We can help your teen boy if he suffers from Reactive Attachment Disorder (or RAD), a rare but serious condition that leaves him unable to form a healthy emotional attachment with a mother (or primary caregiver). Reliable care of a baby’s physical and emotional needs enables them to learn to bond, and devoid of that (i.e.: from temporary foster care, adoption), they may have difficulty establishing any close bonds.
There are two types of RAD (sometimes also known as Reactive Attachment Disorder). Parents may find a teen acting detached, unemotional, inhibited or introverted. With the other kind they might be unbecomingly familiar or affectionate with complete strangers.
A Large Part of our Past and Current Students Have Reactive Attachment Disorders
Many children who were adopted exhibit attachment disorders in their teenage years. A stable and sustaining environment is necessary for your teen to learn to create healthy attachments and relationships. Our emphasis on family therapy is also critically important in the treatment of Reactive Attachment Disorder, encouraging communication between you and your son. We can help you heal the disorder, so your teen can avoid developing mounting social and behavioral issues later in life. Instead he can enjoy healthy relationships with you and with others.
