At The Envoy Group, we utilize our knowledge and experience to educate and connect families with struggling and at-risk teens to residential and therapeutic boarding school programs that potentially best fit their teen’s needs.

The Envoy Group makes families and their struggling or at-risk teens the center of its work.

Since 2006, we have assisted families in their search for an appropriate therapeutic boarding school, residential treatment center, or short-term wilderness therapy program for their struggling or at-risk teen. We have helped thousands of families over the years at no charge to families for our services whatsoever. We have visited and assessed over 60 programs across the country, have met the owners and staff, and receive regular feedback from parents who have placed their children. We’ve also been in your shoes, and we work every day to bring hope to parents who don’t know where to turn or who to trust in one of the most stressful situations any parent, grandparent, or guardian can experience Read More »

Empowering Parents, Grandparents and Guardians to Make Informed Decisions

When parents, grandparents, or guardians begin the process of looking for a residential or therapeutic boarding school program for their struggling teen, many don’t know where to begin or who to trust. It can be a very lonely and, at times, frightening experience for those who are watching their teen spiral out of control.

Given the nature of the internet, the programs that are easiest to find via search engines are the programs where parents will most likely place their child. However, there are literally hundreds of therapeutic boarding school programs across the country, and selecting a program that is uniquely qualified to address a teen’s specific needs can be one of the most difficult decisions a parent, grandparent, or guardian can ever make. Many don’t even know where to begin. Our experience puts us in a unique position to help parents understand the industry and make informed decisions.

Thousands of Families Served at NO CHARGE Every Year Since 2006

Through the power of technology and the unique network of professionals and programs with whom we work, we have been able to provide over forty-thousand families with residential and therapeutic boarding school program suggestions for their struggling or at-risk teenager. Our services are provided at no charge to the families we serve, and as such they are under no obligation whatsoever to heed our suggestions.

Our goal is to help parents find the programs that potentially best fit their teenager’s needs within their budget. While the programs we work with are not free or cheap, we have knowledge of monthly cost structures and can help you find a boarding school program that your family can actually afford. We can also help parents who are in need of low or no-cost options.

Residential and Therapeutic Boarding Schools don’t generally post their cost online because they want to discourage you from falling into the temptation of price shopping. The reality is that the cheapest program is not necessarily going to do the most good for your struggling teen. It is a sacrifice, but you need to ask yourself, “If my son or daughter were to die tomorrow, what will I wish I had done?” Unfortunately, over the years we have heard several heartbreaking stories where parents did not act in time to help their teen.

We recognize that the cost of therapeutic boarding schools is sometimes above and beyond the amount you can afford for your teen. Most families expend all of their savings and usually need to get help from family members and their faith community in paying for care. Your health insurance policy may also help pay for some aspects of care. However, if you cannot afford at least $1,000 per month in care, there are a few low cost alternatives that will at least offer the chance for your struggling teen to get out of his or her situation. Our low-cost list is a list of boarding schools we have researched over the years, though we do not have any professional relationship with them. Read More »
