Foothills at Red Oak Recovery is a residential adolescent treatment program for boys, ages 14-17, that provides gender separate, developmentally specific, evidence-based clinical care for those struggling with substance use, trauma, and mental health issues. Set in a beautiful home-like environment on a 94-acre working horse farm, it is located between Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina. In April, Foothills celebrated their two year anniversary.
Clients receive trauma-informed care, social and emotional development, academic support, experiential activities, recreation, and life skills. Additionally, Foothills integrates lifestyle medicine into their program to support the physical, mental, emotional, and social wellbeing of clients. Being a small, gender and developmentally specific program with Master’s level, dually licensed (clinical additions and mental health) clinicians allows for clients to receive a minimum of 30 hours of individualized clinical care per week to work on their substance use, trauma, and mental health concerns.
An emotionally focused family program specifically designed to help families better understand family dynamics, strengthen relationships, and move towards a future of recovery and support in recovery is also a necessary component of the program. Foothills believes that serving the entire family system is imperative in moving forward in their lives and achieving sustainable recovery and healing.
“We are grateful to have been of service to clients and families, and we look forward to continuing the important work that we do with this age group,” says the President and Founder of Red Oak Recovery® programs.
