Programs at TImber Ridge School

Substance Abuse Services

Adolescents with serious emotional and behavioral disturbances often also battle substance abuse. We offer a treatment program that includes a thorough assessment, along with individual, group, and family therapy.

In addition to being treated with cognitive behavioral interventions and a family systems approach, Living in the Balance is used as our primary evidenced-based modality. Students are also exposed to the 12-Step Self-Help Model and educated about how participation in group meetings within their home communities can be helpful. The emphasis is on improved family functioning and preventing relapse.

Timber Ridge School does an outstanding job with their wide range of services. When I place a student there, I never have concerns about the quality of counseling or educational services.
