”My son is acting out, he’s not listening to me, and he’s even begun to fall behind in school. To make matters worse, nothing we try seems to help! I need help for my boy right now!”
At New Hope Boys Home, we hear this from parents on a daily basis. When your son started to change, you might have written it off as typical teen angst, hoping against hope that he would grow out of it. As things got worse, though, you began to realize that his behavior wasn’t going to get better on its own. You started trying anything and everything to help him overcome his worsening behavior. You tried taking him to counselors and enrolling him in sports. Maybe you even switched schools or pulled him out altogether. When nothing seems to help, New Hope Boys Home might be the solution.
”What makes the therapeutic program at New Hope Boys Home different? How can this program provide help for my teen boy when so many other things have failed?”
At New Hope Boys Home, we provide a complete therapeutic solution. Unlike traditional therapy, the counseling in our program is done continuously. It is our belief that every experience can become a therapeutic moment if used properly. Whether your son is working with horses, studying in a classroom, or out rafting on the Colorado River, every experience is a valuable therapeutic lesson. Your son doesn’t have to be in a therapist’s office to grow and develop character, integrity, and respect for others.
On top of traditional counseling sessions, we offer equine therapy, a powerful treatment tool not found in most programs. Many people find horses to be intimidating and the experience of caring for them can be overwhelming at first. As your son overcomes this initial fear, he will begin to build self-confidence and learn greater lessons about his ability to overcome challenges in his life. For kids who are involved with drugs or other substances, equine therapy can be especially useful, since it teaches boys to care for other living beings rather than focusing on their own desires.
”My boy isn’t just struggling with his behavior. I need help for my teen boy in every area of his life, particularly his academics.”
New Hope Boys Home offers extensive academic recovery options. Many therapeutic programs neglect the larger picture when working with troubled boys. If your son is acting out, he likely needs a comprehensive plan of recovery which includes getting his grades back up to par. If you’ve grown tired of watching your bright and intelligent boy throw away his future, we can help.
At New Hope Boys Home, we provide your son with a fully accredited middle or high school curriculum through Alpha Omega Academy. When working with troubled boys, it is rarely sufficient to provide them with an education. These boys need to have their motivation restored and be reminded what it feels like to succeed. Through our exciting, interactive curriculum, your son will once again find himself interested in education. He will regain his ambition and build a foundation for lifelong academic success.
”Isn’t there a chance that my boy will fall back into old patterns after he graduates? If New Hope Boys Home provides help for my teen boy, can I be sure that the changes will continue after he’s not there anymore?”
The most vital element of our program at New Hope Boys Home is our emphasis on Christian values. The most important change any troubled young man can make is in their heart. In other programs, boys may be able to just comply with the rules until they graduate, only to return to their old ways as soon as they’ve left. That’s why we place such a heavy emphasis on leading our students in the way of Christian faith.
While your son is with us at New Hope Boys Home, he will take part in Bible studies, chapel services, and regular worship. In addition to these activities, he will be fully immersed in our carefully cultivated peer culture. Through therapy and the experiential aspects of our program, boys develop what we call positive peer culture. What this means is that your son will be guided and supported not only by our passionate staff, but also by his own peers. Oftentimes, troubled boys can relate to each other better than they could ever relate to an authority figure. As a parent, this is probably a fact you know all too well! This bond can be invaluable in supporting the changes these young men are trying to make.
