Spring Creek Offers Full Range Of Experiences
Steve Cawdrey, Founder/Co-Director of Spring Creek Community which was founded in 1979 near Thompson Falls, Montana as an alternative
school for young people, reports a full range of experiences for young people in trouble (See Steve's article Believing is Seeing
in this issue). Family Intensives are 7 day experiences scheduled several times a year for anyone interested in exploring addictions,
adolescent behavior, family patterns and parenting from a new paradigm. For longer term for the students, the basic experience is
called Groundings, a 30-60 day intervention. Connecting is the next phase, a 3-6 month experience designed for co-educational community
living, working a recovery program, taking direction and accepting responsibility. For the student who wants to be there, Learning
helps them work a recovery program for personal sobriety, seek a spiritual path, prepare for college, a job and learns to honor his/her
own process. 406-827-4344.
Changes At Secret Harbor School
Rich Hanson has been named Program Manager for Secret Harbor School on Cypress Island outside Anacortes, Washington, and Norm Englund,
MSW, has been appointed Clinical Supervisor. Previously, Brian Carroll had taken over as Executive Director. The program declined
to renew their contract with Washington's Division of Children & Family Services, primarily because of the state's no decline
clause. They are now actively seeking out-of-state placements from school districts and the private sector. They also have developed
a cooperative relationship with Skagit Recovery Center to add a recovery component, have added an 8-unit computer and integrating
that into content area classes. For more information, call 360-293-5151.
