Wow, what a special place you have in Spruce Mountain Inn. The people working at Spruce are incredible and they are what makes your program so special and so unique! I had no idea how warm, nurturing and professional a place you have.
Educational Consultant from Tennessee
When I came to the Inn, I was really skeptical that anything would help me. I fell apart twice in college and was eventually forced home on a medical leave. I got a new therapist and psychiatrist and was in an intensive outpatient program, but none of it was enough for me to feel better and do better. I had very little confidence that a residential program would help. At the time, it seemed like the “least bad option” to me. I worked with an educational consultant and looked at four programs before choosing Spruce Mountain Inn. The Inn program looked like a well-oiled machine; they knew what to do and did it all.
Resident, New York
I do not have the words to adequately thank you and the other member of my son’s team for all you have done for our family. But for you folks, odds are that he would not even be alive today. I am grateful that he has found his voice and the confidence to more competently handle his circumstances. This has been brought about by the loving, skillful guidance he received from the very special people at Spruce Mountain.

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.

Call us at 802-454-8353 today.

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