Conditions We Treat
Our Therapeutic Treatment Environment
Specializing in family-style living and relationship development, we foster an environment that supports identity development, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging. Our therapeutic boarding school also has a transitional living program where students can attend public school, get a job, and more.
Who We Treat
Many students who come to our therapy program struggle with forming healthy habits at home and in their social groups. They may have made poor choices leading to confusion and a loss of self-esteem and are commonly dealing with anxiety, body image issues, depression, eating disorders, self-esteem issues, learning struggles, mild attachment issues, poor relationships, and stress- and trauma-related conditions.
Therapeutic Activities at Chrysalis
Our therapeutic school’s serene location in the Montana wilderness allows students to stay active and gain mastery in several different activities. They discover new talents that build confidence, from boating, biking, hiking, and rafting to downhill skiing and snowboarding.
A Healing Location in Montana
Our behavioral school’s calm and peaceful setting on a lake amid Montana’s majestic Rocky Mountains is a gentle reminder to students that life is truly an adventure. They are encouraged to unplug from urban stressors so they can find balance, healing, and peace.
Boarding School Living for Girls
The Chrysalis therapeutic boarding school provides students with a personalized approach to teacher-led academics while they’re receiving therapy. Our certified teachers instruct small classes through focused academics, and teens earn credit year-round, finding or rekindling a love of learning that will serve them throughout their lives.
Additionally, students live in homes rather than dorms and can decorate their living space. This lifestyle encourages them to work together to build friendships and examine old living patterns that prevented growth.
Healing Travel for Girls
Chrysalis is the only therapeutic boarding school that guarantees students one international trip during their stay — at no extra cost. Believing that exposure to other cultures is vital to a well-rounded life and that travel is an invaluable experience, our therapeutic boarding school empowers girls to navigate international travel, continuing to build confidence that carries over into their everyday lives.
Our therapists have at least a master’s degree level of expertise and encourage students to develop healthy, safe relationships and positive lifelong habits. Through building connections and healing wounds, therapists work with each student to improve family relationships. Family therapy is an integral part of our therapeutic program, and families are involved in weekly therapy along with parent/child retreats and family workshops.
Transitional Living at Milestones
If your student has attended prior treatment programs and needs the structure and support of a transition program, Chrysalis also offers transitional living. Located in the heart of Eureka, Montana, Milestones provides care to adolescents and teens struggling with mental health challenges like anxiety and depression.
Milestones students attend the local public high school or community college, obtain jobs in the community, learn independent living skills, receive individual, group, and family therapy, all while living in our cozy homes near downtown Kalispell.
