How We Help Boys with ODD
We can help your son with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or ODD, a psychiatric disorder that can emerge in adolescence, in which he exhibits challenging behaviors, regularly disobeying you and, to put it simply, is essentially in a horrible mood (particularly when around authority figures).
While many boys display certain of these behaviors at various times, if your boy is excessively insolent, intentionally trouble making or belligerent, livid or ill-tempered, malicious, continually in conflict with authority, even placing blame on others for his mistakes, he might have ODD.
A supportive, Christian therapeutic boarding school for adolescent boys struggling with behavioral, emotional or academic issues, Mountain State Boys Academy is here to help your boy learn to resist making destructive decisions, to achieve academically and physically, while learning to accept himself as a special and valuable human being.
Is your son struggling, out of control? Has his behavior changed dramatically within the last year? We strive to help him get on the other side of bad behaviors, anger and self-destruction. The structured lifestyle of our home-like environment will enable him to develop better life attitudes, so that he may face and conquer his problems and challenges.
We make the most of both an accredited distance-learning program as well as alternative methods, since different students learn in different ways, and at different paces. We work very hard on issues and problems … but we also play hard. Our rustic campus will provide plenty of outdoor time for camping, fishing, hunting, equine and other outdoor activities.
