What if there was a place where your son could be nurtured back to wholeness while being challenged toward responsible adulthood? A serene paradise where he could get away from the distractions of daily life and learn to play and laugh again in the company of true friends. A place with US licensed therapists and a robust treatment program to address his emotional and behavioral struggles.

Our team of experienced, licensed clinicians (U.S. licensure) utilizes a solutions-oriented, strengths-based approach to treatment.  Our clinical work is based on the most current developmental research and is practical, supportive and individualized.   With the help of our physical and cultural surroundings, our clinical team has created a treatment milieu in which every aspect of a student’s life is designed—subtly or explicitly—to promote reflection, connection, and personal growth. 

Coral Reef Academy  In addition to a milieu approach to treatment, we provide students with counseling sessions and psycho-educational groups, specifically:

  • Individual Therapy – 1 hour/week
  • Family Therapy (using videophone) – 1 hour/week
  • General Therapy Group – 2 x 1.5 hours/week
  • Psycho-educational group—1.5 hours/week
  • Addiction Group – 2 x 1.5 hours/week
  • Out of Office, Activity-Based Therapist Interaction – Extensive
