Ensuring Your Child’s Safety at Alpine Academy

Discover why Alpine Academy sets the benchmark for child safety in residential treatment. Instead of relying on empty assurances, we invite you to examine the facts for yourself. Our affiliations, licensing standards, and additional safety measures exemplify our commitment to providing the safest environment for your child.

Setting the Gold Standard

Alpine Academy adheres to the highest industry standards for licensing and staff qualifications. Our affiliations with respected organizations such as SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) and NATSAP (National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs) demonstrate our dedication to exceeding regulatory requirements in substance abuse prevention and mental health treatment.

The Alpine Academy Difference

What sets Alpine Academy apart is our unwavering commitment to exceptional care, exceeding industry standards. Key aspects include:
Teaching-Family Model

Every residential staff member at Alpine Academy is trained and can earn certification in our evidence-based behavioral model. This means our line staff are proficient in an evidence-based approach, which is the key factor in their preparedness for any situation. Being an accredited TFA agency is a rare distinction that sets Alpine Academy apart.

Transparent Treatment Approach

At Alpine Academy, parents have unprecedented access to their child’s progress and well-being through our parent portal. Unlike many treatment centers where communication primarily comes from the therapist, we believe in open and direct communication. Our parents receive live updates on their child’s treatment journey, facilitated by direct communication with line staff, educators, and therapists, without unnecessary gatekeeping. This ensures a transparent and comprehensive understanding of their child’s development.

Robust and Anonymous Consumer Evaluation Process

All our staff are regularly reviewed by our own students, and staff peers. This unique feedback loop allows us to continuously improve and tailor treatment to each individual. These monthly evaluations help us promptly address any concerns or issues that arise, ensuring the highest quality of care for your child.

Quarterly Safety Interviews

As an additional precaution, a member of our leadership team administers a confidential safety and well being questionnaire. This safe and confidential setting allows students to disclose any experiences or discomfort they may have encountered.


Alpine Academy provides a safe, affirming environment for students to explore their identities. Our goal is to support youth in discovering their true selves through therapeutic community engagement. This commitment extends to our staff, fostering a diverse and inclusive environment.

State-of-the-Art Camera Technology
