Campus life is based on a model characterized by academic structure, therapeutic support, and healthy recreation. It’s a balance of fun, connection, and growth in a safe environment with engaging activities that have the power to transform at this critical stage in life. We are able to channel their abundance of energy, curiosity, and feelings of uncertainty into full days that leave these young men and women fulfilled and at peace as they complete their day.
Turning Winds has invested heavily in resident advisors, a critical role that distinguishes the program. These direct-care staff are highly experienced faculty charged with objectives that are traditionally left to more inexperienced personnel in their early 20s. These professionals work hard all day to provide real-time processing of behaviors and deal with challenges while helping facilitate activities.
School is conducted in small classroom groups where one-on-one support and individual attention can be provided. Academic instruction is followed by clinical groups lead by therapists, licensed addiction counselors, and specialty experts. Team building activities keep them engaged and connected with their peers throughout the day which leaves very little downtime on this beautiful 150-acre campus. More recreation time is available on weekends for pickup basketball, sitting by the river, or sledding in the winter.
