Havenwood Academy, in Cedar City, Utah, is expanding their capacity from 16 beds to 28.  Havenwood specializes in treating teen girls with attachment disorders, specifically Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), and is licensed by the State of Utah and accredited by The Joint Commission.

 “It is exciting to be growing, as a high-end, research-based clinically based treatment option for families with children who suffer from Reactive Attachment Disorder,” said Linda Reeves, LCSW, Clinical Director. “RAD is not well understood in the United States and there are few resources available to the many families who need help. We offer a program and services that are designed to help parents and families regain, repair and rebuild damaged and important relationships.”

As a clinically sophisticated program using varying types of evidenced-based therapy like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement & Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Equine Therapy, there are beds available for girls to enroll.  Along with the recent growth, Havenwood Academy welcomes visits from referring professionals and educational consultants to explore and learn about the program.
