Program Description:

Ironwood, a Residential Treatment Center for teens located in the embracing Maine countryside, welcomes your troubled child into a safe and therapeutic learning environment. Licensed mental health professionals await the opportunity to help re-engage your teen and reunite your family.

Unlike other facilities, intensive therapeutic intervention sessions are the mainstay of Ironwood’s 6- to 9-month course correction program in which your teen progresses through productive behavioral changes. As a state-approved school, Ironwood’s academic studies program ensures your teen maintains his or her educational objectives.

Ironwood offers a highly structured treatment program with intensive daily counseling, monitored physical work, adventure-based experiences, and a wide range of special interest programs including equestrian, canine, art, culinary, horticulture, and nature therapy studies.

Founded by parents who have faced similar circumstances, Ironwood’s treatment program offers therapeutic, clinical, and educational services to bring about positive course correction. Through counseling, self-reflection, simple living, discipline, and engaging work, your teen will adopt proactive behaviors necessary to lead a productive life as a contributing family member and community citizen.

Ironwood’s comprehensive treatment program is carefully designed to assist families in crisis and turn around the behavior of the troubled teen by developing self-respect, values, and effective communication skills so that they can reconnect with their family members.

Ironwood's Mission Statement

Ironwood is a residential treatment center committed to helping families in crisis with troubled teens. We trust the teens and families we treat to share our commitment to generating successful, rewarding outcomes. Our aim is to assess and treat the causes of unruly behavior, while providing self-esteem building activities and life-enriching experiences along with academic studies. We strive to reunite youth and their families through clinical therapy, discipline, hard work, and shared experiences in a safe, secure, and therapeutic learning environment.

Programs

Ironwood, an approved non-traditional limited purpose private school, utilizes a fully-accredited distance learning curriculum which enables students to progress academically during their stay.

We provide a challenging, self-paced, flexible learning opportunity that can be customized to the individual student’s academic needs. At Ironwood, a living, learning laboratory is ever present within the 500 acre setting and through the multi-faceted experiential educational programs and core academic offerings. The curriculum is designed to effectively address a variety of learning styles, allowing students to successfully engage with their studies and relax into learning.

Ironwood offers a variety of enrichment programs designed to introduce the student to a new skill or spark a new interest or passion. Programs include horticulture and environmental science, culinary, equestrian, canine and art studies. Our goal is not simply to provide factual information, but to inspire young people to learn and thrive.

Ironwood has embraced this attitude and teamed with Oak Meadow School, an outstanding academic program and curriculum, to insure that your child is provided the opportunity for academic growth and progress while at Ironwood.
