In 2019 we’re expanding our continuum of services with ARCH Academy, Adolescent Recovery of Cumberland Heights, a unique new program which will provide 60 days to six months of residential care for adolescent boys, ages 14 – 18, suffering from alcohol and drug addiction.

About Arch Academy

Campus layout of The Arch Academy coming in 2019Adolescent Recovery of Cumberland Heights (ARCH) Academy is a unique program to treat boys, 14-18 battling drug and alcohol addiction. Because many of the teens who come through our doors suffer with other mental health issues such as mood and/or anxiety disorders, our staff is built of highly-trained professionals equipped to treat co-occurring illnesses.

Currently our program offers 30-90 days of residential treatment. Once ARCH opens at our new site in late 2019, we anticipate an average stay of six months. Research shows recovery can take more time for teenagers.

ARCH Academy offers a fully accredited private high school with grades 7-12 and includes GED prep, credit recovery options and follow up placement. ARCH Academy proudly celebrates frequent graduations for those who finish high school while in treatment.

Our program is based on 12-Step recovery, proven clinical therapy, educational services and adventure programming.

An onsite, private licensed high school by the state will allow the teens to keep up current studies and graduate high school. The school will meet the unique needs of students pursuing recovery from substances. Each student will follow the curriculum of his local school district standards in all core and elective areas. In addition, our licensed teacher will work closely with families to provide guidance when transitioning back into a traditional academic setting.

Research published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) shows that multi-component programs which combine two or more effective programs, such as family and school programs, can be even more effective than single programs alone. We’re implementing a program which offers these as well as aftercare and outpatient recovery options.
