Teen Mental Health Treatment
Many of the families we work with at Center For Discovery, struggle with issues related to attachment and adoption. This can manifest itself into reactive attachment disorder. This disorder is characterized by an inability to form healthy attachments to caregivers and others based on past trauma, abuse, unwanted pregnancies, & adoption issues where a child's sense of belonging and self is challenged. It is not uncommon for adopted children to experience trauma recall moments or neglect long after they have been placed. If not addressed it can manifest into serious behavioral and personality issues later in life.
Client treatment summary of children who suffer from RAD can be defined as:
Trusting, Firm, consistent, Loving, and Validating that is Predictable and one in which our children who suffer from these traumas and attachment issues leave Center For Discovery not defined by the trauma themselves as they move on to re-author their life.
