WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
Discovery Academy and Redwood Grove Diagnostics and Transitions after care treatment program is designed specifically for your son or daughters successful transition home.
The prospect of having your teen back in the home can create mixed emotions!
There is the excitement of your son or daughter’s return. However, there is also some anxiety as to how your growing teen will handle returning to the home environment. Not all teens will return home. Some teens are ready for college or vocational school. Whether your teen goes home or goes to college, our After Care program is designed to help!
PARENTING WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS AND SUPPORT CAN BE REWARDING!
You know all too well that parenting without the support you need, can increase anxiety. The familiar home environment with reminders of a more difficult time can be challenging for parents and teens. However, this time you are not alone! Redwood Grove, in partnership with Discovery Academy, has designed an After Care program. The After Care program will work with you and your son or daughter in your home. You can expect a customized program that will help your teen continue the progress gained while at Discovery Academy. We call the program “Bringing The Academy Home”. It includes three phases that will involve parents, teen and therapist along the way!
COLLEGE PREP AT IT’S FINEST!
The skills your teen learns at Discovery Academy will help when it’s time to move on to college. Most students who enter college find they are not as prepared for academic success as they really need to be. However, Discover Academy’s empowering academic program is specifically designed to rekindle a love for learning and an ability to study and learn on their own.
Laying a solid foundation in core academic areas is also important preparation as you move into more advanced classes in high school and college. Often students in traditional classroom settings fall behind without the proper attention from a teacher. Once you are behind, it’s hard to move into more advanced concepts with any long term success. While attending Discovery Academy, students are empowered to learn. They will gain the foundational knowledge of a subject before advancing to the next more complex or complimentary requirement. The ability to study and learn independently is a powerful skill for any of us! After returning home or to a college setting your son or daughter’s therapist and Redwood Grove aftercare representative will be an additional resource on your path to success!
IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN THERAPY AND ACADEMICS?
Of course, we all know that when a young man or woman are not feeling well or are struggling with emotional concerns and other challenges learning in school can take a backseat! This is why at Discovery Academy our therapists and teachers work together in order to design and help a student follow a program that will address core issues and facilitate learning in a safe environment. While in therapy, teens work to improve relationships and provide skill sets that can be applied to school, work or home. And with proper aftercare support at home, those skills and collaboration can continue!
