The treatment philosophy at Alpine Academy is founded upon the principles of the Teaching-Family Model and enhanced by innovative clinical services. Every aspect of the program, from facilities to recreation, is carefully designed to create an intensive yet nurturing therapeutic experience.
Intensive therapeutic services are incorporated in every part of Alpine Academy. These services begin the day that a student is admitted. Through thoughtful, individualized application of the Teaching-Family Model coupled with intensive clinical work, we have found that our students are able to make significant changes, both in their outward behavior patterns and more importantly, in their inner thought patterns and processes.
Prior to admission, each student is assigned to a residential home and assigned a primary therapist. This multi-dimensional approach to treatment is designed to have long-term impact by addressing all facets of the student and her family’s mental health. By intensively addressing the issues that each student and her family are currently experiencing, we intend to help all parties develop new and more effective coping skills.
