The goal of treatment at Re-Creation Retreat is to teach the students how to be happy and successful, regardless of how complex and difficult the world is. The students accomplish this goal by learning how to govern their own thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.
Individual and Family Therapy Schedule
At Re-Creation Retreat, treatment is happening 24/7. Students are at RCR to benefit from both the traditional one-on-one psychotherapy as well as the day-to-day programing and structure which is designed to reinforce and supplement the psychotherapy. As such, our students engage in an Individual or Family therapy session once a week. The typical session is one hour. Our team is available to/and does provide therapeutic interventions/sessions when needed to prevent a problem from escalating into a crisis. However, we work to hold to this schedule as it helps the students learn to maximize their time spent in therapy sessions by knowing that it is a structured service for them and that it is their responsibility to utilize their time appropriately.
Re-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
Our 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.
