treatment program

The intensive outpatient program allows for both former residential clients and clients who have not been part of our residential program to continue or do their work in an intensive program that allows clients to work along- side the residential program from nine to two pm, four days a week. This allows individuals who no longer need 24-hour care or people who have chil- dren or need to work, to do the program in a slightly less intense fashion as long as they are in a safe and supportive environment when they are not at the facility.

Equine Therapy

Treatment Program

Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging treatment modality that utilizes horse-handling activities to generate powerful therapeutic metaphors-metaphors, symbolic and that reflect how each young woman relates to herself and others. With the support of peers and Rites equine specialist and attending clinical therapist, women examine these metaphors to gain insight into their fears, habits, and unconscious ways of relating. As issues arise within the equine setting, students have en-vivo opportunities to work toward the understanding and healing of those issues.
