Treatment Programs Delta Utah

White River Academy provides residential treatment and academic instruction for troubled adolescent boys who need a holistic, therapeutic retreat away from home, providing mental health, addiction and dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring conditions.

We are the embodiment of the positive peer culture and a refreshing safe haven of clinicians, counselors and support staff all dedicated helping young men to ensure they are set up for success with practical tools for lasting recovery throughout their adult life.

Mental Health

White River Academy’s mental health program diagnoses and treats mental disorders including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia

Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment at admission. One of the biggest challenges of adolescent mental health treatment is correctly parsing normal adolescent mood swings from mental disorder.

That’s why our familial clinical staff is expertly trained in pin-pointing diagnostic criteria for mental health issues.

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disease that manipulates a person’s sense of reward, motivation, memory and a number of related neurological functions.

Our addiction program provides a recovery approach for abuse of substances as well as process addictions. Addictions treated include:

  • Alcohol

White River Academy knows addiction is a brain disease and is best dealt with before the students grow out of their formative years, for lasting recovery.

Our treatment program uncovers the underlying trauma or hereditary traits that often underlay addiction. This method of treatment repaves the teen boys’ destructive path to ensure a formidable road to recovery.

Dual Diagnosis

Treating the mental disorder as well as the addiction is referred to as dual diagnosis. For patients with co-occurring addiction and mental disorders, White River Academy provides dual diagnosis treatment.

There are a good number of teens with developing mental disorder who have no idea what they are experiencing isn’t normal puberty. Similarly, adolescent boys who’ve experienced trauma may feel shamed into silence and upended in confusion and anger.

Both could be lost in detrimental self-medication or ill coping techniques. The deep-seeded mental disturbances can kindle the flames of relapsed if not addressed.

To do this, we utilize:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Rational emotive therapy
  • Alternative therapy
  • Music therapy

White River Academy staff thoroughly pre-assesses students prior to admission. Our flexible treatment methods include various forms of expression and therapy so the young men can add voice to the shadows of their hidden hurts and mindfully approach the healing process, from the inside, out.
