Behavior Modification Programs for Troubled Teens From Ohio
A behavior modification program, also known as a behavior mod program (usually followed by the term "troubled teens") is a decades' old form of treatment that is used to clinically-assuage self-destructive behaviors and emotions in teens.
First used in the late 60's behavior mod programs became the treatment standard for treating teens who were in need of residential treatment due to their continuous display of negative behavioral patterns.
As of 2008, Candace Bynum, a market analyst and expert on the matter, reported that behavior mod programs had risen to 650. While there are currently no new numbers to suggest otherwise, we can assume that there are still a significant number of these facilities (or perhaps more) that are still in operation.
For parents living in the state of Ohio, it's important to understand, that, while popular, behavior modification programs are far from the most effective treatment option for their out of control child. And, with the rise of teenage drug and suicidal epidemics affecting all corners of the nation, including that of Ohio, understanding the true nature of behavior mod facilities becomes all the more crucial for parents grasp.

Teenage clients have a greater chance of success when the entire family is helped, so our treatment approach addresses the experiences of every family member.
Traditional Behavior-Mod Programs vs. Modernized Troubled Teen Treatment
With teen drug abuse and suicide rates reaching epidemic rates in the state of Ohio and beyond, there has been an equal rise of residential treatment programs created to combat the behavior and mental health-related issues of out of control and emotionally inept adolescents.
That being said, with the rise of residential treatment options, so too is the proliferation of programs that are ineffective - either because they are simply attempting to capitalize on the growing demand of ’troubled’ teens in need of residential treatment, or they are simply utilizing outdated and clinically-lacking practices in order to treat them.
Moreover, parents from Ohio need to be knowledgeable about what forms of treatment programs are the most optimal, as well as the types of facilities they should avoid at all cost.
Among the many types of treatment centers that are ineffectual when compared to modernized styles of treatment, are behavior modification programs.
As to why parents of struggling teens should avoid such facilities, the answer is simple: behavior mod programs generally lack adequate psychiatric-nuance (or psychiatric care, altogether) and proven innovating treatments that have been developed within the last 50 - 60 years - like today’s top-tier residential therapeutic boarding schools are able to provide.
