Oppositional Defiance Disorder in Teenage Girls
Oppositional Defiance Disorder Symptoms
Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or ODD, is a psychiatric disorder that can emerge in childhood, in which she exhibits challenging behaviors, constantly disobeys you and is basically stuck in a nasty mood when around anyone in authority.
While many teens exhibit some of these characteristics at various time, if your daughter is excessively defiant, intentionally disruptive or aggressive, visibly angry, vindictive, maybe even blaming others for her problems, she might have ODD. It is important to identify this Disorder properly, in order to ensure that her behaviors do not worsen, possibly leading to problems with authorities, or violent or self-destructive behaviors.
How We Can Help
Wings of Faith Academy is uniquely equipped to help struggling teen girls who are at risk because of Oppositional Defiance Disorder. Treatment for ODD can include training for you, the parents, to give you skills that will help in handling your daughter. Counseling and therapy may be beneficial, and a trained professional can determine whether medication will be effective, but it’s most important to correctly diagnose her problem, to determine whether it’s ODD or maybe a learning disorder, substance addiction, or even, possibly, from hidden abuse, being careful to treat the actual problem and not medicate the behavior.
Our structured environment and counseling will help your daughter get the help she needs in coping with her ODD. We will help her discover and face her unique issues and learn how to make positive changes in her life.
We understand how incredibly difficult it is when you are looking for help with an out-of-control or rebellious teen. Finding the right boarding school will undoubtedly be one of the hardest – yet most important – decisions you will ever make. There is hope for your daughter, and our safe environment with compassionate care and staff supervision can be the first solid step in finding a way out of the control that Oppositional Defiant Disorder seems to hold over her.
Our priority is to help your daughter with her Oppositional Defiance Disorder. We think it is very important for her life to be well balanced and so, not only do we offer a fully accredited high school diploma program, but also provide many activities, such as horseback riding, volleyball, swimming, caring for farm animals, wilderness outings, uplifting movies and more.
