SYRACUSE, UT, August 22, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Teenagers today seem to be under more pressure than ever before. Some teenagers have emotional disorders and medical histories that require treatment for depression, acting out (defiance), technology dependence, anxiety, substance abuse, and other psychological needs. Some may have developmental problems or simply need help working through issues in their lives. Where families are struggling with these problems, they turn to treatment centers for help.
Considered among the best teen residential treatment centers in the country, Elevations RTC, based in Utah, provides care for teens between the ages of 13 and 18. It is a residential campus specifically designed to offer a high-school experience while providing a safe community. It is an inclusive, mixed-gender space that encourages students to be comfortable and interact respectfully with other students. Unlike other institution-like boarding schools, it offers a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment where assessment and therapy are provided in a regular school setting that enables participants to get the help they require before returning home.
Elevations RTC Utah emphasizes a relationship-driven model where family and peer relationships are at the center of the therapeutic approach, emphasizing respect, accountability, and the highest standards personal and academic. Aside from excellent academic support through accredited teaching staff, this community-based approach includes adventure, family, and aftercare therapy with fully licensed therapists, psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners to ensure the teens are empowered to build strong relationships and be successful in their lives.
Feedback and support from peers is encouraged at Elevations RTC. Students interact with and communicate with peers in a more open and unguarded way than they might with a therapist, patient, or another person, which can provide valuable insights for treatment. The co-ed setting, in particular, allows students to develop healthy approaches to male/female interactions through a variety of all gender activities.
Elevations RTC staff set the treatment center apart; by involving staff in every aspect of a student's activities and schooling, they are well placed to provide the emotional, and medical support required, for sometimes complex issues, in a warm and non-threatening environment. Clinical care is provided by board-certified psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practioners, and licensed counselors that use well-established, evidence-based approaches to treatment. Masters and doctoral level clinicians lead the individual, group, and family therapy sessions. Also, around the clock medical and nursing care is provided to all students and the center has a 1 to 5 staff to student ratio, which ensures they are always available when required.
Being located just outside Salt Lake City, in one of the most rugged and beautiful parts of the country, Elevations RTC provides a range of adventure activities for its students to build confidence and self-esteem. Students can go hiking, biking, climbing, and camping at nearby Bryce Canyon, Moab, or Snow Basin. Camping trips are available every other month and last for 3 to 5 days. Community-based activities are also provided. These help students to challenge themselves outside the school environment and provide experiential education that can be used to progress treatment goals.
Ultimately, students need to achieve academically to the best of their potential to succeed in their future endeavors. A guiding principle at Elevations RTC is addressing a student's issues, preparing them for higher education by teaching study skills, and providing college preparatory classes with trained academics. This enables students to go on to study at a university or college if they desire.
