New Haven’s school and therapeutic haven facilitates positive change and healing in families struggling with troubled adolescent girls. New Haven offers girls with emotional or behavioral problems a feeling of retreat, a safe place where they can learn empowerment skills and discover their maximum social, emotional, and academic potential. We believe that long-lasting change occurs when six areas are addressed: We emphasize family therapy, and we provide girls with the experiences and the structure to learn how to give and receive love and respect. They increase their self-esteem, and take responsibility for choices and consequences, then realign their lives with their individual values systems and spiritual orientation.
New Haven is for girls ages 12-18 who may experience problems including but not limited to the following: depression, drug abuse, manipulation, low motivation, hopelessness, low self-esteem, entitlement, and relationship difficulties. Also, we commonly treat mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, ADD, Learning Disabilities, oppositional-defiance, personality disorders, trauma-related issues, attachment disorders, and depression. We do not treat Conduct Disorders, pregnant girls, or severe psychosis.
New Haven fulfills its mission through the following: An accredited High School and Jr. High School; close ties to local universities; exceptional client service; reliable and frequent communication with parents, programs, and Educational Consultants; medication management supervised by psychiatric staff; rigorous psychological and educational testing; thorough transitional and aftercare services; Masters- or Doctorate-level therapy (family and individual weekly); Equine-assisted therapy and experiential therapies; and a 1-4 direct contact, residential staff-to-student ratio.
