RIMROCK, Ariz. (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
Copper Canyon Academy, a private therapeutic boarding school for girls, is being featured as the recommended treatment center in the Friday, November 2nd premiere of the new “Teen Trouble” show on Lifetime network.
In the documentary series from the executive producer of Oprah and producer of Intervention, teen expert Josh Shipp travels the nation to help families learn the tools they need to break down the barriers and break through to their out-of-control teens. The program sets out to give hope to parents, teens, and viewers, reminding them that it’s never too late for a teen to turn their life around.
The premiere episode features 16-year-old Chelsea. As the show’s website describes, “since being adopted when she was two years old, Chelsea has battled feelings of abandonment and depression and now self-medicates with heroin. She shoots up as many as a dozen times a day, literally taking her life in her hands.” Chelsea’s adoptive parents overlooked her addiction and failed to set any ground rules, allowing her to live in a “drug addict’s haven.”
Josh introduces the family to a former addict with a long history of abuse and personal tragedy to illustrate the perils of long-term drug use, then suggests that Chelsea accept treatment at Copper Canyon Academy.
“We are proud to work with Josh Shipp and this great new show,” said Paul Taylor, MS, Executive Director of Copper Canyon Academy. “Our school has been helping youth and families for over 15 years and our role as the featured treatment provider in this premiere episode substantiates the great work that our outstanding team of professionals does every day to help at-risk teens like Chelsea.”
Will Chelsea accept treatment? Tune in to find out. The show premieres Friday, November 2nd at 10:00 PM on Lifetime.
