Elevations RTC is one of the top programs in the United States for troubled teenagers. Elevations is unique in today's therapeutic environments because: we have deliberate equipment, with a campus intended specifically to create a therapeutic community.
We are co-ed, representing what learners would discover in a setting of "real world" and crucial for learners to exercise while still in our secure, supportive setting.
We have high-quality standards of care that are reflected in our powerful accreditation, extensive personal medical/psychological approach and team-based approach.
Our students may be experiencing issues such as clinical depression, anxiety, attention challenges, substance use, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality features, bipolar symptoms and other associated psycho- behavioral concerns.
Students are housed in small single gender therapeutic communities which allow for student mentoring, team accountability and peer oriented social development. Unlike dormitory living, the school setting is coeducational to provide students with a more traditional high school experience. All classes are taught by teachers who are credentialed in their subject area. Our class size typically averages 8-12 students thus allowing for more individualized instruction and support.
Our clinical philosophy is based upon Systemic, Relational and Social Learning theories. Within the integrated framework of these three theories, the treatment team at Elevations individualizes treatment based on the family's needs. The clinical care provided relies on Evidence Based Practices which are well-documented, effective approaches to treatment. Individual, group, and family therapy are provided by masters or doctoral level clinicians. Highlights of our clinical program include; 25+ hours of weekly clinical and therapeutic services, expertise in ADHD & Executive functioning,Trauma work utilizing EMDR and Trauma-Focused CBT, Substance Use, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Art Therapy. Elevations offers 6-8 on-site Parent Seminars per year.
