For Emotional Growth And Recovery
Cottonwood, Arizona
Jay Wick
Director and Founder

The Wick Home for Emotional Growth and Recovery was founded in 2007, and offers both 60-day and 90-day therapeutic programs for young men and women ages 12-17. Appropriate candidates may struggle with alcohol and substance abuse, depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, oppositional defiance and/or ADD/ADHD.

Jay Wick, Founder of The Wick Home, obtained his BA in political science and spent 22 years working with special needs youth. Shawn Bowen holds a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and is licensed in Arizona. Todd Rosenblatt, Program Director, has a BA in both Philosophy and English, a Secondary Education Teaching Certificate in English and a Master's in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. The Wick Home is state licensed through the Arizona Department of Health Services.

Each student enrolled receives an individual treatment plan, which includes individual and family counseling, peer group therapy, life skills and social skills training, in addition to daily 12-Step meetings, art therapy and self-esteem workshops. Parents participate in a two-day workshop discussing boundary setting, effective communication and relapse prevention planning. Students participate in daily chores and are responsible for keeping their personal dorm space clean.

Located near Sedona, AZ, students participate in several outdoor activities including hiking, jeep tours of the surrounding mountains, fishing at the Verdi River and Dead Horse State Park, and playing basketball and volleyball.
