Providence Pass provides families of troubled girls with the hope they need. Learn why Providence Pass in Florida is perfect for your adolescent girl, though you are in Florida.
It’s not easy to separate normal teen behavior from actual behavioral disorders. Your daughter is at a crossroads in her life where she really wants to assert her independence and is sure to make errors. For you as a parent, this time can be marked by confusion and uncertainty. You may feel torn between being too controlling and not wanting to let her drive her life into the ground. We know how difficult this time can be for both you and your daughter, but here are some warning signs that she needs help. Clear signs to look for are dramatic, sudden changes and unusual behavior that is excessive even by teenage standards. Indicators can include things like sudden shifts in friend circles, unpredictable sleeping or eating patterns, defiance, or rapid and violent changes in mood. If this is something you’re seeing in your daughter, we know it’s a very worrisome experience for you as a parent. Rest assured that many parents throughout Florida have had similar experiences and found hope through Providence Pass.

With expert psychotherapists, Providence Pass work with only a limited number of students in our lakefront, home-like facility. Our multi-disciplinary team is passionate about helping each girl get going on a new, healthier path in life. Providence Pass’s clinical staff on and off campus includes psychiatric specialists, physicians, and licensed psychotherapists as well as teachers, mentors and residential care staff. From teenage depression to oppositional defiant disorder, our staff is preparedand able to accompany your daughter with any struggles she’s going through! A lot of girls that attend Providence Pass have very specialized needs. For example, if you are struggling with an adopted girl who is beginning to act out, there are specific issues that we would look for. Our therapeutic staff are perfectly equipped to treat girls experiencing radical attachment disorder (or RAD), which is a very common struggle for adopted girls. Your daughter might be abusing substances. A lot of therapeutic boarding schools in Florida are not equipped to help girls who are getting into teen substance abuse, but at Providence Pass, we have the training and the facilities to help your daughter with this too.
When your daughter starts to fall behind in high school, it can seem like there is no way out. You’ve surely tried working with counselors or sought the help of outside tutoring, but no matter what, your daughter just can’t seem to catch up! The facts are that ordinary high schools and even some therapeutic boarding schools in Florida just aren’t designed to allow girls the chance to get back on track. For this reason, once a girl is behind, she tends to remain that way and they become caught in a vicious cycle. We hear from a lot of parents who are absolutely sure that their daughter has ruined her future already, but believe us, this is not necessarily the case. That isn’t the academic environment at Providence Pass. Here, we offer a fully accredited academic program through PATHLIGHT Prepatory. Knowledgeable professionals teach in a non-traditional style classroom, allowing each girl to work at her own pace. The scheduling of our academic program is year-round and daily classroom schedules are flexible too. What’s most important to us at Providence Pass is developing an environment where your daughter feels relaxed, can work at her own pace, and feel confident in her academics when she returns home.
Upward Bound provides a compassionate environment that nurtures the cognitive, emotional, and social development of struggling adolescents within a therapeutically supportive and educational community.
