In Balance Academy is a nationally recognized, Joint Commission Accredited, family owned and operated, therapeutic boarding school developed around a clinically sophisticated model that effectively blends evidence-based, research-proven traditional and non-traditional therapy and the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. In Balance serves young men, ages 13-17, who are struggling with substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders. Additionally, the program incorporates: * relapse prevention techniques * equine therapy * Motivational Interviewing (MI) * Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) * E.M.D.R * Family therapy * Positive Peer Culture (PPC) * and an array of experiential treatment modalities. Located in beautiful southern Arizona, an hour and 15 minutes from Tucson, In Balance Academy offers an atmosphere conducive to self-reflection and serenity. Our program provides young men with a unique experience that inspires self-evaluation, discovery and growth. We believe that in order for a young person to be successful in recovery it is our responsibility to instill in them that recovery can be not only rewarding, but fun as well. We incorporate an element of fun in almost everything we do at In Balance so do not be surprised to hear your son boast about going paint balling, snowboarding, rock climbing, cattle driving or traveling to amazing places nationally and internationally. Most importantly, our program offers the invaluable gift of recovery from chemical dependency and other mental health challenges.
