Academics in Teen Rehab at Red Mountain Colorado
One of the biggest concerns parents have about rehab is that their child will fall behind in school while they’re getting addiction and dual diagnosis treatment. That’s why we take your teen’s education just as seriously as you do.
At Red Mountain Colorado, we offer an exceptional academic program that your teen will participate in during the weekdays as they’re getting treatment. A balance of evidence-based treatment and schooling will heal your teen’s mind, body and spirit and allow them to pick up their education where they left off.
Our Academic Program for Teens in Treatment
Once your teen starts treatment, they’ll participate in our academic program five days a week, similar to how they would if they were still going to school back home. During the weekdays, your teen will spend the morning participating in experiential therapy to promote healing and recovery. This will help focus your child’s mind and prepare them for their school session from 1-4pm.
During these three hours of the day, your teen will work with our Master’s-level teacher in our newly-finished classroom. This teacher will manage your teen’s education plan, review their progress, keep their studies on track and guide them every step of the way. Your teen’s teacher is also available to provide personal and direct instruction tutoring if your teen needs it.
