Eva Carlston Academy

Salt Lake City, UT

Overview

Eva Carlston Academy is a small residential treatment program for adolescent girls who have struggled deeply to find their unique place in the world, a passion to inspire and guide them, and a sense of purpose in life.

Our program takes place in three elegantly appointed houses located in Salt Lake City, giving girls an intimate sense of home as well as access to the cultural resources and opportunities of a large city. In our family-style setting, girls feel safe, valued, and at ease.With only 12-16 girls per house, deep friendships develop quickly. By participating directly in all decisions that affect her house, each girl finds her own unique voice and place in the intimate community.

Our milieu-based therapeutic model, the Teaching-Family model, is research validated and serves as an effective way to help students achieve greater emotional health and independence by emphasizing 1) Stength- based approaches to skill building, 2) Problem Solving and emotional regulation, 3) Social-skills development, and 4) Preparation for independent living.

Eva Carlston Academy serves girls ages 12 to 18 who are struggling with emotional and behavioral issues, included but not limited to: Depression, Anxiety, Defiance & behavioral issues, ADHD, Self-harm, Eating disorders, Suicidal ideations, Substance Abuse, Physical and Sexual Abuse. We can safely accommodate those with diabetes, special dietary restrictions, and other medical conditions.

Placing my daughter in the care of Eva Carlston was one of toughest decisions I’ve ever made but one of the very best also. This is an outstanding program but it was definitely not easy. In a little over a year, my daughter graduated with her high school diploma and completed the therapeutic program at ECA. I sent my daughter away because she was caught in a downward spiral after a lifetime of failed interventions. Today, our relationship has regained its prior strength. She cares about herself, what she is doing and where she is going. Eva Carlston gave her the logistical and emotional skills necessary for success. It’s hard to ask for more than the results we got from ECA. It was a difficult decision but I would absolutely do it again. I do plan to write a more detailed review because, if you are considering sending your daughter to ECA, you might like more information that I have provided here. However, for now, I hope this might be helpful for someone else in my position.
