Elk Mountain Academy
Elk Mountain Academy is a therapeutic boarding school designed to help young women solve difficult emotional issues such as: attachment disorders, attention deficit, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-destructive or antisocial behavior, and issues involved with their adoption.
Elk Mountain provides innovative therapy, including individual, group and family counseling. We also provide specialized help for students dealing with trauma and/or abandonment issues. The goal is to uncover the psychological factors contributing to the student’s unhealthy behavioral choices. The student will then learn therapeutic tools that will assist her for the rest of her life to be a healthy woman.
Students at Elk Mountain Academy live together in our beautiful lodge and meet regularly with their therapists, who help them confront fears and gain confidence in a safe, nurturing and structured environment.
Art therapy gives girls another way to release their emotions. Animal and equine therapy is a part of our program featuring dogs and miniature horses. Finally, through around the clock interactions with our trained staff, the girls receive constant feedback and assistance in their thinking and actions.
“I had been living a life full of lying, shallow relationships, and addictions. At first it was hard to accepting that I needed to change in order to be happy, but once I accepted that I needed to leave the things that no longer served me, I became happier, and I was ready to work. Clearview is where I grew up, not physically, but mentally. I struggle with a drug addiction, but I have learned how to love every quirk I have…Don’t rush the process. Accept that healing takes time.” – Graduate 2014
