Connecting back with nature away from the hullabaloo of the city and it’s so many intoxicants that lure the young mind into its vice like grip. It also teaches that life isn’t just painting the town red. The number of expectations from every quarters draws daggers into the the young mind and he/she finds solace in addictions that make them believe reality is different and they don’t have to face it just yet. Torturing or punishing will not work and may lead the teen to other extreme. More caution and care with love and compounded by being empathetic to their feelings would work. The atmosphere plays a huge part. With the Anasazi Foundation Troubled teen program they would not be able to find time to struggle with their inner demons, as survival in the wilderness with minimal facilities will enlighten them how to get on in life.
How to enrol in one
The program though expensive and has been covered under the insurance scheme. It has be checked that it is accredited and licensed to operate. As these people deal with young lives whose minds already are spaced out.
At the beginning of the program there will be seminars. Parents should attend these seminars as well. other than this they must also attend 3 day family camp. Here the parents get chance to reunite with their children and they will stay for two nights in trials.
The motive of the program is teens who attended should realize at the end that happiness, quality of life, miserable everything depends on the way in which they behave or treat surrounding people.
They are sent on camps together for a specified number of days. Here they have to trek on their own carrying their essentials and cook a simple meal. Every day would be same with an hour of counselling for each of them. The last two days would be with the company of their respective families to get them together and they too would attend to all the activities of the camp the same way.
