Admissions Criteria

Our girls are wonderful young women who have experienced emotional pain and behavioral disturbances and have often lost their way in relationships, academics, and social functioning. They no longer believe in themselves or their ability to succeed. The young women at Uinta Academy are dealing with trauma, attachment disorders, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, and a variety of other issues that affect not only themselves but also their entire family system. Uinta Academy takes a family systems approach to treatment in order to help the entire family heal and be happy.

Due to our clinical sophistication, evidence based therapeutic milieu and supportive academics, over 90% of our program graduates have not needed additional residential treatment.
