    There are many appropriately good therapuetic boarding schools (accredited, licensed, etc) throughout the country. The Family Foundation School, for example, has students from across the country and a few international students. Such is the case for many of the schools and programs. There are two good places to view a broad range of these schools as well as related programs (such as Residential Treatment Centers, Therapeutic Wilderness Programs, etc). They are http://www.stugglingteens.com (an independant web-site that allows you to search by category, type of school etc) and the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP – http://www.natsap.org). You can also consult a professional called an educational consultant for expert guidance and direction on school/program options (www.educationalconsulting.org ). Let me know if I can help with more info.

Also, If you are willing, please provide any personal feedback or insight based on your experience. You mentioned overcoming an eating disorder. Any advice for those young people currently struggling with this?

    I think therapeutic boarding schools can be great. I also think it’s worth nothing that those who have a strong belief in faith-based options can find real value in Christian boarding schools, too. The key, in both cases, are specifically-designed programs operated by people who care–and giving the kids the space and opportunity to really grow.

    Brad,
    Thanks for this response – and info. You are correct and I appreciate your adding Christian boarding schools to the discussion. It is, as you say, all about helping families find the best matched program for their troubled teen. We believe that spirituality is a key element to true healing and recovery. Thanks for sharing the hope4teen.org web site. God bless the work you are doing!
