“Milieu”: For any parent searching for help for their struggling teen at a residential treatment center, this is a word you may come across often. Milieu refers to an individual’s social culture or environment. The milieu of a residential treatment center provides an opportunity for social growth and improvement. At Solstice East, a residential treatment center for teen girls, the milieu is an important aspect of each students’ therapeutic process.
Why is the milieu important?
At Solstice East, milieu therapy helps create positive transformative experiences for students. In an environment where everyone in the community is invested in creating lasting change, struggling girls can find the support they need to make positive decisions. The community atmosphere at Solstice East includes everyone on campus – from students to staff. Here are some other ways Solstice East uses the milieu on campus to help girls find success:
- Community roles: Each member of the Solstice East community is assigned a designated role. These roles help contribute to carrying out daily tasks within the program. Roles range from assisting in the kitchen to creating a laundry schedule on campus. The community roles within the milieu help teaches teens responsibility, gives them a valued role within the community, and boosts feelings of self-confidence.
- Building relationship and social skills: At Solstice East, many of our students build trusting friendships. The community environment at Solstice East provides a unique opportunity for teens struggling to make and keep friends. Through the guidance of designated mentors and therapeutic staff, strong relationships are formed with peers and relationships with family members are rebuilt.
- Home-like setting of campus: The small, comfortable setting of campus allows for a close knit community feel. As a residential treatment center devoted to helping girls find and achieve success, the small size of our campus allows for the personalized treatment your teen needs to heal.
