Has your troubled girl been diagnosed with mental or emotional behavior disorders? Has she suffered adverse adoption-related trauma issues, tragedy or physical/sexual abuse? Does she display harmful, risky behavior, suicidal thoughts or actions, defiance, withdrawal, alcohol or drug abuse?
Parents or guardians who doesn’t know how to help a distressed girl can turn to Red Hawk. Whatever keeps her from enjoying her best life—mental and emotional behavior disorders, learning disabilities—the outstanding residential treatment for girls at Red Hawk Behavioral Health offers personal therapeutic guidance for girls from Colorado.
Benefits of Equine Assisted Therapy for girls include recognizing self-worth and personal integrity, forming healthy relationships, communication, valuing trust and respect, assessing assertiveness vs. aggressiveness, acquiring respect for diversity and individuality, healing from trauma, and the importance of teamwork and community.
Our non-traditional approach to therapy at Red Hawk consists of many experiential ‘hands-on’ therapies that help girls participate in their own treatment, while working with horses, gardening, hiking, camping, swimming and river rafting. As girls participate in the challenging ropes course, they learn about positive risk-taking, personal limit perceptions, performance under pressure, and how they give and receive support from others. When girls work together as a team, they can grasp how to achieve even more than they dreamed possible.
Red Hawk’s non-traditional approach to academic success also works with each girl’s individual learning style, and ability. Girls may use music, movement in special chairs, quiet rooms, or extra help to stay focused as they earn academic credits. Some learning environments include psycho-therapy with a certified clinician, while trained staff lead the recreational & equine therapy, with accompanying therapists. At Red Hawk’s northern Arizona campus, girls benefit from activities that teach independence, life skills, teamwork, and problem-solving. Off-campus activity sites include nearby parks like Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Capital Reef, Kanaraville Falls, and Cedar Breaks National Monument.
Red Hawk’s exceptional therapeutic program for middle school and high school teen girls creates an effective residential treatment environment where girls in crisis change, and healing begins. Teen girls come to us from around the nation, including Colorado.
Red Hawk’s home-like residence for 24 girls includes wholesome meals served three times a day by our knowledgeable kitchen staff. Because Red Hawk’s clinical therapy involves complex family issues, parents attend optional weekend events, and weekly family sessions that support reunification for each girl when she leaves residential treatment.
