Solstice Differences

A distinctive focus exclusively on young women in a special, home-like setting gives our students the room to breathe and the environment in which to grow and thrive. Students embark on their therapeutic journey bringing deeper relationships and better understanding of themselves and others.

Treating the Whole Person

The journey begins with self as we guide our young women reconnect 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 then reconnect with our families, friends, and community.

People, Not Programs

As one of the leading residential treatment centers, Solstice East is all about the people. Our goal is to connect with every student and their family. We help every young girl and their families repair, rebuild, and reconnect with one another.

Be an Everyday Hero

A hero is someone who chooses the right path, even when it is hard or if no one is watching. We use the archetypical Hero’s Journey to build guidance, support, and better decision-making.

Inside Out Change

Change starts from within. Our clinical and residential team work together with the student on their individual needs and goals. From within, we can then build stronger, healthier relationships.
