The founders of New Haven, a residential treatment center was founded in 1995. The founders created the New Haven Values Program over 20 years ago. The Values Program has guided hundreds of girls and their families through their healing process. New Haven is a residential treatment center and college preparatory school for adolescent girls ages 13-18. New Haven specializes in treating adolescent girls struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, family distress and academic under-achievement. Students and their parents have come to family therapy each week, ready to discuss the assignments the family has worked on from the Values Program.
Over the last year, many dedicated employees have devoted countless hours to improving this piece of the treatment program. What was the Values Program is now the Family Healing Program, with additional emphasis on whole family work and healing. New Haven is excited about these additions and enhancements. As families engage in the Family Healing Program, they will find a framework to help them work through the many challenges that brought them to New Haven. Lifelong change is found when the whole family changes.
In the Family Healing Program, academics also has an increased presence. New Haven students are typically college-bound following high school. Academic success plays a critical role in helping students continue their college prep academics at the same time they are healing emotionally. As students move through the phases of healing at New Haven, they are also working hard in school. Each student’s academic advisor plays a role in helping guide them through the academic portions of the Family Healing Program. Parents are included in the academic process through quarterly parent teacher conferences.
An important part of the Family Healing Program continues to be the family experiential work that each family is asked to do. A former student contacted New Haven recently and shared that she and her family are still having a bi-weekly walk and talk in nature, 10 years after she graduated from New Haven. Families are able to choose experiences, like the walk, in the Family Healing program that they know they need in order to grow closer. New Haven RTC will celebrate the 25th anniversary in 2020, the community is excited to celebrate the evolution of the treatment program and the Family Healing Program
