Troubled Girls and Running Away
Troubled girls who become too overwhelmed with problems may feel a need to escape that is so great, the only solution they see is to runaway from home. In a recent study by the National Runaway Switchboard, one out of every seven children will run away from home before the age of 18. Luckily there is hope for troubled girls that are in need of interventions. If you are the parent of a troubled girl who is suffering greatly, has run away from home in the past or may be at risk for running away in the future, Re-Creation Retreat is here to help. For more information on how Re-Creation Retreat can assist your search for a solution and address your concerns, please call our kind admissions counselors for a free consultation at (385) 414-8865.
Reasons Troubled Girls Might Run Away:
School problems; bullying, ditching class, drop in grades, peer conflict
Substance abuse; experimenting with drugs like marijuana or prescription medications etc., addiction that is hazardous to health
Mental health issues; bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, mild eating disorders
Attention seeking; feelings of neglect leading to acting out
Following friends; assisting another troubled teen in a runaway situation
Risky activities; gang affiliation, pregnancy, thrill seeking
Re-Creation Retreat is a viable help option for troubled girls that are thinking of running away or have already attempted to run. Most troubled girls who run away from home will only be gone for a few days at most before they realize how hard it is to survive on their own, but others find resources that compound their situation, so it is best to take preventative measures. Seeking professional help can be the perfect preventative measure for parents of troubled girls to take. If you are the parent of a troubled girl that is out of control and threatening to run away then the time to act is now.
