Telos Residential Treatment, LLC, is a small, residential therapeutic program designed for young men, ages 13-17 years old and grades 7-12, who struggle with depression, anxiety, low self esteem, drug abuse or may have learning disorders, social problems or have experienced self harm or adoption and attachment disorders.

Heading the team at Telos is Craig LaMont, CEO, founder and the President-elect of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP); Tony Mosier is the Program Director and Greg Rush is the Director of Clinical Services. Telos is accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools and a member of NATSAP.

Students attending Telos participate in individual therapy, family therapy and daily 60 minute groups that explore areas that may include substance abuse, emotional management and specialized group issues. Recreational therapy includes daily peer group runs and fun recreational sports that consist of mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding and camping. A unique aspect at Telos is triathlon training, which happens two hours a day, six days a week, with students divided into three groups at respective levels, with the idea that triathlon training is a natural extension of the skills students learned at their respective wilderness programs and helps students challenge their inflexible ideas of what they think is possible for themselves.

Class sizes at Telos are small with 6-8 students per class. Parents can monitor their child's academic progress using Telos' Powerschool online tracking system. Academic tutors are available as is a 12 week SAT/ACT preparation class.
