Group Homes for Troubled Teens in New York

Group Homes for Troubled Teens in New YorkLava Heights Academy can serve parents of troubled teens looking for group homes in New York.  We are not located in New York but we do serve families in need from all over the United States.  Parents generally respond better to residential facilities that label themselves as group homes.  Group homes hold double connotations.  The first category that group homes fall under is that of a facility for teens from broken homes or teens transitioning from jail to home.  (This also applies for struggling adults.)  Residential treatment centers for teens also  label themselves as group homes to simply imply that teens are placed in an environment that imitates home life. For more information about Lava Heights Aacademy please call us at 1-866-452-8772.

Parents who are desperately in need of help to figure out the steps to having their teens recover can contact our admissions counselors who can walk them through the process.  Our residential treatment center is not labeled as a group home but does offer similar services to struggling teens.  We excel because we provide a setting that mentors and helps troubled teens until they are ready to transition to something less restrictive. So parents beware of the label group homes.

Performing Arts as Therapy to Troubled Teens

Sometimes parents need solutions for teens with issues that are beyond their capacity to handle.  At Lava Heights Academy we understand troubled teens often come from good families but somehow along the way have gotten their core values entangled with the negative influences from peers and the world at large.  We support struggling boys and girls by providing them a well-rounded program that delivers powerful therapeutic and educational support.

We have come to understand that the pain and suffering of teens in crisis do not magically go away once they are in school or outside of a psychiatric office, so that's why we maintain a program that can help troubled boys and girls heal as they interact through our three levels of care: residential, academic and clinical.  Our performing arts program is echoed through all three of these levels.

We invite families to explore our programs and to contact Lava Heights Academy for the help that they need.  1-866-452-8772.

Staff | What our staff say

Our movement is our behavior allowing ourselves to express smoothly and openly, means finding our CORE movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional and mental states.

-Nate Meng

Performing artists are constantly being judged and measured, not only by others, but by themselves.  Self-observation (awareness) is itself the beginning of transformation.

-Dennis Lewis

Posture is also part of our emotional anatomy; how we hold ourselves somatically is related to how we hold ourselves emotionally and psychologically.

-Clyde Ford

Drama showed me how to interact with others.  Most of all, it gave me a way to have excitement in my life without the use of drugs.

-Kurt M
