Why We Are Different

The right treatment environment with the right team is key for effective and sustainable results.

Breaking Barriers in Mental Health Treatment

At Equinox Counseling & Wellness Center our extensive backgrounds in residential treatment, psychiatric hospitals, wilderness therapy, and outpatient treatment provide us with in-depth expertise to skillfully integrate the value of each of these settings into our specialized treatment facility. Our unparalleled programs, provide families a new level of care within the continuum of traditional therapy and out-of-home treatment. The results are refreshing, sustainable and life changing.

The Problem

It’s likely that you’ve arrived here because your child and your family have cycled through countless treatment providers, therapeutic resources, wilderness or residential programs, and perhaps even multiple hospitalizations, IOP or PHP programs.

You’ve done this only to have your child and your family revert to old behaviors and disruptive patterns in your home. We know this because many of the families who come to us share a similar story, and despite multiple treatment efforts have been unable to realize the results they’ve been looking for and deserve.

Unfortunately, many young people are still referred to these programs for lack of a better option, when what they really need is a higher level of care and support, but in the environment in which they actually need it…. in their home, schools, and communities. We fill that gap.

“We felt such heartache when our son, and our family hit the wall. The impact on our family was painful and causing extreme distress. We needed intervention to change.” - Reflections from parents of 17-yr. old boy prior to admission.

Our Solution

At Equinox, we believe some kids need out of home placement some of the time, but most don’t need it most of the time. We’re on a mission to disrupt the cycle of multiple providers, families living in chronic distress, ineffective behaviors, and unsustainable changes.

Family-Level Healing is our foundation. We believe families that learn, grow, and change together, heal together. We understand how the psychiatric, emotional, and behavioral issues are at play with one another and truly treat the root cause of these problems. We also understand that parents are not the cause of the problems their child is experiencing.

Our therapeutic approach is truly, and uniquely different. We are a one-of-a-kind intensive, milieu-based treatment program, one that utilizes a scaled level of intensity, replicating the best elements of residential treatment and wilderness therapy in an intensive outpatient setting. We do this to help you and your family achieve breakthrough progress and sustained results.

“I’m glad we have a relationship now. It’s nice and feels good. Equinox has given me the tools I need to succeed. What we as a family have gained is far superior to what we had to sacrifice.” - Same 17-yr. old’s reflections upon graduation
