Adolescent Behavior Problems Explained


Sequel TSI is a leader in dealing with serious adolescent behavior problems. For over 20 years we have helped thousands of children and their families discover lasting solutions. We offer a several types of programs to address the following issues:

At Risk Youth

When a teen engages in dangerous behavior (for example, substance abuse or sexual promiscuity), these acts are usually warning signs of larger problems. Sequel TSI's programs work to overcome the negative feelings and unconstructive actions of at-risk youth to achieve long-lasting results.

Sexual Promiscuity

Children who sexually act out are often using this behavior to mask other serious issues. The key to understanding sexual promiscuity is to look beneath the behavior and try to understand the root cause.

Juvenile Delinquency

While most teens misbehave to a certain degree, there are clear signs that the level and severity of your child's juvenile delinquency may require professional help. Residential treatment can offer a solution and stop behaviors before they become more serious.

Self-Injurious Behavior

If your child is harming himself or herself (for example, by cutting or burning the skin), it's important to act quickly. Self injurious behavior is a growing trend among teens and can be a warning sign of larger problems.

Substance Abuse

We recognize the seriousness of teenage drug or alcohol use. We also know that it is important to look past the usage and focus on the cause. All of our programs have extensive group works built around drug and alcohol abuse.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is a clinical diagnosis that describes many of the teens attending Three Springs. Many children use their defiance to show a lack of respect for family or any kind of authority. We work with your teen to look past the diagnosis and focus on their adolescent behavior problems.

Adolescent Depression

Many adolescent behavior problems mask depression. Even mild depression can lead to self-abusive behavior. We work closely with each child to address his or her personal issues and find the optimal treatment.


Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can have a profound impact on a child's behavior. The extent to which these conditions affect a child with an ADD or ADHD diagnosis will vary; therefore, we customize the therapeutic program for each child to meet his or her needs.
