Our Program

One of the most difficult decisions you will ever make is to send your teen away for help. We get it. Our compassionate and understanding staff has been working with youth struggling at home, in school or the community since 1945. Our clear and caring approach empowers these individuals to see the areas in which they need help and make the necessary changes. Arrowhead’s structured and focused environment offers opportunities to learn new coping skills for lifelong success. Get your family back. Let us help.
