Welcome to Spruce Mountain Inn

A Nationally Renowned Residential Treatment & Transitional Living Program for Young Adults


Located in the heart of Central Vermont, Spruce Mountain Inn has been providing compassionate, client-driven residential treatment and counseling since 1982 for young adults who are experiencing difficulty managing life.

Our comprehensive and experiential approach integrates intensive mental health treatment with a Career & Education Development Program and independent living skill development to support residents toward renewed health, greater confidence, and a meaningful future.

Spruce Mountain Inn is a renowned residential treatment center with a dedicated team of clinical and support staff. Our residence is intentionally small, with a maximum of 22 residents living and receiving treatment here at any given time.

For nearly 40 years, Spruce Mountain Inn has been helping young people overcome anxiety, depression, substance abuse, OCD, PTSD, and more. We are leaders in the field of transitional living programs, working together with more than 80 local job placement partners. We are also longstanding members of the American Residential Treatment Association, the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, the Young Adult Transition Association, and the Northern New England Consortium.

We serve young adults aged 18-28:

  • who experience mental health issues that impact mood and relationships.
  • who may struggle with daily activities such as school, employment, or other aspects of adult life.
  • who may suffer from co-occurring substance use.
  • who may engage in addiction-related compulsive behaviors.
  • who may struggle with social skills, self-esteem, or a sense of purpose.
  • who are seeking therapeutic residential treatment support in reaching vocational, educational, and independent living goals.

If you or your child thinks Spruce could be the right fit, we would love to hear from you.

Testimonials


I want to thank all of you, the staff, for your enduring support and gentle guidance, for helping me through knowing when to step in and when to allow me to stumble on my own. You have all helped me through so much in so many ways. It would not be exaggerating to say that I owe you not only my recovery, but my very life itself. My gratitude exceeds my capacity to verbalize
Resident from Massachusetts
It is my great pleasure to thank you for the support you provided my daughter in her struggle to become a happy and functional adult. Because of your belief in fostering the human spirit, you made it possible for T. to find her own strength and define her personal weaknesses. You were there to encourage, support and nudge her to continue the tough road to recovery.
Parent from New Jersey
I have finally visited Spruce Mountain Inn. My, oh my, was I impressed. Your staff helped me get a sense of what a caring, responsible and loving place Spruce Mountain is. All of you together project an image of substance: a real, honest haven for these adults and their families therefore.

a whole-picture approach

Our Philosophy

a whole picture approach

Our Philosophy


Spruce Mountain Inn’s residential treatment philosophy for young adults is based on a whole-picture approach. Our treatment model is designed to teach clients how to manage the various spheres of a successful, independent life. We believe a whole-picture approach is more effective than treating mental health diagnoses and symptoms alone. The Spruce Mountain Inn approach to residential treatment for young adults is:
Holistic treatment

Comprehensive

A dedicated treatment team uses a holistic treatment approach, integrating attention to emotional wellness, career and educational development, and practical skills development in helping residents transition to successful independence.

Inter-disciplinary

Customized

A dedicated master’s-level clinical Case Manager coordinates an interdisciplinary team for each of our residents. Case Managers work closely with residents on setting goals and tracking progress, and Case Managers serve as the main point of contact for families and collateral service providers.

dedicated treatment teams

Continuous

Each resident works continuously with a dedicated multidisciplinary treatment team who follows their progress through the Spruce Mountain Inn program continuum toward greater independence, a less structured living situation, and increased responsibility.

an intimate support community

Community-based

Our small size allows us to cultivate an intimate support community that enhances the efficacy of our treatment model and allows residents to build and benefit from peer relationships. Additionally, residents are supported as they engage in real-world activities outside of Spruce—including work, volunteerism, and recreation and/or attending school or community recovery support groups.

Why Residential Treatment


Residential treatment programs have the potential to be much more effective than treatment received in someone's typical living environment. Our program is designed to be immersive and community-based.

The benefits of residential treatment include:


24-hour access to a seasoned team of caring, professional staff.

Full immersion in a supportive community with other young people working to overcome similar challenges.

The opportunity to experience a fresh environment, break habits, and escape triggers experienced in a typical living situation.

The opportunity to work, build life-skills, and contribute creatively in a controlled, supportive setting.

Moderating the use of technology and social media, the overuse of which may fuel anxiety and depression.

Family therapy and parent coaching (for parents and other affected family members) to help improve communication, foster cooperation, and facilitate healthy respect among family members.
