Our program is geared to run as a normal day for our residents. On weekdays, they wake up, conduct hygiene, eat breakfast, participate in a typical school day and then have structured activities for the afternoon leading up to their scheduled bedtimes.

Call 800-537-5433 with your referral. Your referral must include a recent psychological/evaluation recommending a residential level of care. Our clinical team reviews each referral to determine if our program can meet the needs of the referred resident. This is the best way to get a resident in treatment and ensure she receives the program and treatment that best fits her needs.
The length of stay for treatment depends on the needs of the resident. Treatment is individualized based upon the resident’s need at the time of entry. As the resident progresses through the program and meets milestones, it helps determine when the resident can and will discharge from the program. There are also other factors that are considered at the time of admission that help determine the length of stay.
