Adoption Issues Programs

Experts estimate that while only 2 percent of American children are adopted, they make up one-third of the teens in therapy. Residential programs that specialize in addressing anger, control, trust, and abandonment issues can help teens work through the complex questions surrounding their adoption, and instill the coping skills they need to mature into healthy adults.

A number of CRC’s therapeutic boarding schools provide specialized curriculum designed to address the specific challenges faced by adopted children and their families. These programs feature adoption-focused group therapy, thematic workshops for processing the stages of grief, and access to a nationwide adoption support network. Within the safety and structure of the boarding school environment, under the guidance of licensed therapists, adopted teens come to terms with their personal history and family relationships while receiving a first-class education.
