Considering boot camp for your Tempe teen? Consider these limitations 

If you’re the parent of a behaviorally challenged adolescent, sending your child to a military boot camp for teens might seem like a viable solution. However, keep in mind the limitations of these programs: 

  • Insufficient clinical staff to effectively treat complex behavioral challenges 
  • A focus on instilling blind obedience at the expense of psychological well-being
  • Failure to consider psychological histories when developing treatment plans 
  • Management of symptoms rather than the underlying causes of mental health issues  
  • A one-size-fits-all approach that doesn’t take individual needs into account 
  • Underestimation of the critical role family plays in a teen’s recovery process 
  • Inadequate academic support leaves teens at risk of falling behind in school
