Program Description:

Peninsula Village is an intensive outdoor oriented residential treatment center near Knoxville, Tennessee with a record of success in helping adolescents and their families achieve lasting change. The Village is a nationally recognized program that specializes in the treatment of adolescents who have not responded to more conventional treatment approaches and require extended and concentrated treatment.



Peninsula Village, established in 1986, is a long-term residential treatment center specializing in treating adolescents who have not been successful in other treatment settings. Our strength and success lie in our intense clinical approach combined with a chemical dependency component. Our clients, ages 13 to 18, typically are admitted with some combination of the following:

Mood disorders
Substance abuse issues
Behavioral disorders
Character pathologies
Difficulties in school environments
Sexual abuse issues
Cutting

Located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Peninsula Village is minutes from Knoxville, Tennessee. Situated on a campus of woodlands along the Tennessee River, there are separate campuses for male and female adolescents. Each campus has its own SACS-accredited, state-certified private school.

The goal of the Peninsula Village program is to provide adolescents with a respect for authority, a sense of self as part of a group or larger community, self-restraint, tolerance for tension and frustration, independence in relation to others and the value of physical work.

Peninsula Village is a not-for-profit program and part of a comprehensive behavioral health system that has served clients for more than 30 years. The Village is accredited by the Joint Commission and is licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities. In addition, the Village is a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs(NATSAP).

About Our Campus:

-Low student-to-staff ratio
-On-site, licensed and accredited college preparatory high school with licensed teachers including those with special education certification
-Expertly trained staff of more than 100 including a full-time child and adolescent psychiatrist, two psychologists, eleven registered nurses and ten master level therapists
-Assessment Process

Peninsula Village carefully screens patients and reviews records from previous treatments. A team of psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, licensed clinical social workers, master's level therapists, recreation therapists, certified addiction specialists, teachers and other professionals evaluate each patient upon admission. These evaluations, combined with family interviews and observations of the patient by the staff, help create a comprehensive picture of the patient's condition.

Family Involvement in Treatment

Treatment success at Peninsula Village is greatly enhanced by close family involvement. Conducted by clinical social workers and other master's level counselors, family therapy typically occurs on a weekly basis. With many of our patients coming from geographically distant parts of the country, telephone therapy sessions are available when face-to-face family therapy is not possible for every session. Specialty family support groups and specialty groups in relapse prevention and eating disorders are also offered for families at no additional expense.
