Helping Boys with Depression at Brush Creek

Many people do not accurately understand Depression, and many who suffer from it are hesitant to ask for help, concerned by the stigma that may be identified with the illness.

We can help your son if he struggles with Depression, which is more than simply feeling sad. It is an omnipresent sense of hopelessness, bleakness and despair that engulfs his life, leaving him to suffer without relief.  Symptoms of depression can include irritability, self-hatred, difficulty concentrating, loss of interest in once-favorite hobbies, changes in sleep patterns, appetite or weight, or reduced energy.

teenboy (2)Brush Creek – Offering a Unique Approach for your Son With Depression

As parents, it may be difficult to recognize the symptoms, because the more normal response to it in teens is petulance rather than despondency.  Your son may show enmity, crabbiness and loss of temper.  Teen Depression often leads to self-medication with drugs or alcohol, and creates problems with schoolwork.  Depression is a also a major cause of teen suicide, emphasizing the importance of getting problems treated early instead of hoping things will simply improve on their own.

Treatment for Depression normally calls for at least some professional assistance.  Therapy might well be combined with medication to assist your child in regaining a more reasonable approach to life’s challenges, to uncover origins of the Depression, and to offer coping strategies for the feelings of helplessness and desolation.  He might find respite from symptoms by making healthy changes in his nutritional and exercise regimens, or by learning stress management techniques.  Most people respond well to treatments, and have partial or complete recovery from symptoms.

The first levels are very controlled but as the students improve and progress, they are awarded higher levels. The higher levels allow for more privileges, freedom, and responsibilities.

During a student’s stay at Brush Creek, each student will have the opportunity to learn various vocational skills such as welding, basic carpentry, plumbing, lawn care, fence repair & building, livestock care, and other ranch duties. The students are also involved with various community service projects. This aspect of the program is used to assist the students in building a strong work ethic to enable them to be successful in their communities, families, and future careers.
