A New Way to Treat
Adolescent Girls Struggling
A heartfelt message from our CEO!
Embracing Life with Courage and Joy!
Cascade Academy is a residential treatment center that specializes in treating anxiety in teenage girls during some of their most critical years, between the ages of 13 and 18.
We understand that the causes of your daughter’s anxiety are unique to her and are influenced by many factors such as her genetics, her physical health, life experiences, her patterns of thinking, distress tolerance levels, and an ability to connect in healthy relationships. At Cascade Academy, each of these areas are addressed by our treatment team in a personalized plan. Each student will learn how to achieve goals and move through her anxiety in a small setting of no more than 26 adolescent girls while living in a peaceful environment in scenic Midway, Utah.
Why Specialize in Anxiety?
Anxiety is the number one mental health disorder experienced by adolescents and teenage girls are twice as likely as boys to experience clinical levels of anxiety. Research shows that up to 2.4 million adolescent girls in the United States each year will experience debilitating anxiety. Anxiety rates triple from the beginning of adolescence to young adulthood if left untreated. Anxiety is also the root cause of many other disorders. Treating your daughter’s anxiety will in turn treat the root cause of other disorders she may be struggling with as well.
Cascade Academy treats teenage girls with a primary diagnosis of severe anxiety. Anxiety disorders may include Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Trichotillomania, Conversion Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Separation Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia), phobias, Selective Mutism, Panic Disorder, and Agoraphobia. By narrowing the focus of teenage girls treated at Cascade Academy, your daughter will be in an environment free from the influences of drugs and alcohol, severe sexual issues, and violence. While some students at Cascade Academy may have experimented with some of these behaviors, it is not their primary diagnosis or the focus of treatment.
