Behavioral Health with Christian Influences 24/7
The strength of the Evangelhouse Christian Behavioral Healthcare Center for girls from Vermont program is based on our ability to establish a supportive community environment for your daughter. Each staff member is responsible for leading comparable-aged girls on similar topics that are formed based on the unique emotional needs your daughter presents. These communities aim to be more like a family, with more warmth and acceptance.
The teenage years may be perplexing and demanding. Teenagers may want freedom, but they also want to fit in. While they may be far from their parents, they nonetheless seek guidance as they deal with important issues and moral dilemmas. Some teenagers may make wiser judgments, particularly when it comes to moral choices if they have a feeling of spirituality and a belief in a higher power. This is why Christian influences are so important during the teenage years, and at Evangelhouse Christian Behavioral Healthcare Center for girls, we can provide these positive influences around the clock.
