Residential Treatment Programs for Teenage Girls

The CERTS Group offers specialized residential treatment.

We know that every patient is unique. In a treatment setting, what works for one person may not work for another. Therapeutic approaches, average age and personal interests make a difference in the overall success of treatment, as well as the length of time it takes to recover. This is why the CERTS Group schools offer residential treatment.

How Our Therapy Programs are Different

Residential treatment is a level of care that combines 24/7 support staff, individual therapy, group therapy and education. It is ideal for the young person who makes poor choices, is engaged in dangerous behaviors (e.g. cutting, eating disordered behaviors, drug or alcohol abuse, etc.) and/or needs a high level of support for mental or behavioral issues. By contrast, acute care (hospital setting) is a higher level of care (typically for suicidal or extreme out of control states and shorter term) and therapeutic boarding (less therapy, less supervision, and longer term) is a lower level of care.

CERTS residential treatment programs are clinically rich, with specialized care and multiple types of therapy. Every treatment center offers a different type of therapy. La Europa Academy specializes in art therapy, while Kolob Canyon uses equine-assisted psychotherapy. Along with these specialized therapies, each program uses cognitive behavior therapy.

The CERTS Focus

We focus on our patients’ individual needs, struggles, interests, hopes and dreams. Every one of our programs intensively focuses on getting to the core issues that drive negative behavior. Our intimate, specialized treatment programs make sure families are involved throughout the whole process. Family therapy sessions are always included in the overall treatment process.
