Compassionate and caring support from families is important to the teens and the address their behaviors in an honest and open manner. We welcome you to visit as often as possible!

Is Arrowhead Right for Your Family?


We are located in rural Coal Valley, Illinois, just a few minutes outside the Quad Cities metropolitan area. We are a residential treatment program, meaning our students live here full-time. Our program accepts both boys and girls, and combines individual and group therapy with grade-level appropriate education. Our therapy includes access to mental health services and substance abuse treatment as needed.

Below, you may fill out our pre-assessment evaluation. This is an extensive questionnaire designed to give us a better idea of your child's challenges and needs. The evaluation must be completed in one sitting, and may take an hour or more. You will be asked to provide information about your child's personal background, health and treatment history, education, and goals. We ask that you be specific and provide dates whenever possible.

This form helps us evaluate whether Arrowhead is a good fit for your family, and lets us reach out with specific advice, timelines, and costs.

Our per-diem is competitive, but the average stay at Arrowhead costs $8,700 per month. Can you accommodate this cost?
