A Mental Health Treatment Program Carefully Designed to Assist Families in Crisis
If you are considering a residential mental health treatment program, therapeutic boarding school, or wilderness program for your teen, we invite you to consider the many unique benefits of Ironwood Maine. With the collective experience that comes with having helped hundreds of families, we continue to successfully teach positive life principles to our resident teens and improve connections within their family systems.
Founded by parents who faced similar circumstances, Ironwood Maine’s comprehensive mental health treatment program for adolescents is carefully designed to assist families in crisis. Our program can create change in the behavior of the challenged teen by encouraging self-respect, values, and effective communication skills so that teens can reconnect with their family members and enjoy success in life. Our program offers therapeutic, behavioral, and academic services that bring about positive change. Ironwood Maine offers a highly structured treatment program with intensive therapeutic and behavioral interventions, group work, physical exercise, outdoor-based experiences, and a wide range of enrichment programs including equestrian, art, culinary, horticulture, and nature therapy studies. Therapy delivered by a team of seasoned professional clinicians is the foundation of our 3-to-6-month program.
Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and licensed by the state of Maine Department of Education, Ironwood’s academic program ensures that teens maintain their educational objectives and continuity with their home schools. Most residents are able to earn additional credits because they have discovered a new satisfaction and purpose for learning. This desire for learning, combined with our personalized attention and year-round schooling, provides the support residents need to stay focused and motivated to excel. On average, students complete 7-10 high school credits and advance one full grade.
Through communication, relationship building, self-reflection, simple living, self-discipline, and engaging work, teens adopt positive behaviors necessary to lead productive lives as contributing family members and community citizens. We do understand your family’s and your child’s struggle and we can help you during this difficult time. Call us today.
Ironwood Maine is a proud member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, HHS, and the state of Maine DOE.
