Elk Mountain Academy (Idaho)
Elk Mountain Academy is a therapeutic boarding school designed to help young women solve difficult emotional issues such as: attachment disorders, attention deficit, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-destructive or antisocial behavior, and issues involved with their adoption.
Elk Mountain provides innovative therapy, including individual, group and family counseling. We also provide specialized help for students dealing with trauma and/or abandonment issues. The goal is to uncover the psychological factors contributing to the student’s unhealthy behavioral choices. The student will then learn therapeutic tools that will assist her for the rest of her life to be a healthy woman.
Students at Elk Mountain Academy live together in our beautiful lodge and meet regularly with their therapists, who help them confront fears and gain confidence in a safe, nurturing and structured environment.
Art therapy gives girls another way to release their emotions. Animal and equine therapy is a part of our program featuring dogs and miniature horses. Finally, through around the clock interactions with our trained staff, the girls receive constant feedback and assistance in their thinking and actions.
“I never thought that I could have accomplished all of this in one very short year. I have over come a lot during my stay her at Clearview and I have shown so much growth from the beginning till now… I am now moving on in my program called life, and I am going to do the best that I can do with all the tools that I have learned here. Without Clearview I can honestly say that I have no idea where I would be right now or even if I would be alive. Through my eyes Clearview has saved my life; I am so grateful for every single on the girls here and also all the amazing staff. My life has changed dramatically in a positive way and I am so thankful for this once in a lifetime experience. I will never forget this experience; I will always remember the memories created in this house… I am excited to see what the future holds for us all: we can do amazing things.”
