About Elevations RTCResidential Treatment Program for Teens

The main goal of our program is to help teens develop an understanding that there are solutions to the struggles that complicate their lives. Through a proven model, our therapeutic care is provided in the most holistic, impassioned way possible. We find that teens who have clinical issues such as mood and behavioral dysregulation, substance use, and difficulties at home/school, find success and recovery in our nurturing, pro-social environment.  Our typical student is generally found with one or more of the following issues:

  • Mood disorders
  • Emotional disorder
  • Substance use
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Alcohol use
  • Drug use
  • Grief and loss

In order to provide high quality care and outstanding treatment outcomes, we have developed a medically comprehensive residential program for teens that is best characterized by the following highlights:

  • Student population ranging in age from 13-17.6 years
  • Average length of stay of 8-10 months
  • 1:5 staff to student ratio
  • Licensed clinicians with master’s or doctoral training
  • 25+ hours of clinical contact each week, which includes individual, group and family therapies as well as parent training
  • Evidence-based substance use track that includes individual and group therapies and 12-Step meetings
  • A medical team that includes 2 Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, a Physician’s Assistant, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and a full-time nursing team
