The special needs of adolescents and their families are our primary concern. The Rosecrance adolescent campus for teens ages 12-18 includes a school, chapel, gymnasium and fitness center, and healing garden. Two Monarch Recovery Homes serve 28, 15- to 20-year-old young women, who have completed a primary addiction treatment program.

Treatment is based on the disease model of addiction and the 12-Step philosophy, and is gender-specific. A strong family program and recreational therapy program complement the curriculum. Programs are under the direction of a medical director who is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and addictionologist. All programs are Joint Commission accredited.
