Re-Creation Retreat is a professional, licensed residential treatment center that provides troubled young women with an opportunity for self-discovery and self-empowerment. Through this experience, they will discover their worth, their strengths, and ultimately, how to succeed.
This residential treatment center is committed to providing individualized treatment for troubled teenage girls and bringing hope to worrying families.
Staff at Re-Creation Retreat is comprised of compassionate, experienced professionals. Their only goal is to help teenage boys change their lives through strong therapeutic relationships. This aspect of the program is truly unique, and not offered by other traditional residential treatment centers for girls.
Academics are also an area of concern for many parents of troubled teens. Re-Creation Retreat provides a high-quality academic program specifically designed to fit the needs of troubled students. It is not at all uncommon for girls going through emotional and behavioral difficulties to also experience a degree of academic struggle. These two things are not unrelated. For this reason, the therapeutic approach works alongside the academic program to build a comprehensive plan of recovery.
Re-Creation Retreat offers an outstanding and affordable inpatient therapeutic programs for girls. We present a unique blend of animal-assisted therapy combined with traditional therapy (individual and group therapy – CBT & DBT).
Girls in this therapeutic program achieve emotional growth, emotional intelligence development, and emotional maturity. 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 with cannot be beyond 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 group, 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-concept. We develop a community that is supportive and encouraging.
Real World Integration
We integrate a “community-based” real world understanding into our therapy, and use the community here as a safe and encouraging place for the girls to learn about themselves and their choices. 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 values, 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 Values – Growing in Life
Young women who are struggling need coaching and instruction regarding values and what is acceptable and what isn’t. Understanding and living by values does not come automatically, or easily to these girls. Values such as integrity, trustworthiness, compassion, service toward others, and truthfulness are critical to a healthy life. Without such strong values it is almost impossible to “get healthy.” Add in the condition they come to us, the loos of many of these values may seem impossible to overcome, but we have seen it 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 family back home in a emotionally mature and consistent manner. Principles learned at Re-Creation Retreat lead to a new level of accountability and responsibility, which leads to self-value and self-worth. This program allows girls to “retreat” from their old self and re-discover what is truly important in life. In this process, girls begin to re-create their lives, adopting values that can bring a life-long change.
