How do I know my child’s individual needs and clinical condition is being addressed in a group setting?
There are many ways that we structure an experience specifically for each participant. First, we have distinct programs for adolescents from 13-18 and young adults from 18-29. The programming for each age group is specific to participants’ maturity levels, learning styles, and where they are in their therapeutic path. Admissions Directors help advise primary therapists on initial input from parents or previous treatment and the therapists then work with participants to fully understand each participant’s therapeutic needs. Then, the therapists routinely communicate with Field Instructors to ensure field experiences are consistent with the individual needs and ongoing goals. We also tailor aspects of the experience through things like dietary needs and gear that are appropriate for each size and gender of students.
