What We Treat

We at Ironwood understand that families try their very best to connect with and help their child, yet parents find themselves feeling helpless and worried. Some teens simply need more than we, as parents, can offer. Ironwood can help you assess whether our program is right for your child.

Over the years Ironwood has developed a "specialty" if you will, in working with teens who are good kids but whose behavior is currently not acceptable. Common behaviors and issues include some combination of the following:

Poor self-esteem
Lack of motivation
Mood swings
Negative peer influence
Poor academic performance
Lack of caring
Distancing themselves from family
Lying, stealing, secretive
Defiant to authority figures
Bright yet drifting
Socially awkward
Physically challenged
Abusing substances
Out of control
Charming and manipulative
Anxiety disorders
Associating with wrong peer group
Cutting, self-harm
Depressive disorders
Disengaged families
Learning disabilities
Mood disorders
Oppositional defiance
Post-traumatic stress
Substance abuse
Victims of abuse and neglect

Our experience is that teens often have hidden issues that need to be uncovered and dealt with on a professional level in an environment where the student feels comfortable and trusts the staff. However, Ironwood is not able to work with teens who have the following history:

Major mental illness
Physical violence
Other psychotic disorders
Sexual abuse perpetrators
Youth convicted of a violent crime
Medically unstable individuals

Ironwood's skilled therapists are experts at treating troubled teens' emotional and behavioral disorders, without having teens fall behind in school. Most residents advance an entire grade level during their stay. Teens who have previously been hard to reach find success at Ironwood Ė itís what we do, itís our specialty.
