Understanding the value of taking a holistic approach
Treating teen addiction and behavioral issues is a significant commitment. That is why taking a holistic approach to treatment is essential. Combining a healing environment with academics and science-based, proven therapies means everything is included and works together for the best possible outcomes–for true recovery.
Your teen will thrive in an unplugged environment that removes them from today’s toxic culture and digital overstimulation. Nature-based therapy helps teens not just “get away” from negative influences but to find “the way” back to the path of happiness and fulfillment.
Our academic program will help your child develop a strong sense of achievement. We will help your teen catch up, fill education gaps, and recover course completion credits if needed. The emphasis at our fully accredited private academy is on structure, high academic standards, individualized attention, and a scripture-based worldview.
Your child will be supported by evidence-based, scientific clinical therapies led by a fully licensed therapeutic team. We tailor an approach to the needs of your teen using a mix of individual therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and our unique equine therapy.
