Oxbow Academy is designed for boys 12-18 who are engaging in sexually inappropriate behaviors. Along with sexual issues, many of our students also struggle with ADHD, anxiety, depression, adoption issues, social incompetence, self-injurious behavior and other psychological issues. Oxbow’s treatment approach is holistic and strength-based, not shame-based or confrontational. Clinicians work to determine what the student’s issues were before sexual behaviors began. Using the Good Lives model, they help each student discover the competencies they already possess, building on those strengths to overcome the issues they face. Our program philosophy is built around what we call our Heartbeat or mission statement. Some of our program highlights are: We started working with adolescents dealing with sexual issues over 15 years ago which let up to our program beginnings in 2006. Currently, we are using 6 research tools to gauge and drive progress as the leaders in our specific therapy offering. We operate on over 11 acres between two specific campuses, one of which is an Autism / Spectrum specific campus. We have a top notch equine program with over 20 horses and an indoor riding arena for year-round experiential therapy. Our students as a part of the Discovery Academy accredited academic program score above national average on the SAT. We have among the highest professional to student face time in the industry wit by holding our academic portion of our program in the evening and our experiential program in the day hours.
