Seven Stars Helps Struggling Teens Find Success
The journey into adulthood rarely occurs without a few bumps along the way. Fortunately, Seven Stars, a leading residential treatment center for young people on the autism spectrum, can help teens overcome their struggles.
At Seven Stars, teens are more than simply a diagnosis. Students who enter the Seven Stars program are assessed through a variety of tests to provide the best treatment possible. By examining each student individually, Seven Stars can tailor the program to meet each teen’s needs and develop a personalized experience. As a residential treatment center, Seven Stars works to make the stay fun, educational, and unique for every student. No two mental health challenges or teenage struggles are the same. At Seven Stars, treatment begins with the student. A focus on positive psychology helps build on a child’s strengths as opposed to preying on their weaknesses. A residential treatment center guides teens toward self-discovery and encourages exploration of new passions. With Seven Stars assistance, struggling teens can find new interests, learn new skills, and ultimately figure out who they truly are. The Seven Stars mentoring approach uses every students natural motivation to help them find success. Instead of attempting to frighten students into fitting a mold, Seven Stars allows struggling teens to lead their own recovery process.
A residential treatment center is an inpatient health facility that provides care and therapy to people that struggle with mental illness, substance abuse, and other behavioral issues that are too intense to treat with the typical therapy methods. Residential treatment centers offer adolescents the proper treatment for their issues and disorders, such as school refusal, depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, and many others. Residential treatment centers for adolescents usually utilize many different types of therapies, such as group, family, and individual, in order to give the most holistic treatment possible.
Research about RTCs
In a study, published in the NCBI, of 440 adolescents in residential treatment centers, researchers assessed the effectiveness and outcomes of attending a residential treatment center. In the study, it was found that problem behaviors in the young people went down significantly after admittance. In multiple studies, by the Journal of Child and Family Studies, on the outcomes of children and adolescents being in residential treatment, researchers found promising results on the effectiveness of residential treatment centers. In the studies, it was found that acute behavioral and emotional disorders benefited and sustained positive outcomes from the residential treatment, as long as the residential treatment center was holistic, multimodal, and ecological in approach.
According to the Huffington Post, back in February 2014, Selena Gomez spent around two weeks in a residential treatment center. She was admitted for “emotional issues” and “partying.” Later in the year, Hollywood Life wrote an article about her speaking of her time in the residential treatment center. She gave the reason that she had admitted into treatment because she had “lost sight of who she was.” She explained that she needed to get back to her roots and be guided back onto the right path.
