Where can I find a Summer Camp who will take my troubled teen from West Virginia?

Traditional summer camps are not equipped to handle troubled teens from West Virginia; troubled teens are kids dealing with substance abuse, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, criminal deliquency, and other severe behavioral problems. If you are a parent of a "soft" troubled teenager, meaning this teen is just beginning to be defiant, is struggling with peer relationships, angry, and isolating from parents (depressed, anxious, shutdown, and perhaps experimenting with drugs and alcohol) then a summer camp is perfect.  Soft troubled teens are "early intervention" candidates, meaning if they get therapeutic help early enough you can avoid a lot of pain and grief.  Get it early and you will never know what it is like to parent a full blown troubled teen.

The top summer camps offer an excellent therapeutic programs for troubled teens. The outdoor adventure activities for troubled teens at the best summer camps offer structured fun mixed with good counseling (group counseling and family therapy, substance abuse counseling and anger managment).  The top programs are safe therapeutic experiences for struggling teens, offering art, music, dance, and fitness as extra therapeutic fun.  For help finding the best therapeutic summer camps call Troubled Teen Search at 866-439-8112.
