At Stonewater, your loved one is able to continue their education while in recovery in our private school program. Our residents can either remain enrolled in their current school to maintain course work virutally or enroll in a nationally accredited online program to stay in school and earn credits while attending our residential treatment program. A private school setting that integrates your child’s level-appropriate academic education with recovery skills, motivational reinforcement and an understanding staff trained in ADHD, substance use, co-occurring disorders help your child to more seamlessly transition to school and social life when leaving Stonewater.
STONEWATER BOYS’ PRIVATE SCHOOL PROGRAM
Stonewater’s private school program offers a series of online-based classes provided by a third party virtual platform or coordinated coursework from the school where the student is currently enrolled. Each course is also supplemented and supervised by a qualified teacher. Through this academic platform, our residents are able to move at their own pace through a unique curriculum designed to meet their individual objectives. Our on-staff teacher and tutors are available to help with coursework assigned from each curriculum for each individual student. The academic schedule is balanced with therapeutic sessions to create an optimal environment for simultaneous clinical treatment and academic advancement.

- Dedicated one-on-one time with a teacher
- Supportive academic progress reports
- Academic skill-building
- Alternative approaches to difficult subjects
- Active study habits
- Stress-relieving practices
- Uncovering of new academic strengths
- Deepened understanding of substance use and co-occurring behaviors
SUBSTANCE USE CAN LEAD TO DROP OUT
Over one million high school students drop out of school in the United States each year. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, more than 30 percent of those students use drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, most of these adolescents will never be admitted into recovery treatment because parents are either unaware of the adolescent’s substance use or unsure of how to seek effective treatment.
To prevent adolescents from falling deeper into co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, and further behind in school, we believe accurate diagnoses and individualized treatment programs are necessary. Substance use treatment that focuses on talk and experiential therapies while also teaching life skills and positive skill-building will help your adolescent develop a positive outlook and the necessary tools for successful long-term recovery. When adolescents are uplifted and encouraged to believe in progress, positive change can happen. Stonewater’s boys’ private school program allows our residents to enhance academic learning abilities alongside mental health and substance use therapy to comprehensively address their individual diagnoses.
