With an unprecedented number of troubled teens reaching epidemic numbers over the last twenty years, the US has also seen an equally meteoric rise of treatment programs that claim to fully rehabilitate troubled youth.

Unfortunately, like any booming market fueled by supply and demand, the troubled teen industry has its fair share of programs that are more interested in cashing in on the public’s need than they are in actually being a viable and effective Christ-centered service.

All too often, desperate Christian parents of struggling teenage girls are duped into sending their daughter to provenly ineffective treatment options such as behavioral modification and boot camp programs.Elk Mountain Academy is a Christ-centered boarding school for troubled girls with emotional, behavioral, and academic issues.

While these types of facilities may have once been the most popular choice among parents of troubled girls, we now know these archaic institutions are not only ineffective but in many cases, actually make behavioral and psychological issues even worse.

Thankfully for Christian parents of troubled girls, there is one type of residential treatment that has a much better track record in rehabilitating wayward youth than its predecessors: Christian Boarding schools for troubled teens.
