Pregnant teens face a storm of issues, not only from the world around them, but from the world within themselves. Solutions to the problems that arise often seem out of reach, and indeed, some solutions may not be fully realized for years to come. However, a key behavioral concept taught in the ReFraming Treatment Program is that troubled teens need to focus on the "here and now." How and why they got where they are is something to be worked out with a therapist, if at all possible. Planning for the future is necessary, but action and focus on today, in the here and now, will help the struggling teen move strategically toward life-strengthening solutions, which will enable her to serve herself and her child more effectively.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD or O.D.D.)
Parents who seek help for their defiant teens or children often have a similar response to the suggestion that they need to change themselves: "What?! I'm not the one with the problem!" The ReFraming Treatment Program responds with a suggestion: learn the skills necessary to elicit the cooperation and respect of your defiant child, which include powerful crisis intervention strategies, appropriate limit-setting, and effective, reliable in-home structure, and see what happens. You may find a local Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist very helpful in this process.
Remember, finding solutions to systemic problems within your home is not a process of "laying blame," it is a process of eliciting strength.

Teen Drug Abuse
Teens today face a storm of issues, stresses, and temptations that pose a real threat to their long term well-being. Those who turn to alcohol or drug use (substance abuse), for whatever the reason (peer pressure, rebellion, experimentation, etc.), often find themselves out of control. The concepts of the ReFraming Treatment Program include methods to help young people realize that there is hope, and that there are real solutions to their chemical addictions/problems. Family, therapy, and peer group assistance are some of the first, and most important sources for help. A key behavioral concept taught in the ReFraming Treatment Program is that troubled teens need to focus on the "here and now." How and why they got where they are is something to be worked out with a therapist, if at all possible. Planning for the future is necessary, but action and focus on today, in the here and now, will help the struggling teen move strategically toward life-strengthening solutions.

Sexual Abuse (Victim)
Sex abuse victims face a storm of issues from the world within themselves, and often struggle with their ability to cope with the people and events around themselves. Solutions to their problems often seem out of reach, and indeed, some solutions may not be fully realized for years to come. A key behavioral concept taught in the ReFraming Treatment Program is that troubled teens need to focus on the "here and now." How and why abuse victims are suffering the way they are should be worked out with a licensed marriage and family therapist, with the support of healthy family members. Although parents often feel helpless when their child has been abused, the situation is not hopeless. Help is available. With the assistance of a therapist, the family can heal, and the child can gain strength common only to those who have survived and grown from pain.

Teen Peer Pressure (Easily Misled)
Teens are buffeted on all sides by issues in society. Among the most powerful influences upon a teen is his/her peer group. A powerful negative peer influence can motivate a troubled teen to make choices, and engage in behavior that his/her values would otherwise reject. Once influenced, the at-risk teen may continue the slide into problems with the law, substance abuse, school problems, authority defiance, gang problems, etc. Although parents may feel powerless as peer influence seems to take over their child, there are things that can be done. The strength of the troubled teen can be utilized to bring about solutions. The challenge of maturity and strength, in lieu of punishment, is often a far more effective motivator, which can help the troubled adolescent realize that his/her own well-being is of greater concern than the well-being of a negative group or peer.

Teen Boot Camps, Boarding Schools, Treatment Centers, Specialty Schools, Wilderness Programs, and Wilderness Therapy
SIM and The ReFraming Treatment Program do not question the need for out-of-home treatment for some troubled teens. However, our staff and associates (whose combined experience in the youth at-risk treatment care industry totals hundreds of years) can confidently say that an extremely high ratio of troubled teens who are placed in treatment programs should have never been placed. The solutions to their problems could have, and should have begun at home, if necessary with the assistance of a qualified family therapist.
Without question, many struggling teens who are placed suffer additional, unnecessary trauma, relationship problems, and even become exposed to worse issues than they had when they arrived for treatment. Often these young people experience staff, as well as peer-to-peer abuse.
Well-meaning parents are often victims of very clever marketing tactics from program representatives and independent industry marketers. Parents must realize that the PRIMARY GOAL of most of these marketers is to remove children from homes. Why? Because it lines their pockets with cash, and increases their job security. These are normally not therapists. And even if some of them are therapists, they are not YOUR therapists.
Before you opt for any out of home placement (even into our treatment center or boarding school), we suggest that you do at least one, if not all of the following, in any order you please:
Contact a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and get his/her opinion of the best course of action to help your troubled teen, tween (child), or young adult. Parents sometimes avoid this move, thinking that the experts they have found through an internet search are somehow more qualified to help with their situation. Consider the irony of this line of thought: you can obtain the unbiased, educated, licensed opinion of an expert in family relationship issues, who is bound by a professional code of ethics, OR you can obtain the biased, profit-driven, unlicensed opinion of an uneducated "expert" who knows nothing of the intricate therapeutic needs of your child and family. You choose.
To EXISTING Treatment Providers .....
We'll be honest and save time up front: Most existing treatment programs with which we have been associated do not meet our standards of business and therapeutic excellence. Their arrogance in treatment practice, paranoid self-interest, and unethical therapeutic business practice is in direct conflict with client welfare.
An example of one treatment provider you may consider, whose expertise and ethics we admire, is:
We are also very interested in developing relationships with religious, evangelical, and other Christian-oriented schools.
Although we will gladly support and promote stellar treatment programs that are not members of our alliance, we cannot offer our guarantees, nor our financial benefits to clients who are not being served by alliance members.
And although we are very willing to integrate existing programs into our alliance, we will not sway on our requirements of alliance members. We have found that unless existing programs see an immediate benefit for altering their practices and processes, they are very inflexible and short of vision.
Therefore, if you look to the center column on this page, these are the industry's current visionaries, and they are not yet inflexible. They are your future competition, and we are their allies.
We invite you to be our allies also, and again, if we are impressed by your program, will gladly promote you to our clients.
If you become listed on our link exchange it is a pretty good indication (to us and our clientelle) that your program is seen by us as solid in value, therapeutic relevance, and ethical business practice.
You should be aware that if we receive negative feedback from an educational consultant regarding your services, you will be removed from our link exchange system. We will also request the removal of any links or banners to our sites that you may have on your site(s).
With all of that said, if you are interested in becoming allied with us, we want to speak with you. Existing treatment providers have the staff and facilities to help people now. This is valuable to us, and to the industry.
Please complete our link exchange process, and make comments, questions, etc. therein. We will visit your website, and will be in contact.
To FUTURE Treatment Providers .....
We have a genuine interest in your success, and are eager to help you in many ways. However, your business AND treatment philosphies must not be in conflict with ours in order for you to become a member of the SIM Alliance. Membership is free. Our primary demand is philosophical, as displayed in business practice.
If you do become a member, you will enjoy:
Assistance with business plan support, industry data, etc. Some of our experts have unique experience in licensing. We can provide valuable insight into your business success.
Exclusive listing on all SIM websites
Referrals without referral fees SIM's current marketing process is generating an increasing number of daily leads. At present, we have been selectively distributing these leads to existing treatment providers, but are eager to have more options that are fully in line with our philosophies.
Developmental Support. Our business plan recently won national recognition for quality and feasibility. Part of our plan includes upcoming assistance for alliance members through grants and other programs. We intend to assist our alliance members in various areas of financial partnership and development.
Ongoing FREE staff training on ReFraming concepts, staff management, crisis intervention, parent training, etc.
Free participation in, and association with parents involved in the ReFraming Treatment Program.
Assistance and insight into web development, marketing, etc. Although we are in awe at the overwhelming amount of diluted waste there is on the internet, as profiteers seek to ensnare families and their children, we also believe that we can slowly combat and displace this trend through effective web alliances. We are as interested in your philosophical alliance as we are in a strong web alliance.
In many cases you will be a treatment option that is not offered by SIM, but which SIM selectively supports. SIM and its ReFraming services are quite selective by nature. Many families and teens are in such crisis that our methodical approach to helping them doesn't alleviate immediate, critical care needs. (We are reluctant to enroll students into the ReFraming Treatment Center if they have not previously begun participation in The ReFraming Treatment Program. At the very least we seek a commitment that the family schedule enrollment in the program before placement in the center.) YOU may provide a treatment option which, if necessary, will begin with out-of-home placement, and may or may not be augmented with our services later.
You are not required to market our services to be members of our alliance. We merely hope that you can see the treatment benefit for the full family system in promoting our services to your client base.
Benefits to Your Clients: The benefits we offer, you will be able to offer, simply because you are affiliated with us. College scholarship availability, post-treatment care, coaching services, training forums, etc., will all be at your disposal as a designated ReFraming Treatment Center (all benefits exclusively for those clients who are also enrolled in The ReFraming Treatment Program).
What do we want from you?
1. Read through our site.
2. Agree with our philosophy, and recognize your important role in that philosphy.
3. Agree to never pay a referral fee to anyone for placement of a child in your program.
4. Intentionally seek to build alliances with IECA members, RATHER than with independent referral sources.
5. Learn our treatment methods, training systems, etc., which are beneficial to students, parents, staff, and the management processes within your business.
6. Run a well-staffed program, compliant with all government regulations.
7. Be a member of our link exchange and/or affiliate program.
8. Integrate our services and guarantees into yours, as a designated ReFraming Treatment Center. Pay special attention to the relationship between ReFraming Treatment Centers and The ReFraming Treatment Program. Pricing is at your discretion, and specific policies are negotiable.
To Parents ..... See References to Troubled Teen Issues Below ..... ALSO, read this .....
You are a resource. You are a very valuable resource to other parents who may be experiencing similar problems with their children. If you own or manage a web site, consider joining our link exchange program. Regardless of what your resources are, we would also appreciate your involvement in our upcoming online forums. These forums will help parents whose financial resources make treatment help unfeasible.
Bookmark this site, and join us in our effort to help ALL people who seek us out, while trying to find help for troubled teens and at-risk children.
Educate yourself. Also, read the messages to the right, and thoroughly read through our site (links to the left). SIM is seriously concerned about the abundant unethical practices in the youth-at-risk industry. It permeates marketing practices, treatment programs, etc., and is littered throughout the internet.
STOP using search engines to find help. Be wise, and bookmark. If you're looking for help for your troubled teen or child, DON'T use a search engine to find that help. You WILL fall into a whirlwind of marketing traps and tactics.
Instead, bookmark the following specific, important sites:
Struggling Teens has a wealth of information for parents who are looking for answers. Stop searching the net, and look at what they offer.
Struggling Teens also provides links to educational consultants whose experience in the industry dwarfs that of most independent referral sources. If you speak with them first, they will provide you with unbiased information regarding programs and perils in the youth-at-risk industry. You will not get this lack of bias by contacting most of the web sites that pop up in the search engines.
Also, the Therapist Locator service has information on numerous disorders and problems facing troubled teens and their families. In addition to being a reliable resource for finding a local therapist, you will find valuable information regarding potential therapeutic issues facing your family members.
Indicator of Quality and Value:
A solid indicator of our support of a program or treatment service is if you see it listed in our link exchange, or on any of our sites' pages. We still recommend that you do your homework before placing your child anywhere.
You are your child's most valuable authority figure. Don't compromise his/her safety or well-being by thinking you are unimportant or unnecessary. Get the assistance of a therapist AND an educational consultant, each of whom can help you make the critical decisions without being swayed by marketers.
Not all therapists are alike. The ReFraming Treatment Program is based upon principles that work extremely well with therapists who have training and experience in family and relationship issues. We suggest you look for a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). An exceptional site through which you can search for a therapist in your area is www.therapistlocator.net.
