The Cascade Trail at Alpine Academy

Alpine Academy’s psychiatric treatment for girls, ages 12—18

Each of our program components supports the patient as they define their trail or journey through the program. With each successful completion of the Cascade program components, mile markers are earned which can be turned into positive rewards for completing the map of their journey. The program encourages patients and families to focus on learning, communication, positive coping skills and strengthening of the family core.
