Trauma, Loss, and Attachment Issues

Young women handle trauma, loss, and grief differently. At Solstice, we help students work through these issues and learn to overcome these roadblocks in their lives. We will create a personalized therapeutic plan based on each girls’ unique needs.


Expansive, Home-like Campus

Our residential campus provides a nurturing environment for young women to heal. Low student to staff ratio ensures each child gets the one-on-one attention they deserve. Our small campus makes crafting meaningful, healthy relationships possible.

The Solstice Difference

A distinctive focus exclusively on young women in a supportive, home-like setting gives our students the room to breathe and an environment where they can grow and thrive. As students embark on their therapeutic journey, they develop deep, trusting relationships and build a better understanding of themselves and others. Our program was designed to address the specific challenges of teen girls.

Treating the Whole Person

The journey at Solstice East is centered around the concept of self. Throughout their time with us, we guide young women towards reconnecting with their inner selves. Every aspect of our program is interconnected, just as every aspect of our mind, body, and spirit are as well. We work from the inside-out to help students reconnect with families, friends, and community.

People, Not Programs

As one of the leading residential treatment centers, Solstice East is all about the people. We believe that people, more than programs themselves, make the most lasting impacts for students and families. Our goal is to connect with every student and their family. We help every young girl and their family repair, rebuild, and reconnect with one another.


Why Choose Our Residential Treatment Center For Teen Girls

Even in the darkest seasons of life, dawn always comes to welcome in a new light. We’d like to invite you on a new journey at Solstice East, a groundbreaking treatment facility for troubled adolescent girls that emphasizes the mind-body connection in our unique approach to holistic healthcare. 


Following A Path Towards Self Discovery

A hero is someone who chooses the right path, even when it is hard or if no one is watching. We use the archetypal Hero’s Journey to build guidance, support, and better decision-making. As students advance through the program, they learn more and more about their inner selves on their journey towards self discovery.


Inside Out Change

Change starts from within. Our clinical and residential team work together with the student on their individual needs and goals. We help students build lasting change from the inside-out.

 Instead of focusing on one specific challenge, students create positive changes in every area of their life. They build stronger, deeper relationships, develop positive values and principles, and work towards developing healthy ways to cope with the challenges they face.  

To help instill lasting change, we utilize a range of therapeutic techniques specifically tailored to meet the needs of your daughter. Our sophisticated therapeutic programming includes individual, group, equine, milieu and family therapy.
