Teen Residential Treatment

Program Philosophy



Our focus in the teen residential program is to provide a home-like environment in a peaceful setting while treating teens as whole people. The program has been designed to take into consideration teens unique needs physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Our Program Design

Our licensed staff members use a wide range of treatment approaches and evidence-based practices meant to equip and empower teens and their families with the tools they need in order to make positive, healthy changes in their lives. Every teen we serve is unique and responds differently to different therapies and activities. Some of the treatments and therapies we use include:

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Equine Therapy
  • EMDR Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Acceptance Commitment Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Wilderness Therapy

Program Curriculum: Learning About Life & Resilience

Our program is centered around our four-week group process topics that help teens understand they have the resources they need to heal themselves.

Week 1-2: Looking Inward

During the “looking inward” weeks, teens focus on self-discovery and looking at their true identity. The groups will cover topics like labels, core values, beliefs, how they identify themselves, how others define them, and other topics revolving around who they are as people.

Week 3-4: Looking Outward

The main focus during weeks three and four is relationships. Teens will take a closer look at the importance of boundaries, types of communication, identifying support systems, dating, and familial relationships.

Week 5-6: Looking Upward

During weeks five and six, teens focus on cognitive function and emotional wellness. Topics for these weeks include things like brain development, mindfulness, forgiveness, acceptance, healing from trauma, nutrition, emotional regulation, and self expression.

Week 7-8: Looking Forward

The final two weeks are about implementing and living life differently. The goal of week seven and eight is to support clients as they transition from being in a residential setting to home. Some of the topics they cover will include “what to do when I’m not in residential treatment”, making and maintaining good decisions, creating a declaration of self-acceptance, understanding mental health and understanding addiction.
