Lisa Von Colln, Director of Marketing
"New Haven is situated at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains
near the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon on 9-acres in a beautiful agricultural setting. The residence is an attractive 7,000
square foot country designed home. It is distinguished by cherry and apple orchards, pasture and stables, gardening plots, a sports
court, a rowing and fishing pond, and other amenities that will allow for an exhilarating therapeutic ambiance.
"New Haven's capacity is limited to 12 girls between the ages of 13 and 17."
Their philosophy is a commitment "to providing students with experiences that will enable them to realize the choices that have limited
their growth and personal development. The program is specifically designed to help students go beyond their boundaries and overcome
the limiting beliefs that have kept them from achieving their individual potential."
The Treatment Program includes "seven to ten therapy sessions per week";
"Emphasis on family therapy. All clinicians are trained in family and relationship therapy;" "Secondary education program;" "Recreational
therapy program. A licensed recreational therapist oversees all recreational activities" which include a ropes course, personal garden
and orchard plots, horse care and riding program, exercise and weight room, and music lessons and crafts; "Family-style living;" and
"Modified Behavior Management System."
