Q. How quickly can I have my teen enrolled?
Some families need to work within a tight time frame and in most cases that can be accommodated. The minimum is 24 hours.
Q. Are there any financial aid or assistance programs available?
There is no assistance available at the present time, however we have listed some suggestion under the financial section. Occasionally medical insurances will pay for portions of the program.
Q. Is enrollment open or are there specific times of the year to enroll my teen?
A teen may enter the program any day of the year. The program is year round and academics is year round and self-paced.
Q. Can my teen run away?
Both the programs have a secure campus. The key pad system we use allows us to keep the students in and strangers out.
Q. How often are visits allowed?
Visits are allowed when the teen reaches the appropriate level as an earned privilege.
Q. How many teens sleep in a room?
Four to six depending on the room.
Q. How long do the teens stay?
It is recommended that the teen stay for 1 year giving the teen enough time to incorporate the changes they have made. Each teen progresses at a different pace.
Q. How is the family involved in the student’s program?
Each teen is assigned a family representative that is in contact with your teen throughout the day. Weekly phone calls are made updating your teens progress. In time, therapeutic phone calls are made for the purpose of working out family issues. Parents and teens communicate by letter as often as they like. A series of self-growth seminars that are nearly identical to the ones the teen participates in, is provided for the parents in two locations in the country (Las Vegas, NV and Atlanta, GA).
Q. What is your success rate with these programs?
This is a hard number to track, every parent has a different definition of success for their student. We have many families who stay involved with the program and will stop by for a visit or give us a call. If you would like to talk to a parent who has a teen currently in one of these programs or has a teen who has graduated, we would be happy to provide you with names and numbers. The names and numbers range from current to 15 years ago, and all in between.
Q. How do I get my child to agree to come there?
Each situation is different, Some students will come voluntarily others need a bit of persuasion. We will help you determine what is best for your child. (The decision is yours not theirs)
