Why Choose Residential Treatment at Acadia Montana?

Residential treatment is the best option when young people need more intensive and structured therapy than can be provided by outpatient treatment alone. Residential treatment is also a good alternative to inpatient hospitalization if the child or adolescent does not require acute medical or psychiatric stabilization.

 

Acadia Montana specializes in the behavioral health and well-being of young people. We take an inclusive and multi-dimensional approach to the wide variety of emotional and psychiatric disorders our patients are suffering from. Our residential treatment environment provides a “lab for living” that simulates the real life experiences young people encounter in school, creating relationships, developing positive recreational activities, and building trust.

At Acadia Montana patients receive intensive treatment services and are allowed to test the new and different coping and emotional management techniques they are learning in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We use positive reinforcement to create positive change. Our goal is to return our patients to their home and school communities equipped with the skills and abilities they need to lead healthy and more fulfilling lives.

In addition to individual, group, and family therapies; Acadia Montana offers Specialty Programs designed to meet the unique needs of our patient population. Specialty Programs can include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for personality disorders, Sons and Daughters of Tradition for Native American residents, Chemical Dependency for substance abuse and dependence, and Grief and Loss for patients suffering from Post Traumatic Stress or Abuse disorders.
