At Mountain Youth Academy, we use a trauma-based residential treatment program to address the mental health needs of children and teens. We offer a therapeutic setting to help youth address their mental health needs.
Mountain Youth Academy utilizes a number of therapies to serve our students’ unique needs. Among these include Equine Therapy, Yoga Therapy and more.
Mountain Youth Academy operates a licensed Category I non-public school through the State Board of Education so that every child has the opportunity to reach their potential.
Mountain Youth Academy offers individualized planning and cutting-edge technology in the treatment of girls and boys ages 5–17 at our facility in the rolling hills of Tennessee, only 13 miles from the Virginia border. We are a trauma-based treatment facility treating at-risk youth with an IQ of 70 or above. We offer a therapeutic setting in a secure facility to help children and teens address their mental health needs. We also have specific treatment programs for those with intellectual disabilities. Our treatment programs utilize adolescent and child therapy in both individual and group settings as well as other treatment methods to address each individual’s mental health needs.
In addition to our residential treatment program and educational curriculum, Mountain Youth Academy offers a few specialty programs, including neurofeedback therapy and treatment for substance use disorders.
Neurofeedback addresses numerous problems of brain dysregulation and is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum and cerebral palsy.
We also offer treatment to youth patients struggling with substance use disorder or co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders.
