Wellspring is a small non-profit residential program nestled in the heart of Bethlehem, Connecticut, and we have kept true to our mission since 1977. As pioneers of the relational and restorative model, we believe that to make significant change that is long term, we offer shared experiences of daily life in a home-like atmosphere. This clinical rapport has led us to many lifetime connections with residents, students and families who have been in our care.

ADOLESCENT GIRLS RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM & ON CAMPUS COLLEGE PREP SCHOOL
The adolescent campus is set on 15 acres with two cozy residential homes for a total of 27 residents. This campus provides long term mental health residential treatment for adolescent girls who typically suffer from issues that stem from, but are not limited to, mood disorders, trauma and depression, PTSD, attachment disorders, anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder. Often they come here after spending time at a short-term residential program, wilderness program, hospital stay or intensive outpatient program. Our clinical program integrates treatment in our on campus college preparatory school that is taught by content-certified teachers and supported by a team of school clinicians and social workers. Over the past 10 years, we have a 100% graduation rate.
The cost of Wellspring’s residential and education program may be covered by your home school district through the IEP/ PPT/ CSE process. Wellspring has worked collaboratively with over 100 school districts in multiple states.

ADULT WOMEN RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM
Wellspring’s adult residential program, with a maximum of 10 residents, holds a relationally based family environment for residential treatment with step-downs into day treatment and outpatient programs, and supports women in returning to college and work.
The multi-disciplinary treatment team includes a Psychiatrist, Nurse, Psychotherapists, Social Workers and Milieu Counselors. Clinical therapies are integrated with organic organic gardening, culinary, and land and animal programs. All treatments are included in the daily rate.
