Why Choose Equinox
We strive to support the creation of self-sustaining, lifelong change at Equinox through our remarkable people and programming. When change is generated through a relationship-based and principle-centered focus, in which a teenager has the choice to comply, lifelong, sustainable change is achievable.
Our residential treatment program creates a culture that fosters the development of strong, positive identities among young men and strongly challenges old ways of being and thinking. As they develop and learn alongside one another, they form trusting, caring relationships. One method that helps is by challenging our boys through adventure therapy.
The heart of our clinical program is the work and therapy we do with families. We firmly believe in the importance of strong and healthy family relationships. The core of our programming is based on healing damaged relationships so that we can help restore healthy connections within the family system.
One of the strengths of our residential treatment center is our experiential approach which uses the residential environment to observe and help change come about in practical, everyday experiences. Milieu therapy provides “in-the-moment” intervention that is nearly impossible to replicate in traditional therapy sessions. Read more about our Milieu.
