 Dark Sorrow
All of the juvenile boot camps (private and state) we have identified are for youth in the department of corrections or ordered there by a judge. This means, if your child is not under court order or in custody, placement in a juvenile boot camp is not an option.

Identifying local programs in your state is best accomplished by using resources in your community. Contact your local county attorney or juvenile justice office, community mental health center, school counselor, and in some areas, the public health department. All of these organizations know of programs for youth. Financial assistance may be available to you. Many programs are based upon one's ability to pay depending on income level. Other treatment programs accept health insurance and private payment from parents who can afford such an arrangement.
