Privately owned and operated youth homes are typically superior to what you would find at local city or county run group homes.

Typically, the government-base homes do not provide a Christian experience.

What is a Youth Home for Troubled Teens? Do they exist in North Carolina?

Privately-owned therapeutic youth homes and government-based group homes for troubled youth are totally different from one another in every way. There are both types of programs for troubled teens in North Carolina. Both programs serve the same population, struggling teen boys, struggling teen girls, and/or drug addicted teens needing out of home placements. Both types of group homes are uniquely created in a family-based milieu. Both types of group homes are designed to produce results through an "independent-living" and a family-style atmosphere.

But the privately owned group home in North Carolina is directly accountable to the parents of the children in the program.  Since the parent is paying for the service and is essentially the client, there is a greater level of expectation and  accountability so better services are offered.  In a government-based program the parents are not usually directly involved (the accountability is to the probation officer or juvenile courts). Privately owned homes tend to foster a sense of independence and self-accountability. Moreover, privately owned group Homes for struggling youth are safer, family-like settings where trusting and intimate relationships fosters submission to authority and resentment of authority.
