Creating Greater Access to Treatment at The Forge School
In a desire to create more access for families, The Forge School is working with insurance companies to provide short-term residential treatment for teen boys, typically lasting 45-60 days.
The Forge School’s intensive clinical approach to treatment includes five hours of group therapy and one hour of individual therapy incorporating modalities such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), S.M.A.R.T. RECOVERY, Brainspotting and Heart Math.
This program focuses on utilizing brief, solutions-focused family systems therapy which includes a plan of action for families that offers continued attuned treatment. Students will receive medication management 1x per week by resident psychiatrist Dr. Simms, as well as psychological testing as part of their treatment plan. The goal of The Forge School is to create experiences of Maverick joy for each student and to help them begin to develop a healthy sense of self.
As the need for mental health access increases, The Forge School, under the umbrella of Embark Behavioral Health, aims to increase opportunities for those in need to be able to seek help.
