Summit Achievement's hybrid treatment model works and is needed for troubled teens now more than ever. Research shows us teens and young adults are increasingly incapacitated by anxiety, depression and learning issues. For many, it results in school refusal/phobia. Our model effectively deals with these issues as it combines the best features of a wilderness therapy program and special-needs boarding school, by integrating a residential milieu and traditional academic instruction with adventure therapy.
Summit Achievement believes the academic setting is as challenging, or even more challenging than the wilderness, and it is an integral part of both assessment and treatment of our clients. Although it would be more cost effective and easier not to have an academic component, it would lead to less impressive outcomes for our clients. Therefore, Summit Achievement offers school year-round, because it is part of the treatment and it helps prepare students to reintegrate back into a traditional educational environments.
Summit has a hybrid trestment model because it works.
