Teens sometimes fall into behavior that negatively influences their emotional and physical future. When this happens, it may take more than parents can offer to get them to turn their lives around and make positive changes. A full term facility can give your daughter the intervention she needs to develop healthy coping skills. At Havenwood Academy, we are devoted to helping troubled teens and their parents get the aid they need to fix their relationships and move toward health as a unit. We have helped hundreds of girls with issues like low self-esteem, substance abuse, anger, sexual promiscuity, defiance and abuse recovery. Our caring environment is run by staff members experienced in adolescent psychology in order to ensure that each student is understood and approached from a therapeutic standpoint.

Our methods at Havenwood Academy are developmentally suitable for adolescents and we use a clinical approach that takes your daughter’s goals, personality, interests and history into account in order to create her personal treatment plan. Among the benefits of our facility are:
- Therapy Modalities – We have found that multiple therapy modalities are the best way to reach each teen on a personal level and give them the opportunity to find motivation. Through traditional talk therapy methods and hands on experiential options like art, equine, music and recreation therapy.
- We encourage collaboration between each department within the facility, including clinical, dietary and education, to make sure that everyone is on the same page regarding the care of each teen.
- Equine Therapy – Equine therapy is an effective and well respected form of therapy for individuals dealing with anger or self-esteem problems. Daily interaction among horses has been proven to improve the behavior of troubled teens and help them understand their own communication style better.
- Family Therapy – Most girls that come to us have a fractured relationship with parents or caregivers and each side must be guided toward properly strengthening it and developing effective communication skills.
- DBT Therapy – Dialectical behavioral therapy is implemented into the curriculum to help teens alter their behavioral habits and create appropriate coping methods. Through DBT and cognitive-behavioral methods, each student learns personal mindfulness.
