Anxiety Disorder and Your Son at New Horizons Boys Ranch.
We can help your boy in his battle with Anxiety Disorder, sometimes called Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is an enduring condition marked by a harsh and debilitating intensity of fear, which may be characterized by panic attacks; specific phobias triggered by specific things or situations, and may include social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It can be solely mental and emotional, or perhaps present with physical symptoms (i.e.: sleeping problems, profuse sweating, fast pulse). Full-blown attacks can feel paralyzing to those who are suffering.
Typically, a diagnosis requires that the anxiety last a minimum of six months.
New Horizons – Providing Tools to Help Your Son with Anxiety Disorder.
Early Diagnosis and treatment for Anxiety Disorder is essential, to keep the anxiety from building to the point of clinical depression, maybe leading to self-medicating with drugs and alcohol, or other harmful behaviors.
Your boy’s treatment approach might include one or more therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the more effective means of treatment for high-level anxiety. That therapeutic approach is focused on recognizing thought patterns that can lead to anxiety, and then preventing negative behaviors by teaching new responses to those triggering events.
Some children might also benefit from medication to help in dealing with anxiety, although others find the side effects too difficult to handle.
You may find it difficult to comprehend the underlying causes that elicit such responses but with early diagnosis and professional help, Anxiety Disorder is generally treated with fairly high rates of success.
New Horizons – Where Your Troubled Boy Comes for Hope and His Future.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian therapeutic boarding School with a non-threatening, nurturing environment for boys struggling with emotional, academic or behavioral issues. We are here to assist your son in learning to overcome destructive decisions, to attain academic and physical accomplishments, to form Christian values and learn discipline, while learning to view himself as a unique and valuable person.
Is your boy struggling or out of control? Have you seen dramatic changes in his behavior? New Horizons is here to improve his behavior and life goals, to tackle and conquer his problems, in our structured lifestyle on our 10-acre Montana campus.
We utilize textbooks in our academic courses, and also various non-traditional educational techniques, which are designed to more fully engage your son in his education, employing alternative approaches if he has exhausted the conventional approaches. We provide counseling to deal with issues and struggles, and at the same time believe in time for fun, so he’ll have access to a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, fishing, swimming and horseback riding.
New Horizons utilizes a positive, incentive-based discipline system that not only teaches consequences for unacceptable behavior and foolish choices, but also fiscal management and responsibility. Your son will learn that that the choices he makes today can change his course, and he’ll face the world better equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in life.
