Reactive Attachment Disorder Help

The Effects of Reactive Attachment Disorder on Your Son

momandboyWe can treat your son if he has Reactive Attachment Disorder (or RAD), a rare but serious condition in which he’s unable to form a healthy emotional attachment with mother (or primary caregiver). Reliable care of a baby’s emotional and physical requirements enables him to learn to bond; deprived of that (i.e.: perhaps because of transient foster care or adoption), he may have difficulty establishing any close bonds.

There are two types of RAD (sometimes also known as Radical Attachment Disorder).  With one, he might be unbecomingly affectionate with complete strangers. With the other kind,
introverted, withdrawn, aloof, emotionally indifferent, inhibited.

How We Can Treat Your Son’s Reactive Attachment Disorder at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch

A secure and nurturing environment (such as what you’ll find at Teen Challenge) is critical in order for your boy to learn to create healthy connections.  Family therapy may be vitally important for his treatment of Reactive Attachment Disorder, by encouraging communication between you and him.  By helping you learn specific (parenting) skills, he can steer clear of additional social and behavioral issues later in life, and rather go on to enjoy healthy relationships with you and with others.

Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch…Transforming Troubled Boys into Young Men of Character

The very first Teen Challenge Adventure therapeutic boarding school, we are still finding innovative new ways to help troubled boys, even after 40 years of service.  We are a Christian therapeutic boarding school and ranch; dedicated to aiding troubled boys get a new start in life.

Our approach to value education is very structured and disciplined.  Teen Challenge utilizes a faith-based, integrated model of intervention, with Biblically based methods that incorporate concepts and techniques from various psychological approaches, all presented in a loving Christian environment.  We see academic success as a key to your son’s long-term life success

Choosing a facility for your struggling child can be a crushing task, and we know how important it is for you to find the best possible placement residency. If your son’s behavior is out of control, and nothing else has worked, his problems persist or are worsening, or his behavior is placing life at risk, think about Teen Challenge and what it can mean for your child.

We endeavor to help your son become a mentally sound, academically proficient, emotionally stable, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually vibrant young man. We have seen even the angriest and troubled boys transform their lives and become young men of character and integrity.

And, when your son returns to you after his year at Teen Challenge, we’ll continue to be there, with our critical stage Aftercare program, geared to help with transition issues he may face, provide continued encouragement and accountability and to prevent any relapse.

Our boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of goals and perseverance.  Our therapeutic program offers your son an opportunity for a new and more productive future.  Our students reach their full potential and experience the hope and future that God intended them to have.
