Our mission is to empower teens and transform lives
Teensavers has had great success over the past three decades in transforming the lives of teens with substance abuse, emotional and behavioral issues. Our mission is to develop healthy, positive, emotionally stable and self-sufficient teens who are able to reintegrate into the family unit and fulfill their true potential in society.
At Teensavers, we begin by assessing the problem and determining the underlying causes. Then we create a personalized roadmap that guides the child through treatment and down the path to self-sufficiency.
We also work with those close to the teen to establish what issues within the family unit must be addressed to facilitate successful treatment. Parents and guardians are encouraged to take an active role in the recovery process and are updated on their child's progress on a weekly basis.
Even after the teen has completed in-residence treatment, we provide continuing care to help minimize the chance of relapse. We perform a follow-up assessment to identify any lingering issues and then determine which method of continuing care should be used, whether it be one-on-one counseling, family or group therapy, or our Self Mastery Leadership Program™, which helps the child examine and change the internal rules, values and beliefs that dictate behavior.
“I’ve seen addicts on their knees shaking helplessly, I’ve seen sons and daughters steal from their parents, and I’ve seen families torn apart by the sudden death of their teen. I’ve seen it all. And after 40 years it still breaks my heart. That’s why I do what I do. If just one more teen can be saved, then that’s my job.”
- Tim Chapman
When your teen is having a hard time overcoming addictions, there isn’t any member of the family who isn’t affected. It’s heartbreaking to see your loved one go willingly down a path of destruction, and it’s easy to feel hopeless about the prospects of them getting back to normal.
