Programs

Copper Hills is proud to offer the following gender-specific programs to youth:

All of our program services include the following:

Individualized treatment: Our team of physicians, nurses, teachers, licensed therapists and mental health associates will develop a treatment plan designed specifically for each resident at Copper Hills. Our team will work with the resident and family to lead, guide, and create an interactive and flexible environment for change. Our treatment plans and therapeutic assignments are based on each child’s abilities and needs.

Therapeutic community: Our resident community revolves around personal responsibility, leadership, group support, social skills, daily living skills, and communication training to help develop healthy interactions. Residents participate in individual, group, and family therapy conducted by licensed clinicians. Recreational programs help residents achieve a healthy balance in their daily lives. Programs include physical education and skill activities such as hiking, camping, river rafting, and ropes courses.

Recreational Therapy: Recreational therapy at Copper Hills provides unique opportunities for all students to work through their issues both mentally and physically. Read more.

Education: Our fully accredited private school allows students to continue their education while they receive the treatment they need. Classes are held Monday through Friday with teachers with special education backgrounds and professional development in areas relating to our residents. The educational program emphasizes building a student’s self esteem through academic instruction that also includes behavioral, social, and emotional aspects. Instructors work with the therapeutic community to provide a positive and successful learning environment. We offer classes in English, science, social studies, math and physical education that match each student’s abilities and needs, including those students with learning disabilities and behavioral disorders. School instruction and study time meet all requirements and credits earned at Copper Hills are transferable to other schools. At the time of discharge, an official school transcript is forwarded to the appropriate home school district.
