Unfortunately, struggling teens generally struggle with engaging in healthy behaviors. Troubled adolescents tend to care mostly for instant gratification. These types of teens rarely take into account how their unhealthy behaviors are destroying their lives and stunting their potential and overall success in life. For teenagers such as these, residential treatment centers are a viable and popular service to consider.
