Tennessee Teens Enter Residential Programs for Troubled Youth to Cope with Trauma and Grief
Even for the typical teenager, adolescence is a challenging time of personal growth and development. Those teens dealing with trauma, abuse, family dysfunction, and grief have a particularly tough time navigating these years. Since many teens don’t have the resources to deal with these difficult issues on their own, they often turn to drugs, risky behavior, and self harm.

What sets Solstice apart from other residential programs for troubled youth is their focus on the importance of individual therapy. As an adolescent in Solstice’s program, your Tennessee teen will get the following benefits from their primary therapist:
- Individual Attention. Therapists have a caseload of only six students ensuring plenty of interactions with your teen. This is a small caseload compared to other treatment centers.
