Residential Programs for Troubled Youth Offer New Jersey Teens Hope
When a teen is in the midst of major depression or other emotional challenges, their view of the future can be pretty dark.

New Jersey Teens Successfully Transition Home After Receiving Care at Residential Programs for Troubled Youth
Residential programs for troubled youth are sometimes a necessary intervention for those with significant emotional and behavioral challenges. Entering a residential treatment facility gives teens a respite from an environment where they developed habitual negative coping skills and behaviors. When teens complete the program, however, they often return to the same challenging surroundings that caused so many issues.
Solstice, one of the leading residential programs for troubled youth, believes the transition home starts immediately upon your New Jersey teen’s admission. Parental involvement and creating a structured environment are essential components to the long-term success of teens graduating from the program. Upon admission, parents are provided essential reading materials, an outline of the transition program and aftercare process, and information about family seminars covering a variety of topics.
Solstice believes your teen child can succeed in their recovery. They will prepare you for the next steps after their discharge using cost-effective, researched based transition options.
These three principles are essential to successful aftercare:
- Education: Teaching effective aftercare strategies helps your family realize the significance to your teen’s long term success. Family therapy and learning experiences teach successful aftercare.
- Community: Your entire family will work with Solstice therapists to create a positive support network for your teen.
- Innovation: Your family will learn new skills and processes specifically developed for your teen’s situation.
A transition coach will work with you throughout the treatment process. Shortly after discharge, they will travel to your home and consult with you about any issues or support you need.
Your teen will arrive back to New Jersey with you prepared to give them an empathetic, supportive environment necessary for their recovery. Learn more about transition support.
