Therapeutic Programs of Re-Creation Retreat

boarding schools for troubled teenslRe-Creation Retreat offers outstanding and affordable inpatient therapeutic programs for girls. We practice a unique and holistic therapeutic approach that includes Individual, Group, and Family therapies in the form of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Animal Assisted, Recreational Therapy, DBT, and Experiential Therapy. Our therapeutic approach is supplemented by a focus on healthy nutrition, exercise, sleep, and a limited need for pharmaceutical intervention as needed. Moreover, upon graduation, the girls are ready to return home and resume a more productive and healthy lifestyle. Re-Creation Retreat provides a home-like environment. Emotional and personal safety is the key ingredient for all emotional growth and behavioral change, so it is a central aspect of our program. Without safety, girls cannot heal from their emotional or behavioral troubles. Our top priority is to develop a sense of safety, security, and support. Typically, a teen’s world is comprised of numerous community-based systems; friends (peer groups), family, school, sports teams, youth groups, and other community-based groups. These communities are different, separate, but connected by one common factor…your daughter. Any one of these communities can either help or hurt, your daughter’s self-image.  We develop a community that is supportive and encouraging.

Real World Integration

residential treatment center for girlsOur foundation is a home-like residential setting that evolves to also include community-based opportunities. We use the daily interactions of students and staff as the “training ground” for therapeutic intervention. Students here get a hands-on real-life view of the most important precepts and principles of life. We teach the girls that if they choose to live by good principles, hold themselves and others accountable, and take responsibility for their choices, they will most likely prosper in all areas of life. Moreover, when they understand and take this in, they will positively contribute (give back) to their family, friends, and others. They will find fulfillment, purpose, and peace.

Growing Principles – Growing in Life

Young women who are struggling need coaching and instruction regarding principles and what is acceptable and what isn’t. Understanding and living by principles does not come automatically, or easily to anyone. Principles such as Choice, Accountability, and Control are critical to a healthy life. Without such strong principles, it is almost impossible to “get healthy.” Add in the condition they come to us, the loss of many of these principles may seem impossible to overcome, but we have seen again and again that our methods and therapies do work. We provide an opportunity and continuous training platform to help our residents to connect with each other and their families back home in an emotionally mature and consistent manner.
