Adolescent Residential Treatment

Parents who are dealing with out of control adolescent behaviors start looking anxiously for residential treatment solutions. We understand the decision to temporarily remove your child from your home, and entrust them to a residential treatment facility, is the toughest decision you can make as a parent for your adolescent. After 20 years of working with rebellious teenagers, we understand this can be the best decision you make for your troubled teen, and your family.

Shepherds Hill Academy is a loving adolescent residential treatment, wilderness program, and an accredited private school in Georgia. We help adolescents who are dealing with behavioral difficulties, and who have been diagnosed with clinical disorders; such as: Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder (ADHD), Opposition Defiant Disorder (ODD), Depression, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

At Shepherds Hill Academy, we not only offer adolescent residential treatment, but a therapeutic wilderness program that focuses on person-to-person mentoring with spiritual and biblical counsel. Our program intentionally uses the outdoors and primitive living as an alternative to conventional adolescent residential treatment environments, removing modern distractions, simplifying choices, and rejuvenating one’s mind and critical thinking abilities.
