A Unique and Powerful Approach to Housing
Rather than sleeping in a dormitory, Turnabout students spend their nights in a family environment. These host families become an amazing support group for the students as well as the student's family and help to encourage their progress.
This approach to housing is not only healthier for the teen, but provides many significant therapeutic advantages as well.
Benefits of the Host-Family Model
Turnabout's unique housing approach allows teens hands-on pratice of the new skills they are learning in a family setting where they are required to contribute. During the evenings and on weekends teens participate with their host-family in games, fun, and work.
Our experience has shown that having a solid, hand-picked host family who can provide support, structure, and ecouragement accelerates the recovery process.
This Unique housing program has become very meaningful to our students, their parents, and to referring professionals across the country.
