Residential Programs For Teens
All clinicians at Red Mountain Colorado are trained in evidence-based and experiential therapeutic modalities. Each of our clinicians brings different approaches to therapy as they all have a wide repertoire of experience. We are able to take each student and match them with the appropriate therapists based on philosophical, personality, and clinical modality preferences. Therapists are all trained in brainspotting, a cutting-edge trauma modality; have extensive experience working with adolescents and their families; have multiple approaches for working with dual diagnosis students; and can shift between various modalities based on each student’s needs.
In addition to our unprecedented mindfulness programming for adolescents, Red Mountain Colorado also offers:
- Adventure therapy
- Cutting-edge, individual therapy including brainspotting
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Parent coaching
- Physical fitness
- Executive functioning skill building and support
- Academic support
Students are integrated into our local community in a radically different approach to adolescent treatment. Unlike the traditional teen treatment model, where students are isolated from the community in an extended-care model and then expected to go home and succeed, we believe in exposing our students to “real world” situations. This both makes treatment more fun and engaging, and increases buy-in for our students. It also prepares them better for life after treatment.
Connecting with the community helps students re-integrate into a more normalized setting after leaving primary treatment. This provides opportunities for students to practice their therapeutic and life skills, and reinforce their progress every day. Our location allows students to work on themselves without being removed from day to day life, and allows them to be, as one of our students put it, “real kids” while they are with us. With off campus activities typically happening daily in a structured, supervised fashion, students get to foster relationships in the community and find opportunities to explore interests which carry over into life after treatment.
Having a community-integrated program is vital to a successful transition home following treatment. With home visits, off-campus activities, and ongoing coaching, students have the opportunity to learn how to make their lives after treatment more fulfilling with positive connections and new interests.
