Wilderness Therapy: The Better Alternative To Boot Camps For Troubled Teens From New York

Boot camps for troubled teens from New York are a last resort for New York parents who don’t know what else to do for their struggling teenager. When your child is rebellious, disrespectful, and irresponsible, you might think a little old-fashioned discipline can help.

Unfortunately, the truth is that boot camps for troubled teens in New York can be harmful. While their intentions may be good, boot camps end up sending all the wrong messages. They teach teenagers that respect is earned by power and that yelling at someone is the best way to help them change.

The Best Alternative to Boot Camps

At Trails Carolina, we specialize in a therapeutic approach that teaches accountability for your own actions, emotional maturity, and true respect for others. We offer wilderness therapy programs.

In the great outdoors, we show teenagers how to balance independence with trust and teamwork through positive communication. Here they learn that you have to face your personal difficulties to succeed at life, but that others can help you if you just ask respectfully.

More importantly, our approach integrates the whole family into the healing process. Unlike boot camp for troubled teens from New York, we’re not just going to yell at your child for a few weeks and hope the lesson sinks in. While we work with them in the wild, our dedicated family therapists will fill you in on how your child is progressing, and what has helped them, and connect you to families growing in similar ways. At the end of their time here, you will feel like you have the keys to continuing to support your child. They will feel like you understand them better than ever before, and your relationship with your child will improve.

If you’re considering boot camp for troubled teens from New York, please contact Trails Carolina at 800-975-7303 for a better alternative. We have helped many families, and we would love to help yours.

Trails saved my daughter’s life. Amanda is an amazing human and a brilliant therapist. I am so grateful to her, Science Steve, and the other wonderful people who could reach my daughter at a time when I could not.

Great life changing experience for our son. After becoming addicted to gaming during covid he was very depressed. At Trails he experienced the wilderness, Science Steve, learning survival skills and top notch therapy and support etc… I highly recommend! This gave our son and our family a renewed family bond full of love and excitement about his bright future.
