    Moonridge Academy, a small Residential Treatment Center of 24 students, provides a specialized unique learning and healing environment for younger teens ages 11-15.  Students who come to Moonridge Academy are often beginning to experiment with high risk behaviors. These behaviors might include school refusal, self-harm, eating disorders, withdrawing from others, angry outbursts, poor peer and family relationships, and low-level substance abuse. 

    Moonridge Academy believes that younger girls should be treated in a loving and nurturing setting that recognizes the unique age and maturity level of girls this age. As a result, Moonridge offers all of the clinical intensity of an outstanding residential treatment center (small clinical case loads, 2 individual therapy sessions weekly, weekly family therapy sessions via the telephone, deep family systems work, etc.) that many struggling girls need without forcing parents to expose their daughters to "older girl" issues. The result is a unique and acclaimed treatment approach that effectively treats significant issues while still maintaining a comparatively sheltered environment in a place that "feels like home."
