Admissions Process at Re-Creation Retreat
Enrolling your teen girl (ages 13-17) in a residential treatment program can be highly stressful to both the parent and the child. At Re-Creation Retreat, our Admissions Process is easy and therapeutic, and purposely designed to assist, support, and guide you in a therapeutic and healing manner. In most cases, parents work directly with our Admissions Coordinator and front office team.
We realize the importance of parents receiving personalized support and assistance from the leadership of Re-Creation Retreat. Many details need to be addressed before, during, and after enrollment. The pre-enrollment phase involves assessing the child’s suitability for Re-Creation Retreat. To ensure the highest quality of care it is necessary to assess the status of each girl prior to enrollment. This assessment will enable the Admissions Coordinator to create the best match between the student’s needs and our therapeutic team.
The staff of Re-Creation Retreat is acutely aware that the actual enrollment process and the post-enrollment period can be a very challenging time for both the parent and child. Every aspect of this transition period is handled with the utmost care, to create an environment for positive change resulting in feelings of hope of a new future for both the parent and the girl.
