Evidence-Based Therapies
Our program is a complete Interruption-Intervention-Integration  program that uses American Psychiatric & Psychological Associations evidence-based therapies and techniques to provide your child with the most effective and proven treatment interventions available today. The program is based on compassionate care using a Love and Logic© approach that encourages your child to take responsibility for their choices and the consequences (positive or negative) that result from their choices and decisions.

Blending Traditional Therapies With Innovative Modalities
Our program integrates traditional treatment modalities, martial arts, wilderness and 12 Step (modified for teenagers) so that your child will receive the benefits from several different approaches, supporting their ability to make choices that work best for them.

Built For Long-Term Success
Fire Mountain Programs wholly agrees with the National Institute of Drug Abuse’s assertion that “…research has shown unequivocally that good outcomes are contingent on adequate treatment length. Generally, for residential or outpatient treatment, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.” NIDA

Fire Mountain’s program is based on an initial 120 day treatment plan, with average stays running 150-180 days. Our program is built around a Three Phase Program  of Sobriety, Emotional Growth and Integration, and our program is designed to support your child in successfully completing each phase in order to reach the goal of graduation, transforming your child from a troubled teen to a confident teen, with a vision and a plan. Take a look at our Testimonials page to see what former resident and parents have to say about our program. We will refer you to speak with parents and teens who have graduated from the program.
