Family Restoration

We consider Family Restoration one of the great strengths and distinguishing features of the New Lifehouse program. We recognize that the parents of the hurting teens we serve have also experienced hurt and hardship from the situation with their teen. While our primary focus remains on the child, we also recognize opportunities for parents to grow. We firmly believe that we are created for relationship, the most important of which is the relationship of the parent to the child. It is this relationship that lays the foundation for a lifetime.

We understand teens and the struggles that may come with their developmental stage as they express independence and begin to pull away from the family. We also understand the response of parents, when they react to the distance with their teen by pressing in too hard, straining the relationship and starting a negative cycle of rebellion and restriction.  Teens distance themselves or challenge the family’s belief system, causing parents to restrict behavior even further, which leads to teens turning to peers instead for support and rejecting family values.

Even so, New Lifehouse does not try to “fix” teens. We recognize the leadership potential and the God-given strengths within each teen, misdirected though these abilities may be, and we help each teen to know herself, make appropriate choices about values and behavior, and embrace service to others. Throughout this process, we also recognize the tremendous needs of parents and families.

Our mission at New Lifehouse encompasses restoration for the entire family. We work closely with families, from enrollment until the child returns home, to promote healing, facilitate growth, and ultimately see families reunited and restored to a healthy ongoing relationship. We require families to participate fully.

Parent Conferences

Parent conferences are held on campus three times a year. These are a mandatory part of our program. Conferences begin on a Thursday evening, continue for a full day on Friday and then the weekend is spent with your girl. Parents participate in workshops and groups that are designed to increase the possibility of success once a student returns home. Our professional staff provides a quality educational experience for you to help you in the restoration process.

Parent Contact

Through our advisor program, each parent is given weekly feedback from the student advisor. This feedback comes from the student, staff and treatment team. By everyone, including the parents, an individualized strategy is continually under development in order to provide the best chance for family restoration and successful return home for your girl.

We can also help you in your search for other schools for troubled teens, residential schools for troubled teens, schools for troubled youth, teen challenge programs, therapeutic boarding schools, or troubled teen schools. NLA is a Christian therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenage girls offering teen counseling for girls with adoption issues (reactive attachment disorders), self-harm (self-mutilation) or cutting, or eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, anorexia nervosa). Other behavioral issues and disorders we deal with include: defiance, depression, post traumatic stress, abuse, and general anxiety. If you have an out of control girl, please think about New Lifehouse Acadedmy, a school for troubled girls that offers teen counseling and teen counselors for troubled girls. We offer counseling for troubled teens and out of control teens and especially work with RAD girls and adopted girls with emotional disorders. If you are searching for residential treatment centers for girls, troubled youth homes, troubled teen schools or troubled teen boarding schools, you have found one. Homes for troubled teens and boarding schools for teens don’t typically offer teen counseling and therapy, but we do. A top therapeutic school, NLA may also be referred to as a “school for troubled teens”. Troubled teen schools and residential treatment programs for teens are often quite costly, but this one of few residential treatment centers and residential schools for teens that is affordable. NLA is an all-girl school that provides troubled pre-teen and teenage girls with counseling and adolescent therapy. It is more relational and helpful long-term than boot camps and military schools. The Christian therapeutic residential school and home for troubled girls serves at-risk teen girls from homes in the Midwest, including Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Texas, Arkansas and Illinois.
