Being a parent isn't easy. And it can be especially difficult raising teenagers these days. But do you know where to turn if you are having problems with your child? What do you do when your teen is missing and you aren't getting help from your local authorities?
The National Runaway Switchboard is one resource parents can turn to. 1-800-RUNAWAY. All calls to National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) are confidential and free 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Call 1-800-RUNAWAY now to speak with someone, or check out our other resources and services.
If your teen is a chronic runaway and you are at your wit's end, it may be time to consider residential therapy. After you have exhausted your local resources and therapy isn't working, and in many situations the teen refuses to attend therapy, you may be at a point that residential treatment is your last resort.
