Stillwater Academy is a one-of-a-kind clinical treatment program and accredited school that helps teens and families who have experienced profound family disruptions find healing and re-connection.

Through our unique approach, we help students (age 13-17) LEARN new ways of addressing their challenges; LIVE the skills they are developing in a family setting that provides warmth, support, and consistency; and LEAD others as they prepare for transition. Founded in 1988, Stillwater Academy has over 30 years of experience in helping students struggling with challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction (substance, electronic and gaming), family conflict, neurodiversity, ASD Level 1 and more.

We are experts at maximizing insurance benefits to offset the high cost of treatment for parents. Our clinical approach includes weekly individual, family, group and equine assisted therapy; inspired, classroom-based education by State licensed teachers; and engaging recreation activities with a purpose; all directed at strengthening family relationships and preparing our students to achieve long term success post treatment.

Our highly trained housing staff provide students who have experienced traumatic life events (adoption, attachment issues, traumatic divorce, abuse, maladaptive family systems) a place to practice the new skills they are learning in family setting that provides warmth, support, love, consistency and , An evidence-based, family systems approach guides the work we do.
