The Academy strikes a balance between therapy, academics and adventure and is designed to provide an individualized treatment within a therapeutic group milieu. Though a primary 12-Step addiction program, ARCH Academy treats the whole child, including underlying co-occurring mental health issues, family issues, relational barriers and poor academic confidence.
