Alpine Academy is an RTC that serves adolescent girls between ages 12 and 18. Alpine Academy is situated on 35 acres in a rural community just 30 minutes outside of Salt Lake City. Alpine believes in a synergistic approach to the healing process by integrating the efforts of the Clinical, Academic, and Residential teams in order to help each student develop the necessary skills to stop merely surviving life and to start truly living it. RESIDENTIAL- The backbone of this approach is the Teaching-Family Model which is recognized by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. Trained and certified married couples live in and run our homes. ACADEMIC- Alpine is an accredited school through AdvancEd and is a certified non-public school for several states. Our goal is a traditional school setting with an innovative approach to meet the special academic needs of our students. NCLB highly-qualified teachers are in the front of every classroom performing direct instruction. A guidance counselor works to ensure each student is on track for graduation. CLINICAL- Master’s level clinicians lead individual, family, and group therapy sessions weekly. Our clinicians are trained in a variety of modalities: -DBT -ACT -Mindfulness -EMDR -EAGALA -Sand-Tray -Music and Art Therapy (Contract) Our goal is to give them the tools they need to individualize treatment and provide a hands-on approach for each client. Alpine implements a family-systems approach and aftercare is provided for all families.
