The Ironwood Difference
Ironwood operates as a private school to give students a proper sense of identity, safety and purpose, but Ironwood is also licensed as a Residential Treatment Center. This additional licensure makes us truly unique and means that Ironwood is held to the highest standards of care and professionalism. Parents and professionals can rest assured their children and clients are receiving the most comprehensive and effective services available today.
Intensive therapy is the foundation of Ironwood’s impressive success in working with troubled and underachieving teens. At Ironwood, therapy is founded on the basis of relationships – relationships of trust, truthfulness, confidence and humor. When students are willing to engage in a trusted therapist – then learning, change and growth can begin.
Therapy takes many forms and is conducted in various locations. A therapy session can take place walking along the path of trees through campus or sitting on a bench next to the pond. It can take place around a campfire or in the therapist’s office or with a variety of animals, wherever the greatest result can be achieved.
Ironwood’s licensed therapists have a broad range of experience and expertise. From substance abuse counseling to dialectical behavioral therapy to our renowned animal-assisted therapy and most everything in between, Ironwood’s skilled therapists are both current and competent.
