Teen Residential Treatment Center

We are a teen Residential Treatment Center for troubled girls. At Evangelhouse, we help girls with unique needs that seek a close-knit, healing environment. The Evangelhouse treatment center was established in 1995 to serve families with a quality residential treatment option for troubled teen girls.  In its quest to do so, Evangelhouse pioneered a treatment model that blends licensed behavioral healthcare with the structure of a traditional boarding school.  Since then, it has evolved to become the premier non-denominational Christian option in the marketplace of high-quality teen residential treatment centers.

Focused Residential Treatment for Teens

Researchers have found that gender-specific rehab is the most effective way to treat mental health and addiction issues. Evangelhouse is a teen residential treatment center exclusively for girls grades 6-12. We also don’t accept girls with higher-level issues that would be disruptive to our program. This would include girls with severe drug addictions, psychosis, significant running away, or cruelty towards animals.

With our positive peer culture focus, your daughter will learn to set boundaries with other girls. Because we are girls only, she will not have the distractions of boys and relationships around.  In our therapeutic milieu, she will learn to be assertive with her female peers in a safe environment.

Evangelhouse teen residential treatment center is organized around five areas of wellness in which students grow – Spiritual, Therapeutic, Academic, Social, and Physical. This structure provides a holistic perspective of a student’s level of functioning. Our professional services address the following symptoms and their underlying root causes in each area of wellness.

Quarterly, students participate in high-ropes confidence training and are taught to take on challenging tasks with the help of their peers. They are challenged to become aware of their communication habits and how to make meaningful contributions to others. Students’ unique leadership styles are identified and honed, as they learn to work cooperatively within a group.

At Evangelhouse teen residential treatment center, we believe that physical education for girls is an important part of the therapeutic process. By allowing students to express themselves through a variety of supervised outdoor activities, they will learn valuable leadership skills that will help guide them through life.

If you have any questions about the program please call us at 1-800-924-4012 or visit our contact page.

Residential Treatment For Troubled Teen Girls

Our Residential Treatment Center helps troubled teen girls by providing individual, group, and family therapy all in a supportive atmosphere. With supervision, students experience the social atmosphere, group therapeutic process, and spiritual tone of campus life. We nurture a positive peer culture that emphasizes social responsibility, accountability, and leadership. The staff leads weekly interactive small-group meetings to teach students character development within their current social interactions. As students progress, they learn to look beyond themselves to provide encouragement and support for others.

The teenage years are a time of significant physical and emotional transformation. Parents are at a loss on what to do as many girls start to act more independently and push boundaries at this time. Nevertheless, society is putting increasing pressure on girls as well, since social media and television make attaining perfection appear possible.

Depression and low self-esteem are on the rise due to technology. Bullying is even more prevalent as a result of cell phones since females cannot escape the demands of their social networks.

It’s possible for parents of daughters who experience depression, bullying, or low self-esteem to miss the warning signals at first. However, when these issues worsen, they may show themselves as issues with relationships, sexual conduct, cutting, eating disorders, or even violent behavior. The moment has come to take action and obtain treatment for your daughter if you notice these issues developing.

For you to begin putting your daughter on the road to recovery, a residential treatment center for troubled girls may be the ideal partner.

Treatment for Girls with Depression 

Depression is the most common primary or secondary issue residential treatment centers for teens typically treat. Depression is generally a more common, and potentially more impactful illness than most girls realize. Research tells us that an estimated 3.2 million teenagers in the United States experienced at least one major depressive episode. It’s no surprise that quality treatment options like Evangelhouse Christian Academy are in demand. Current statistics tell us that approximately 13% of teenagers will experience sadness before they reach adulthood.

At Evangelhouse Christian Academy, our students are included in a close-knit peer group. We limit our residential treatment center for girls to just 16 girls at a time. Also, with the absence of smartphones, our girls learn how to express themselves and their frustrations face-to-face, not through a screen. Overuse of electronic devices may be preventing young people from hobbies, religion, sports, friendships, and socializing, which might help them avoid depression in the first place. 

Our mission is to enable our girls to learn the skills to overcome issues like depression, anger, relationship problems, ADHD, and more. Part of the program focuses on the transition home as students learn to manage their symptoms in the next environment.

Depression rates among adolescents, particularly among females, have risen over the past decade, with around 8% of teens reporting being depressed. If your daughter has depression, now is the time to get help. As behaviors become more ingrained the more they are practiced, it’s important to break the cycle with your child as soon as possible.

When To Seek Help

Many families that enroll their daughters at Evangelhouse have already sought outpatient therapy before seeking a teen girl residential treatment center. However, outpatient therapy is limited in scope. A therapist has to be 100% reliant on what a child says in therapy to be an accurate portrayal of what is going on in real life. At Evangelhouse, therapists and students alike interact eating meals together and attending activities. We can see how your daughter is interacting with peers and coping with her frustrations in real-time. 

So what makes therapy at Evangelhouse unique? While general therapy can help, our therapeutic boarding school focuses on the most effective methods to help troubled girls. These therapies can include equine therapy, CBT, DBT, group sessions, individual sessions, and family sessions. 

Further, we can help our students try out new coping skills in the moment. This “in the moment” therapy has many advantages over outpatient therapy. The best time to practice a coping skill is when you really need to cope, not hours or even days later in a therapist’s office when emotions have returned to normal. 

There are several reasons why people choose therapeutic boarding schools like Evangelhouse over other options. A positive peer group and a support structure usually help troubled girls make greater progress than a peer group that has a history of negative or harmful behaviors. With staff present 24/7, you can rest assured that your daughter will be supervised and will receive multiple positive, therapeutic interactions every day. 

Evangelhouse teen residential treatment center has been assisting families just like yours for many years. Our goal is to maintain the highest quality therapy in a supportive, Christian setting at our residential treatment center for girls. You will take an active role in your family’s recovery. Well-trained professionals and loving therapists of Evangelhouse will be there for you and your family. While it can be painful for parents to think about missing their child, keeping a teen girl in their existing circle of friends and influences can be more painful.

Residential Treatment Center with a Small, Supportive Classroom

We receive a diverse range of teenage girls that include students with learning difficulties, attention deficits, or trauma-related emotional illnesses at our girl’s residential treatment center for troubled teens. Evangelhouse Christian Academy is willing to open its door to help any teenage girl suffering emotionally and academically. Our students may have been turned away from other school settings, but if your daughter can benefit from our program then we will work with you. It is our goal to offer a traditional, academic program that is demanding while addressing our residents emotionally. 

Ultimately, at Evangelhouse we aim to help our residents live productively, successfully, and confidently by applying the coping skills they have gained here.

Notably, we meet our students where they are. Our academic approach is to create an individualized academic plan that defines the academic targets, and assists with their learning and therapeutic process. 

Evangelhouse is a fully approved academic institution that can help students enhance their self-esteem, and self-efficacy, and become lifelong learners. While it is a fact that all pupils can learn; we recognize that some students need emotional and individualized support from their learning community to achieve their goals.

One great advantage of attending Evangelhouse is our smaller class size which allows for greater personalized attention. This also allows for more hands-on, experiential learning to occur. We believe our students gain a richer, more meaningful learning experience when they are able to use appropriate learning tools in the field.  Another benefit to our program is that our academic curriculum runs year-round. This calendar lends itself well to filling in the gaps your child may have missed in their previous academic experience. When your daughter completes her academic program at Evangelhouse Christian Academy she will attend a graduation ceremony and receive an accredited diploma. A benefit of receiving an accredited diploma is that our students may transfer credits if applicable.
