Red Oak Recovery® is proud to announce the opening of a clinically intensive, trauma-informed, gender-separate adolescent treatment program in the Winter of 2018. The program will serve adolescent males, ages 14-17. Located on an expansive 94-acre working horse farm in Ellenboro, North Carolina, equidistant between Asheville and Charlotte, it is an ideal location to utilize the surrounding landscape for experiential and adventure programming.
The program will be 45-60 day residential, multi-disciplinary program focusing on trauma, mental health, and substance use issues. In addition to extensive clinical care with master’s level clinicians who are dually licensed in mental health and substance abuse, it will also include an academic component, nutritional education, physical fitness, experiential therapies, psychoeducation, grief and loss work, and care around adoption and divorce issues.
The intensive, emotionally focused Family Program will be centered around communication skills, improving family relationships, and supporting recovery. Red Oak Recovery® interlocks their clinical approach with full holistic care for the body, mind and spirit. Focusing on the whole person, as well as integrating their family and loved ones in their care, has proven to provide the best chance at sustainable recovery for a young person.
“We have had multiple requests over the years to open an adolescent program utilizing our developmentally specific, clinically dynamic, and trauma informed treatment model,” explains Jack Kline, MS, LPCS, LCAS, CCS, CTT-2, MAC, President and Founder. “We are enthusiastic about this as we have seen how effective bio-psycho-social-spiritual care is, particularly when combined with strong family work.”
