What Makes West Ridge Academy’s Therapeutic Program Unique?

Our Therapeutic Program takes a holistic approach, treating mental, physical and spiritual problems. At the foundation, we use natural and logical consequences to teach and tutor our students. If we can teach a student that keeping their agreements in life matters and is important, life will really begin to open up and work for them. Accountability is a must and all of our staff, home parents, live-in counselors, therapists, teachers and administrators are engaged in the process of teaching your child what works.

Our Goal and Mission at West Ridge Academy is to offer hope and healing to families. A young person spiraling out of control can be devastating to even the healthiest of families. Sometimes normal parenting skills simply aren't enough. We are here to help. Our passion is to build trusting relationships with your son or daughter that will hopefully create a lifelong change in heart. They will learn new coping skills that will propel them into a more functional and peaceful way of life. These changes are miraculous to see and the reason why we love what we do at West Ridge Academy.

Our Therapeutic Team consists of experienced licensed professionals that are here to serve you and your family's needs. Upon arriving at West Ridge, your family will be assigned a full-time therapist that will work with your son or daughter for the duration of their stay and after.

  • Therapy: Our therapeutic team provides Individual, Family and Group therapy on a weekly basis. It is the goal of our team to work past the presenting symptoms to get to the core of what is really running your child's behavior. Therapy will focus on these core issues. Once these issues are addressed, a healthier, happier individual emerges. They're more equipped to problem solve and communicate with everyone. Their combative and oppositional attitude is replaced with cooperation and insight. Problems simply become an opportunity to learn.

  • Specialty Groups: Along with the normal weekly group offered on campus, a variety of specialized groups to meet unique problems. Adoption, character development, bereavement, abuse and drug and alcohol groups are available to your child. These groups are held weekly by our licensed therapists and are impactful and highly effective in our therapeutic process.
