Individualized Weekly Therapy
As one of the leading residential treatment centers, our therapists are experts in working with adolescents and their families. Each one of our therapists has a caseload of only 7 residents, which enables them to provide a greater deal of personal contact and involvement in everyday lives. This is a small caseload compared to the industry average. This allows for students to have increased access to their therapist, and for the therapists to have time outside of session to spend with their clients. Students engage in both weekly individual therapy and weekly family therapy. Our treatment team meets regularly to assess each of our student’s progress and challenges, looking at the larger, holistic picture. The hours of individual/family therapy are customized and adjusted to meet the student’s and family’s treatment goals and needs. Our extensive individual therapy is one of the aspects that sets us apart from other residential treatment centers. In addition to weekly individual, family and group therapy, our therapists are interacting and engaging with students on adventures, camping trips, during mealtimes, and throughout the course of our daily, structured programming.
Therapeutic Alliance Between Student and Therapist
The therapeutic alliance, the relationship formed between therapist and student, is one of the most powerful factors in the healing process.
Using the relationship-based approach as our guide, the therapists understand the value of spending time with students beyond the walls of the therapist office. Building rapport outside of the office setting is critical to the development of a therapeutic alliance between the students and therapists, which is necessary in the healing process. As one of the top residential treatment centers, our therapists often participate in adventure therapy outings, camping trips, recreation activities, and mealtime with residents. Because they have a manageable caseload, they are able to be more involved in these opportunities.
