What Makes SCINSU Different?
Achieving Potential Through SCINSU Growing Principles
We’re With You Every Step of The Way
Our Team of Therapists Have Decades of Experience In Treating The Following
Hurting yourself—or thinking about hurting yourself—is a sign of emotional distress. These uncomfortable emotions may grow more intense if a person continues to use self-harm as a coping mechanism.
Anger & Violence
HarmfiViolence has many causes, including frustration, exposure to violent media, violence in the home or neighborhood and a tendency to see other people’s actions as hostile even when they’re not.
Not finishing homework, skipping class, having trouble making friends, struggling with passing classes. If these school concerns sound familiar, we can help.
Depression is an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that lingers or increases over time and is severe enough to interrupt daily activities.
Feelings of shame, depression, and loss of trust can lead to self-isolation in an attempt to hide behavior and avoid social interaction.
Coping With Trauma
Dealing with a traumatic event can be very difficult, as these events can often overwhelm us, and reduce our ability to cope with the stress they cause.
When anxiety becomes so overwhelming that it interferes with day-to-day activities — when it keeps you from going places, from doing things you need to do — that’s when you need help.
Addiction to social media, gaming, pornography, or any type of media that inhibits healthy behavior. Our therapists can help your daughter overcome the effects of harmful media.
Dishonesty is toxic. Dishonesty is actually a faulty problem–solving skill and can be a challenging issue, but there are effective things that can be done to address it.
Addiction is a complex disease, often chronic in nature, which affects the functioning of the brain and body. It also causes serious damage to families, relationships, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods.
Parent & Student
There are no words to express how grateful I am for the staff at Second Chances in Southern Utah! My ex-husband sent our daughter here and I fought with everything in me to not have her sent away somewhere even though I knew in my hear that something had to be done. She was spiraling out of control, but I still didn’t think a place far away with staff I had never met could do anything that somewhere close to my home couldn’t do. I was sad, depressed, angry at my parenting and I missed her something awful.
Now, 6 months later – the changes I have seen in my daughter are remarkable! She loves it there and actually thanked us for sending her. The staff, especially Adam has answered every question and concern that I’ve had (And I had a lot – Adam even gave me his personal cell phone to call day & night, and I did).
If you are considering a place like this for yoour daughter, I know first hand how scary it is and how it breaks your heart, but Second Chances saved my daughters life and our relationship. 6 months ago I never thought I would see my daughters true smile again. I thank God every single day for the staff at Second Chances. They are miracle workers!
