Comprehensive studies at Trails Carolina have shown a 98.9% success rate in families where parents are deeply involved in the therapeutic interventions with their teens.
Actively incorporating parents into the therapeutic process has proven to be an instrumental element in enhancing teens’ mental health and holistic well-being at Trails Carolina.
To maintain continuous parental engagement, Trails Carolina has established weekly touchpoints comprising therapist calls, bi-weekly coaching sessions, parent support groups and mindfulness classes. These touchpoints are meticulously crafted to keep parents updated on their child’s progress, fortify family communication, and foster self-care and mindfulness skills.
The Trails Carolina Family Handbook serves as a foundational guide for parents, delineating the program’s core values, tasks, and an array of educational resources to further assist families.
Families are encouraged to partake in Family Workshops, offering them a platform to learn and cultivate skills essential for a more harmonious family system. The workshops are complemented by weekly Family Calls with the child’s primary therapist, ensuring continued support and guidance.
One of Trails Carolina’s flagship offerings is the Family Reunification & Transition Support program, which underscores mutual therapeutic experiences for students and their parents. The initiative encompasses three reunification opportunities – Middle Ground, Graduation, and Common Ground – designed to facilitate families in reuniting, honing skills, and gaining requisite support as they transition back into their regular lives.
With these comprehensive measures, Trails Carolina remains dedicated to not only supporting teenagers in their mental health journey but also ensuring families come together, stay informed, and actively participate in the healing and growth process.
