Research Based Therapy

Havenwood Academy uses evidence based therapies to deal with complex trauma. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Brainspotting are two long standing evidence based and well researched methods. Equine therapy uses the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (Eagala) which is the gold brand for equine therapy. Eagala is a revolutionary mental health treatment model incorporating horses who are highly attuned and offer a safe space for clients to discover their answers within themselves.

Havenwood believes in a multi therapeutic approach that includes individual, family, group, and equine therapies overseen by a treatment team. This supports work done residentially and in the academic setting.  Havenwood treats every young woman as a unique individual with her own struggles and needs and creates a treatment plan that is designed to specifically address her unique challenges. “Treatment,” therefore is an integrated approach combining therapy with academics and life skills designed to promote future success and personal empowerment.  

Havenwood continues to read and attend the most up-to-date evidence based training available.

"This is an absolutely amazing program. I felt so safe and loved at all times. These people are my family!"

-Program Graduate

"Being a high school dropout, a former meth addict, a teen runaway.. etc. was all in my decision to make, but the day I voluntarily accepted help is one of the days I am most thankful for in my life. This place truly works miracles. I am now 2 1/2 years sober, living on my own, & sharing my story with hundreds locally."

-Program Graduate

"I had always had problems with reactive detachment disorder since I was 7 months old. I was at a lost getting into trouble not really obeying my parents being disrespectful. My parents were at a loss also. That is till they found Havenwood Academy. I went there against my will but little did I know that they were going to help me so much. They had staff that love, care and support you. Not only did they say it they showed it. Even though I was not very happy about going to Havenwood at first by the end I was thankful that I had gone. They have changed my life forever. They taught me how to deal with my emotional problems in the right way. So I would recommend Havenwood as a very good place to send your daughter if she is struggling."
