A Safe Home Environment for Your Teen with Borderline Personality Disorder
We at Wolf Creek Academy can help your teen who suffers with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which they show great and persistent instability in their self-image, conduct and interpersonal relationships.
Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, discernable mood changes that are triggered by perceived rebuff, seclusion or failure. With BDP, you might see excessive sensitivity to critique, and feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of insignificance might lead to risky, impulsive and reckless behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while there are not established causes for BPD, factors are likely a combination of genetics, environment and brain chemistry. Higher risk might also come if a close family member has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.

Without treatment, your child can face grave complications connected to relationship troubles and legal or financial problems, many of those related to substance abuse.
Primarily therapy-based, treatment can be thorny; there must be great trust between your child and therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings. Distinctive treatment types might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
A Hope and a Future for Every Child
A faith-based therapeutic boarding school, we instill character, integrity, responsibility and accountability, all while giving your struggling teenager the opportunity to achieve a quality education.
Wolf Creek Academy’s family-model lifestyle offers a safe, nurturing environment that encourages teens to build positive relationships with authority figures as well as their peers. Our professional staff works with students to teach them invaluable life lessons and independent skills that will be beneficial for their future.
We educate the whole child from a Biblical worldview, assisting with their spiritual, physical and emotional development. We believe children should be built up, loved and nurtured with appropriate discipline, and that every student is unique with potential.
Counseling is provided for teens struggling with behavioral and emotional problems, and they meet with a licensed certified counselor at least once weekly. Daily group sessions address anger management issues and respect of authority, self-respect, or other relevant issues. The non-threatening atmosphere of this small group session allows them to learn from each other appropriate ways of managing their respective behavioral difficulties. Local psychiatric monitoring is available for students who require it.
Every student is dual-enrolled with the accredited Lighthouse Christian Academy, whose purpose is to support the mission of Wolf Creek. Whether a high achiever or moderately paced learner, children work at their own ability and appropriate level. We help students master curriculum knowledge via the Accelerated Christian Education system, utilizing daily classroom type settings, and providing any additional tutoring needed. Our therapeutic and nurturing environment is a safeguard for success.
Students thrive while having the opportunity to advance at their own pace; most often an accelerated pace which boosts self-respect, repairs self-confidence and promotes security for a successful future. Our program is designed to meet the learning needs of the individual child and each one is rewarded for their efforts.
So many teens have lost sight of a clear and positive future, but we see so many reach for their highest potential when given the tools and education to do so. Please call Wolf Creek Academy at (877) 477-9653 if you have tried everything, and are ready to see your problem child develop into a successful young adult.
