• Residential Treatment Program for Teens 14-17

Holistic Approach

The Solstice philosophy includes a belief in a holistic approach. This approach focuses on treating the whole person, not just the “identified problem” or “problem behavior.” The problem behaviors are most often symptoms of more significant core issues. For instance, we view addictive behaviors, whether they be self-harming, substance abuse, or based in unhealthy relationships, as being symptoms of more core issues. The primary goal of our therapy for girls and assigned female at birth is to access those core issues so genuine healing can occur.

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
 Laini Taylor, Child of Smoke & Bone

In addition, a holistic approach accounts for the fact that, for instance, our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational selves are all bound together. This “mind-body” philosophy is supported by a large and growing body of research that our mental and physical health is intertwined. A problem or deficit in one area will impact the other.

Our therapy for girls and assigned female at birth acknowledges the fact that to create lasting, effective change, a holistic approach to health is necessary. This fact underlies and drives all the components of the Solstice program.
