Residential Treatment

Residential Treatment at Mountain Youth Academy

The Residential Treatment Program uses a cognitive behavioral treatment model, which through the use of various individual and group treatment therapies, nurtures the development and practice of social behaviors. Treatment for children and adolescents is administered in a therapeutic and warm environment in a secure, locked facility.

Youth are assigned to treatment teams and groups that are best suited to meet their individual treatment needs. Each group’s daily activities and the therapeutic milieu are designed to assess emotional and behavioral difficulties, assist with safely exploring alternative behaviors and reinforce socially desirable behaviors.

Mountain Youth Academy’s key to working with troubled youth is its highly qualified staff members, who are committed to engaging in their mental health treatment and working intensely with them and their families for a successful return to the home and community.
