About Therapeutic Boarding Schools
Therapeutic boarding schools for struggling adolescents are academic institutions that also provide clinical therapy to those who need it. Teenagers who are treated through therapeutic boarding schools are unable to function at an optimal level in a traditional school as a result of being afflicted with emotional disturbance or academic failure. When enrolled in a therapeutic boarding school, teens from Maine receive help in a calm, nurturing environment that facilitates both learning and healing.
While the environment is structured, it is not overly strict and focuses on restoration and treatment. Teens throughout the country are using illegal substances and need assistance with substance abuse (including marijuana) restoration. Unfortunately, many of these addicted teenagers are not receiving the proper care or guidance that they need.
Recent mental health surveillance among children indicated that nearly 30% of teens between the ages of 12 and 17 drank alcohol during the last year. Nearly 20% of teenagers used illicit drugs during that same time period. Cigarette use is also prevalent, with 8.1% of teens smoking them during the past month (7.7% for girls, 8.4% for boys). If these teenagers had access to a therapeutic boarding school, they would have the treatment they need and be put back on the right path toward academic and life success.

Benefits of Co-Ed Therapeutic Boarding Schools
Therapeutic boarding schools are academic ~organizationpl2~ with the added benefit of giving clinical therapy for struggling adolescents. The environment provided by a co-ed boarding school is better suited to a teen with behavioral or mental health issues than a traditional co-ed educational facility. By putting a teen into a co-ed boarding school, they learn to be comfortable around people of both sexes. This facilitates a healthy learning environment, as well as prepares them for the outside world.
Psychologists state that teens placed into a single-sex environment are less able to relate to the opposite sex than those taught in a co-educational school. While the outcome is better for girls than it is for boys, the underlying concern, and the basic principle is the same. While proponents of single-sex boarding schools maintain the argument that such institutions promote better academic performance, research shows that single-sex education is unlikely to offer an advantage over co-ed schools. The impact on academics in a single-sex school versus a co-ed school is negligible, and even non-existent in some.
