Our 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 Equinox 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.
Equinox is exclusively designed for young men ages 14 – 18. Our students build accountability, respect, and a solution-oriented approach to solving their challenges with the help our therapeutic approach.
This Journey is about people, not programs. From the passionate people we employ to the families who entrust us with their children to the incredible young men who rededicate themselves to this new journey…the challenges are there, but the results are worth the effort.
