SCHOOLS & PROGRAMS
DRUG & ALCOHOL REHAB PROGRAMS
In our experience, substance abuse is often accompanied by other emotional and psychological challenges. When we refer to a rehabilitation program, we identify those that provide intensive recovery work, while taking a holistic approach to also target any co-occuring diagnoses.
TRADITIONAL BOARDING SCHOOLS
Traditional boarding schools come in many different stripes and colors. We specialize in finding ones that match the specific needs of our clients, and which offer academic excellence in a nurturing, supportive environment.
THERAPEUTIC BOARDING SCHOOLS
The therapy in a therapeutic boarding school is integrated into the classroom and all other daily activities. A team of teachers, therapists and residential staff work together to help students achieve their therapeutic goals and objectives, and provide the structure and support necessary for success. Additionally, these schools offer small class sizes, individualized plans and academic support to help a student succeed in an environment that may have historically been challenging.
THERAPEUTIC WILDERNESS PROGRAMS
Therapeutic wilderness is a short-term, outdoor program that combines individual and group therapy with an experiential component. Although challenging, these programs are also very nurturing and supportive. The combination of behavioral intervention and assessment makes a wilderness program a powerful jump start to the therapeutic process.
STABILIZATION & ASSESSMENT PROGRAMS
When the situation is acute or if the full nature and extent of the issues are unknown, we may refer our clients to a short-term program for stabilization and assessment. These programs typically involve a team of clinicians (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, etc.) that make a comprehensive evaluation which may include cognitive and psychological testing, medication assessment and adjustment, and detoxification, where warranted.
YOUNG ADULT TRANSITION PROGRAMS
Transitional or independent living programs for young adults provide a combination of therapeutic support and life skills training: budgeting, résumé writing, job interview techniques, etc. In addition to program activities, the young adults are typically also volunteering, working part-time or taking one or two college classes. These programs assist young people with the transition from adolescence to adulthood and independence.
