Many Troubled Teens from Minnesota Will Benefit From a Therpeutic Treatment Program
Lava Heights Academy uses performing arts: dance, drama, music and art as an avenue to deliver life changing therapy to struggling teens. Gone are the days when the only form of treatment was merely talking through a person's problem. Although this can be helpful and we do still offer traditional, one-on-one sessions with a therapist, we put our students in situations where they bond with our therapists and other staff members on a daily basis. This helps the teens to begin to genuinely trust and really open up to us.
Teenagers are faced with such challenging circumstances in today’s society. Less and less of them are open to sharing their difficulties with people that can help them. The pressures of growing up push them in all sorts of directions and it has become increasingly difficult to discern the sorts of problems that they are dealing with. Our staff members at Lava Heights Academy have come to understand that certain tools can be utilized to break the cloak of secrecy and mystery that surrounds the issues that teens are facing. We have found that through expressing themselves through performance and art, troubled teens are capable of letting their guards down and sharing their feelings like never before.
Our goal is to help troubled boys and girls overcome the emotional and behavioral issues that have stunted their mental growth and are now causing tremendous personal turmoil and family chaos. We help teens explore who they are thoroughly and completely, as opposed to letting one part or generalized issue take precedence over who they are overall.

Teens and Alcoholism
Some teens use alcohol for the excitement and they like the way it makes them feel. For adolescent boys, especially, alcohol is the number one drug of choice that is used more often and more of than all other drugs combined. It is a powerful drug that alters the mood and affects the mind and body in unpredictable ways. Because teens lack the judgement and coping skills to handle alcohol wisely, this sometimes results in alcoholism.
teenagers, like the rest of us, experience anger from moderate annoyance to rage. We actually experience it quite frequently each day. Anger is part of a generalized alarm reaction preparing us to solve a problem. However, when our anger grows toward a rage, we lose our ability to reason logically. Then, we make responsive decisions, which are immature and childlike.
