We believe that a healthy family system is crucial to long-term success. Our full-time Parent Coach works with our students' families to hone skills such as communication and de-escalation techniques. We also address educational topics such as family dynamics and parenting styles.

  • Complete assessments

  • Individualized treatment plans

  • Relapse prevention

  • Social skills building

  • Special needs groups (anger and recovery management)

  • Quarterly Weekend Family Retreats on the St. Joseph's Saranac Lake Campus

  • Group counseling in five phases of treatment

  • Individualized counseling

Medical & Clinical Services

Our medical department, overseen by a Registered Nurse, provides assessment and reassessment of our students' physical, nutritional, and oral health care needs through direct or referred health care services.

Psychiatric services are provided by a consulting psychiatrist, who will assess each student within a week of admission. This initial assessment is followed by ongoing treatment, including medication management and evaluation, throughout each student's stay. 


The student and family are actively engaged in any consideration of the use, change, or discontinuation of medication. The psychiatrist also participates in weekly consultations with the student's treatment team.
