The Child and Adolescent Center is a true multi-modal program providing insight-oriented therapy that combines strong psycho-education with adventure-based experiences in both wilderness and urban settings. This unique blend of intensive psychiatric therapy with adventure-based experiences produces positive results, many times in less than three months versus the 12 or 18 months often needed by other programs.
Our treatment goes beyond traditional and wilderness settings by using therapeutic adventure as a catalyst for inner change and stabilization. Located on 50 acres of wooded property in southeastern Wisconsin, our outstanding on-site facilities and activities include an indoor gymnasium and art studio. Set between two lakes, teens have access to a ropes and challenge course, playing fields, hiking trails and year-round lake activities.
Our ideal location between Madison and Milwaukee offers off-site experiences in both urban and wilderness settings. Whether at Milwaukee’s lake front, a museum, going on a camping trip, caving, or touring a university campus, our residents actively use their living skills in a variety of environments.
