Transforming Boys To Young Men
A master treatment plan with specific objectives is prepared for each boy after their individual needs are assessed and discussed with the Heritage team, the students parents and other professionals. Individual, family, and group therapy sessions, as well as family mentoring and academics focus on the goals for each boy to ensure the best possible outcomes. The boys program transforms boys into young men and prepares them to live a healthy, productive life.
Building Healthy Relationships
The success of Heritage as a treatment center for boys is built on the relationship concepts that have been pioneered and mastered by the certified Heritage staff. Our family mentors are selected, trained and certified in the Heritage relationship method for establishing consistent, affective interactions with healthy boundaries and consequences. As they build effective relationships, boys learn to trust themselves and others.
Becoming Healthy Family Members
In our therapeutic community, students live in a home-like environment with 10 to 12 boys of their age supervised 24/7 by family mentors under the direction of a Home Director and two Home Leads. These family mentors are the parent figures for the home. It is in the Heritage Homes that students learn positive habits for healthy living, respect, discipline and responsibility.
Engaging In Healthy Activities
Boys need a healthy amount of outdoor and recreational activities. In the boys program students are able to discover new interests and develop their talents during on and off campus activities including mountain biking, hiking, skiing, long boarding, camping and team sports. In addition, they participate in age-appropriate coed activities to develop positive, healthy social skills.
Preparing For Their Future
At Heritage, teens develop skills to live a more productive life. Heritage empowers boys with the role models, skills, and tools to continue their education, live a healthy lifestyle, and obtain employment. Parents and families reconnect with the son they thought they had lost. Students are prepared to launch themselves as young adults and community members ready for a productive life.
