Quality recreation is an important part of any healthy person's life. At Daniels Academy, our experiential education program emphasizes artistic expression through a variety of media as well as true Adventure Education. Students have the opportunity to grow their skills in many areas, including: film making, ceramics, rock climbing, snowboarding/skiing, graphic design, cycling, and athletics.

Besides allowing students to have FUN and be exposed to a variety of new and challenging experiences, these activities give students new in-roads to various aspects of their lives. By associating new experiences with old feelings and properly contextualizing coping behaviors, students learn to re-create their concept of leisure, wellness, and enjoyment in a healthy context. Students gain confidence and self esteem by developing new skills and refining previous talents.

Our therapeutic program emphasizes awareness, self esteem, acceptance, relationships and inherent curiosity. We help students to identify and effectively manage significant emotions and emotional experiences. Working in conjunction with the student's family, academic faculty, and student living staff, our clinical team will consider all aspects of a student's life to design a tailored treatment plan. This plan will address the needs of the student from a holistic perspective of emotional, psychological, social, physical, academic and family relationship perspectives. The supportive therapeutic environment will set the stage for understanding and overcoming obstacles that have prevented success for the student in the past.

At Daniels Academy we believe that family support and involvement are crucial to the success of our students. Parents and students are actively involved in Family Systems therapy throughout the treatment process. Every student has a phone call to his family on a weekly basis. Also, each student’s therapist has a weekly phone call with parents.

Visitation is also encouraged and can be arranged through the student’s therapist.

At Daniels Academy, you and your child are part of a team that is dedicated to promoting healthy growth and providing help. We do not consider your child a fix-it project. We know you don't either. Instead, we see all of us as a team, working together, each with an important role to play. We do not blame or find fault at Daniels Academy. Instead, we focus on solutions to problems by asking each team member to take appropriate responsibility and do their part to assist in the growth process. The truth is, when parent, child, and staff work together the probability for success is much greater - we really do need your help.
