Solstice RTC

Solstice  offers young women ages 14 – 18 a specially designed program for their unique needs.  

As a clinically intense, relationship-focused approach, Solstice provides teen girls– and their families– an opportunity to begin a new journey, believe that change is possible, and become the person they wish to be.

Girls and families not only learn necessary skills to manage the challenges they face, but more importantly therapy gets to the core of the behaviors and heals the underlying trauma and issues. This, combined with our principle driven approach results in permanent, lasting, internal change that will stand up in the face of opposition and challenge.

Our relationship-based approach emphasizes high levels of family intervention, emotional safety, healthy boundaries, and a phase program, creating an environment conducive to healing from trauma of all varieties. Girls arrive uncertain of their future and often unaware of their incredible potential. Stage by stage, our girls reestablish a focus on who they can become and rebuild their personal and interpersonal skills.  A new, powerful journey starts and Solstice and our girls leave with the skills to continue on a healthier, happier path.
