A Premier Residential Treatment Center

Logan River Academy is a premier adolescent residential treatment center offering a family of specialized services of the highest quality and ethical standards. We are dedicated to improving the lives of our students and families. We offer safe, caring, structured, therapeutic environments, promoting positive change. Our five distinct and specialized programs are:

    • ESSENCE: Two dorms serving male students with autism spectrum disorders;
    • Foundations: Two dorms serving boys who struggle with depression, anxiety, boundary issues, learning problems, family issues, and substance use;
    • Maple Rise: A separately located country home serving female students;
    • Tavasi: A transitional living dorm for students that have successfully completed a previous treatment program;
    • Y.A.: A dorm for 18 year old students

Each of these small and intimate programs offer specialized programming to students with specific diagnoses and needs. All students participate in a fully accredited school and an exceptional adventure learning program, keeping students active and learning new skills.
At Logan River Academy we have an overarching philosophy that we call the Principle-Based Model. This model is based on five principles for effective living: honesty, respect, accountability, fairness, and caring. These guiding principles guide how we train our team, how we work with our students, and what we expect our students to learn while here. We believe that as a student learns, incorporates, and internalizes these principles, they will find great success. Within this model, we utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as guiding therapeutic modalities. This model provides an atmosphere where our students learn and utilize CBT and DBT skills, while incorporating the 5 principles for effective living in their lives.
Our goal is to help each student develop the necessary skills to succeed at home, in school, and in the community. This is accomplished through the concerted efforts the family, the treatment team and an individualized treatment plan. Each student receives individual, group, and family therapies by licensed therapists. The treatment plan is implemented in a safe, structured, and supportive living environment. Substance abuse intervention is available for students with that need. All faculty members are certified, and the curriculum includes 8th through 12th grade classes and small class sizes.

Our Family of Programs

ESSENCE is Logan River Academy’s program for students on the autism spectrum. ESSENCE is composed of two specialized dorms with programming that is geared specifically for the unique needs of these students. ESSENCE is an acronym for the key areas we focus on: Executive Functioning, Sensory, Self Care, Emotional Regulation, Communication, and Empathy.

Foundations is Logan River Academy’s program for boys dealing with issues like depression, anxiety, ADHD, opposional behavior, unhealthy coping skills (substance abuse, video game addiction, pornography addiction, etc.), adoption and attachment issues, and academic and family struggles. With a strong clinical emphasis, the program is built on a principle based model emphasizing: Honesty, Respect, Accountability, Fairness, and Caring.

Maple Rise Academy is a girls only program with an approach based on a relationship model with a heavy emphasis on learning DBT skills. Students are empowered to help determine their treatment and day-to-day living experience. This small and specialized program geared to the unique needs of girls provides a sophisticated clinical approach for girls struggling at home, in school, or in the community. In addition to individual, group, and family therapy, our girls participate in equine therapy, adventure learning, and activities relating to healthy living, arts and culture, and community service.

Tavasi is Logan River Academy’s transitional living program for students to learn to succeed in a less structured, more homelike environment. Tavasi students focus on independent living skills, exercising more autonomy, mentoring other students, becoming leaders, and providing community service.
