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.
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
- Mood disorders
- Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
- Panic disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
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.
