Nashotah Program

Who we treat: 
High school females up to age 18

If you are facing intense emotions that you find hard to control and you seek a psychiatric program that will work with you to develop the skills you need to improve quality of life, your relationships, your self-esteem and resilience, the Nashotah program at Rogers Memorial Hospital is here to help. This program provides strong, residential programming for high school girls ready to take this next step.

The Nashotah program is an intensive dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) immersion program that uses principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to support healthy change. You will learn DBT skills and the entire team reinforces the use of these skills with support, behavioral management and motivational strategies. With 30 hours per week of skills training, group therapy, DBT-based experiential therapy and more, each young woman will receive an individualized treatment plan to assist in treating:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression and anxiety disorders
  • Difficulties in emotional regulation
  • Disordered eating

The Nashotah program takes its name from Native American origins; Nashotah is a female name meaning “twin.” The program is highly informed by the work of Dr. Marsha Linehan who developed DBT. Similar to the duality of twins, DBT emphasizes the ability to accept two thoughts seemingly in conflict, at the same time, with the same value. Skills of mindfulness and acceptance are woven throughout treatment, leading to a middle path that lets you accept you are doing the best you can, while acknowledging you still can try harder and change.

Guided by Rogers’ full-time, board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists, the Nashotah program seeks to build a highly validating environment where adolescent girls can become open to exploring change and using DBT skills to better manage intense emotions and mood changes, while developing a healthier self-esteem and improving their relationships with family and peers.
