If your teen has emotional issues, a mental illness, behavioral problems or struggles academically, you may be looking for a way to help. There are a number of boarding schools in Oklahoma available to help with various issues that many teens suffer from. The question is which one is the best one? There are questions that all parents should ask before selecting a school and here are two that you may not have thought about.

Is There Aftercare?

The treatment does not stop just because your child has gotten better. Many issues will need constant care and regular therapy to avoid a relapse. It is important to find out about any aftercare treatments that the school is able to offer and what to do should there be a relapse. Many of the teens will go home with tools to help them but that is not always enough.

The good news is that it is possible to gain aftercare treatment at home. Those schools that do not have a program will often refer the teen to another therapist or program to continue receiving the treatment necessary. However, this will depend on the reason for the boarding school.

If My Child Turns 18, Can They Stay If They Are Willing?

Just because a child turns 18 does not mean that they have finished their treatment. Many issues and mental illnesses will follow them into their adult lives. It is important to find a school that is able to help your child into her adult years or is willing to arrange an aftercare program to continue the treatment outside of the school. Some schools may be able to offer treatment up until completing education, like a normal boarding school, but others are designed for treatment until a patient is able to handle any situation alone.

It can be daunting to ask all the questions and time consuming considering the number of schools in the state. This is where Parent Resources will help.
