Sunrise Residential Treatment Center Celebrates 20 Year Anniversary
Sunrise Residential Treatment Center is thrilled to celebrate its 20 year anniversary. While there are several events throughout the year to celebrate this giant occasion including a Going Virtual with DBT webinar series, the program is most excited to announce the creation of 5 murals, designed by current students, to be painted at each of the campuses. Each community, or the assigned group that each girl lives with, spent weeks planning their “Life Worth Living”. The hope is to help the girls recognize and celebrate the work, past and present, that has transformed them to where they’mare today.
Brad Simpson, DSW, LCSW, and Executive Director of Sunrise RTC, has been with Sunrise for 14 of those 20 years. Here is what he says about the journey that he has experienced while being at Sunrise: “I can’t imagine working with a better population. I’ve worked in a few different capacities in the mental health fields and adolescent girls are my favorite to work with. As Sunrise has grown and developed over the years we are providing these girls and their families with the skills they need to build a life worth living. And, our feedback informed treatment ensures that we are providing the quality of care our families deserve.”
Sunrise opened its doors in January of 2000 to serve adolescent girls and their families. Although treatment has improved throughout the years, one goal has not changed: Sunrise works to shift the entire family unit effecting future generations in a positive, consistent manner. And so Sunrise focuses on both the individual and family relationships that need to be mended throughout treatment and not the behaviors we see from our adolescent clients.
