Discover Seven Stars

Seven Stars is a therapeutic program for children with neurodevelopmental disorders ages 13-18. We offer students and their families the opportunity to build lifelong skills and confidence with the finest individualized and comprehensive treatment plans available.

Our program is designed to utilize the best in residential, wilderness adventure, and outdoor environments. Seven Stars’ foundation of success is built upon positive psychology. We use a personalized and strengths-based approach in order to help students identify and develop their strengths.

We work to avoid power struggles and punitive punishments. Our program encourages our students to get involved in the community, establish fast resets, and how to avoid and deal with breakdowns. We connect our students with logical and natural consequences of their actions. Through these practices, our students grow and begin changing their behaviors.

Seven Stars offers the most comprehensive program and facilities available, while also operating as a small and highly personalized therapeutic program.

Set among the beautiful Wasatch Mountains, the local area offers plenty for adventure and wilderness expeditions. We use the natural surroundings for hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, and water activities.

I don't know how to say thank you enough. Before Seven Stars I wanted to run away. Today I adore my son who is turning into a young man.

Since 2003, Dr. Gordon Day has passionately helped young people with a wide range of family, emotional, social, neurodevelopmental and behavioral problems. Gordon’s mission has been to help people find their strengths and their own passion for living a full and rewarding life.  He is particularly sensitive to the pressures, frustrations and disappointments that adolescents face that can sometimes cause them and their loved ones to want to withdraw and throw their hands up in despair.

Dr. Day knows that you really have to understand where a student is coming from and understand their patterns of strengths and needs. When we truly know an individual and their struggles, only then can we truly help.

Dr. Day has pioneered the use of outdoor therapy activities and outdoor living as a dynamic and effective therapeutic tool for learning, confidence building and skill building. His programs provide effective, supportive and encouraging environments that help students find their strengths and power.
