Indian Oaks Academy offers highly effective treatment programs for male and female adolescents with a wide variety of emotional and behavioral problems.

Usually, a referral source, such as a probation officer, therapist or attorney, for example, will refer a child to residential treatment; at this point, the child has been through counseling, group therapy, support groups or other types of treatment, and nothing has helped. The next option is a residential treatment program. Indian Oaks Academy admissions criteria are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Education: On-site educational services are incorporated into the treatment programs. The school programs comply with Illinois Department of Education guidelines for primary and secondary schools.
