In addition to working with your teen, we also work together with your family. Our Teen Family Program is set up so your family can participate in groups and attend other various programs with your teen. This is a safe environment for your family to honestly deal with problems you have with your teenager.
Wood Creek Academy has treated problem teen boys that have been diagnosed with behavioral and emotional problems. The more common of these diagnostic labels are:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Learning Disorder
- Adjustment Disorder
- Impulse Control Disorder
- Substance Related Disorders
- Video Gaming Disorder
- Behavior Issues
- Anger Issues
Mood fluctuations, oppositional defiance, impulsiveness, and inattentiveness are some of the many behavioral symptoms that compel parents, teachers and others to seek treatment for their troubled teen boys.
A diagnosis can also be a dangerous trap that many adolescents incorporate into a coping style. They try to use their diagnosis as a way to avoid taking responsibility for their lives. It becomes another way for them to remain on developmental vacation.
We will follow medical advice and arrange for any continued specialized treatment as may be necessary. We will speak with medical professionals from the home location and find appropriate medical care for you son.
