Located on our 350-acre campus in southeastern New Hampshire, The Ridge, a specialized mental health residential program for teens who require therapeutic assessment and support. Our program prioritizes therapy, structure, high levels of supervision, and fewer distractions to empower our residents to develop the critical strengths they need. The Ridge provides a supportive and caring environment for teens who need more intense care than they can receive at home, at school, or in a traditional residential setting.
