In addition to primary therapist sessions, our students receive a minimum of six hours of group therapy sessions each week. The following types of group therapy sessions which are conducted by our licensed clinicians each week:
(adoption, grief and loss, trauma, body image, social skills, depression in teens, etc.)
Specialty Groups Offers Unique Focus
The environment at Solstice East is warm and receptive, and we know that all of our students enter with unique experiences and needs. This is why we have developed an innovative therapeutic approach that offers various group therapy options. This provides our students with a unique opportunity to select the group offerings that will specifically help them on their personal journey.
Specialty groups rotate and may include, but are not limited to, trauma recovery, food and body, addictions, identity group, social communication, DBT or RO-DBT, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), adoption and attachment, and somatic/gestalt oriented-equine.
Substance Abuse / Addictions Groups
Our students may be struggling with a variety of addictions. Solstice East has a unique integrated approach that goes beyond a traditional “12 Step” approach.

Relationship-focused, Experiential Equine Therapy
While we believe that “talk therapy” has its role in residential treatment care, our experience shows that teens respond to a variety of therapeutic approaches to create lasting success.
At Solstice, we create powerful experiences through equine therapy that goes beyond talk therapy. These experiences help create connections between the problems and solutions in a very powerful, experiential way for teenagers. We use our equine therapy to help treat issues such as trauma, anxiety, and depression in teens.

Developing Emotional Control with DBT
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an empirically supported treatment model aimed at helping clients manage overwhelming emotions, problematic relational patterns, self-destructive behaviors and depression in teens. DBT has been shown to be very effective with a broad range of clients and issues related to emotion difficulties and self-destructive behaviors.
