Aftercare at Waterford is intended to support both the teen and their parents to create a plan that will enable them to continue making the progress they may have started in a residential treatment program. Aftercare is often essential in helping your child to fully recover from whatever addictions or troubling behaviors they were experiencing before. Our program will help them transition back into school, home, family, and friends to ensure their continued success.

Waterford is ideal for DeSoto, TX teens and their families who:

  • Have completed a residential treatment program or wilderness therapy

  • Need additional help completing high school
  • Are in need of more life skill and vocational training
  • Would benefit from both individual and family therapy

Waterford has three programs that are highly successful, and we can help to find which one is best for you. Waterford has the Partial Hospitalization Program, where the teen is placed under constant surveillance and helped both medically and mentally as they overcome addictions. There is also the Intensive Outpatient Program that helps the teens continue their sobriety by therapy, education, and frequent drug tests. The final program is the Therapeutic Day School that helps teen focus on the academics they may have missed through incarceration, suspension, or treatment. They can finish school through the program or get back on track to finish at a public high school at home.

DeSoto, TX – DeSoto is one of the oldest settlements in North Texas. It was in 1847, just eleven years after Texas won its independence from Mexico, that families first settled in the area that is now DeSoto. Curtis Parks, one of the first settlers in the DeSoto area, built his home in 1847. He came from Indiana with his wife Amelia.  A few of the other early settler families to the area were Thomas Cheshier, Zebedee Heath, Otway B. Nance, Allen Q. Nance, F. M. Hamilton, and John P. Voorhies.

By allowing your teen to fail and not fixing their problems for them, you can help them build confidence. If they need you to help talk the problem through, ask open ended questions so that they come to their own conclusions. You can role play different scenarios if it helps your child find their own answer, but allow them to find the answer that’s right for them.

DeSoto, TX – Adolescents with binge-eating disorder typically are overweight or obese. They feel like they have no control over their behavior, and eat in secret and when they’re not hungry. They also feel shame and remorse over their behavior. If your child is hiding food and you’re finding excessive amounts of food containers or wrappers, this could be evidence of binging.

The City of DeSoto was honored to be named an All-America City by the National Civic League at the finals for the prestigious award in Anaheim, California on Sunday, June 11th. Each year, cities across the country apply for this prestigious award but only ten cities receive it. For several years, the DeSoto City Council included an initiative in its Business Plan to develop an implementation plan for pursuing All-America City status.  In the 2006 Work Plan, their goal was to be acknowledged by the National Civic League with the All-America City Award.
