At Equinox, we closely screen each applicant to ensure that the boys we accept into our residential treatment center are appropriate for the level of care we provide. We want to ensure that we are a good fit for your son and that he is a good fit for Equinox. This is of utmost importance to us, as research shows that the most important factor in positive clinical outcomes is the therapeutic relationship.
We strive to respect your child’s needs and those of your family, as we seek understand every family’s specific situation. We do this through our selective admissions process.
Step 1: Contact us to learn more about the program.
We are available seven days a week at (877) 279-8925. We are confident you will find our comprehensive therapeutic approach, delivered with an intentional focus on relationship, to offer the right blend of clinical sophistication and loving care. We highly encourage you to ask questions and to come out and visit us in person.
Step 2: Apply for admittance into Equinox.
Upon determining that you would like to see your son attend our residential treatment program, we ask that you complete our admissions application which will provide us with clinical information, treatment and academic histories, as well as the primary presenting problem for which you are seeking treatment. Our qualified admissions, clinical, and academic teams will review this application to ensure that we are confident in our ability to help your son and family.
Step 3: Acceptance into Equinox.
Following successful review of your application and confirming bed availability, your child will be accepted into our program and can begin the process of preparing for arrival. We will provide you with a list of items to bring and any additional paperwork that needs to be submitted.
Step 4: Set date for arrival.
Typically, we find it best that once accepted, admission take place as soon as possible. When there is too much time between acceptance and admittance, it can often lead to high anxiety and undue stress.
Step 5: Day One in a Journey to a healthier, more productive path.
On the day of admission, we set aside about an hour for families to come in, meet their therapist, finalze documentation, drop off belongings, and prepare for the journey ahead. We hear from families that making the decision is often the hardest part, but once that decision is made a sense of calm and confidence often ensues. We have helped many teens and families over the years. We would love the opportunity to help your family, too.
