MGA’s treatment philosophy is built into everything we do. Our teen help program is designed to provide daily opportunities for growth and change through the implementation of purposeful programming. All staff members who have direct contact with our residents receive specific training in appropriately recognizing and responding to certain behaviors. External boundaries and limits are imposed until the resident internalizes them and is able to demonstrate the skills necessary to function on a more independent level.
Change occurs through courage and perseverance. Every day residents in our program for troubled teens are provided the opportunities to make decisions that impact them both in the short term and long run. Through continuous feedback, the residents learn from both their successes and shortcomings. Staff provide therapeutic interventions and an environment that promote safety and support the learning process.
