At WinGate, our philosophy in the effective treatment of troubled teens is to create an enviornment of responsiveness while reducing the resistance the troubled teen has toward change, authority, and himself or herself. At WayPoints our philosophy is that every young adult is capable of dramatic internal change. When clinical issues are effectively addressed, real change occurs. Part of real change is also a returning to, or a re-discovering of oneself, revealing a unique, talented and gifted person.
