Liahona Academy is known as a "family treatment program". We believe in bringing families together through treating personal and interpersonal issues. When someone has significant personal issues such as addiction, major defiance, anxiety, depression, etc., it negatively impacts the family relationships. By treating these significant personal as well as family issues, families are able to facilitate healing and rebuild their relationships with one another.

Liahona Academy is a mental health residential treatment center for boys. We serve boys at Junior High and High School levels, ages 12-17. Located in Southern Utah, Liahona Academy was developed to help teens that are headed down a destructive path. Liahona was designed for families looking for real help for their son. Often families have tried therapy at home or alternative schools and find that this level of care was insufficient or ineffective for their child. Many of our students struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse problems, drugs, academic difficulties, low self-esteem, poor social skills, ADD, ADHD, and problems with authority. We specialize in creating an effective and supportive treatment environment to help teens who have proven resistant to other settings or attempts to help.

Liahona works with all private insurance companies. Please contact us for more help with financial needs
