Samaya is a new residential treatment center for adolescent girls ages 14-17 with diagnoses and behaviors including ADD/ADHD, struggles in school, exhibition of self-harming behaviors such as eating disorders and substance abuse and conflicts with family and peers. The average length of stay at Samaya is 10 to 12 months. The owners of the program are Ian D. Feinauer PhD, LMFT Executive Director, Emily Miranda MSW, LCSW, Clinical Director and Dan Phelps CFO. The Program Director is Stacey Stocking LSAC, TRS

Samaya is a Sanskirt word meaning "a commitment to willingly enter fully into life through self-awareness, intention and acceptance." These concepts are explored through individual, family, group and equine assisted psychotherapy and daily yoga practice. In addition, a "holistic treatment" approach of medication management, physical fitness, an organic and whole foods diet, recreational activities, community service opportunities and wellness education are all part of the healthy journey students learn while moving through the level system or "steps" of the program.

Accredited through the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools and operating year round, academics are a crucial component at Samaya. Students participate in a full rounded curriculum that includes math, science, social studies, language arts, foreign languages, PE, fine arts, financial literacy, applied technology and life management.

Community service is a fundamental part of the program, with students working with a local food pantry, a pet adoption center and an organic nursery. Students also participate in volunteer projects such as Make a Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, hospice care and Adopt a Highway.
