usually developing in childhood or adolescents, are a group of mental health conditions that have the potential to cause a significant amount of stress in a young person’s life

At our wilderness treatment center for troubled teens, we blend traditional clinical treatment modalities with wilderness therapy to empower adolescents and teens to overcome their behavioral issues and find lasting recovery.

Teens with behavioral disorders will often display chronic patterns of aggression, defiance, disruption, and hostility. Furthermore, the behaviors associated with this group of disorders will often cause problems at home, school, and within interpersonal relationships.

Signs of Behavioral Disorders

Signs of Behavioral Disorders in Teens

Adolescents & teens with behavioral health disorders may frequently throw temper tantrums, be openly defiant, and could end up hurting themselves or others. Additionally, if your son or daughter suffers from a behavioral health disorder, he or she may struggle academically, often resulting in school failure. These troubled teens may also receive disciplinary action at school or get in trouble with law enforcement on a regular basis. If these disorders are not properly treated in adolescents at an accredited treatment center, they have the potential to develop into personality disorders, depression, or bipolar disorder as adults.

At our wilderness treatment center, we recognize that for parents  behavioral health disorders can be in a young person’s life can be very disturbing. Therefore, we offer therapeutic treatment options to adolescents who are struggling with a wide range of issues, including behavioral issues.
