At this point, you’ve either already decided that your son needs treatment, or you are very seriously considering it. Either way, you’re at a fork in the road and doing your best to research and collect information. You’ve found yourself on this blog because your son is struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues. You want the very best treatment for him, and so do we!
When it comes to selecting a treatment center, there are tons of factors to consider. We believe that finding a gender-specific treatment center is absolutely critical to your son’s recovery.
Let’s face it, teenagers are easily distracted by the opposite sex. Gender-specific treatment allows our ‘boys to be boys’ without the distractions that can arise from co-mingling. Our goal is to create a safe environment and eliminate distractions so that your son is able to truly heal and recover. As a parent, you can expect the best results for your child in a gender-specific treatment program. Here’s why:
Teenage relationships with the opposite sex often create a sense of insecurity. In a treatment environment, we want to create as much safety and security as possible. When kids feel safe, they begin to open up about the emotional things that they might not usually discuss. That openness is such an important part of the recovery process.
When we remove the emotional ups and downs of teenage relationships, we can provide a more stable environment. That stability gives teens a chance to focus on their health and recovery.
At Clearfork Academy, we treat teenage boys ages 13-18. We remove the distraction of the opposite sex, and focus on the specific needs these boys have. They’re able to bond with their peers and our staff in a unique way because of the gender-specific environment. This leads to better outcomes and better long term results.
“Consistency throughout the course of treatment gives us that gender specific autonomous focus on our boys each and every day.” – Austin Davis, LPC-S, Founder/CEO
