Elk River Treatment Program
Review Text :

As builder of the labyrinth at the Elk River Treatment Program facility, I was impressed with both the cooperation and professionalism of the staff with whom I interacted, and the attitude and cooperation of the program participants (teens) who assisted me with spreading the gravel base and locating field stones for the labyrinth circuits. This is an 11 circuit, Chartre labyrinth, approximately 60 feet in diameter. In terms of the volume and weight of materials, it was a gargantuan effort, made much easier because of the genuine care and willingness of the teens who were asked to help me. I did not expect this, and it's a testament to the quality of the professionals who work with these youth every day. Not one of the youth who helped with the build approached it as a burden, or with dread. There was an authentic and eager commitment to "service", which speaks volumes about how they respond to the profound work of the counselors, teachers, administrators, and field staff at Elk River.

My professional experience of Elk River Treatment was premised on training staff on the use of the labyrinth for contemplation and healing. My name is Rev Kerry Holder Joffrion and I am an educator. I find the staff; including field staff and clinical counselors to be thoughtful, intentional, creative and practical in their efforts to empower teens and young adults in recovery and restoration. Program clients are engaged and helpful in their group work and said that walking the path gave them meaning. Thank you for this important work you do with dedication and hope for their futures. Elk River Treatment Program changes lives.

We used Elk River Treatment Program (2017, 2019) for two of our adopted children who suffered severe trauma and attachment issues. We experienced success both in their helping the children confront their past along with tools to successfully guide their future. Additionally, we received parent training to help us learn better skill-sets once they returned. We were very pleased with the program. Highly recommended.

As a family therapist in private practice, I have had the privilege of working with Elk River Treatment Center and their staff for the past nine (9) years. In fact, my most recent client to grafuate Elk River, is the 38th adolescent I have had graduate Elk River's program. Overall, every family has been grateful for the positive experience they have had working with Elk River. The 16 year-old girl I had graduate two (2) months ago has transitioned home smoothly, and has shown incredible changes in attitude and behavior. I just finished a session with the family, and as they were leaving my office, the Dad said, "Thank you for helping our daughter return to the person she was meant to be." This is the outcome that I have come to expect from Elk River, easily one of the top five (5) adolescent programs in the country⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Elk River Treatment Program
Review Text :

Almost 14 years ago I was a resident at Elk River. I can truly say, it saved my life, taught me so many life skills and helped mend a very broken family. I have read the reviews that some have left bashing this program. I am honestly in shock that some people would make up so many lies. Not only was I a resident there, I worked there several years ago after I received my college degree. Take it from me, someone who has seen both sides of this program, it WORKS. And the staff truly and genuinely care. That is really rare and hard to find these days. I’ve seen staff put in so much work and so many hours just for the benefit of the children. Elk river is not a luxury resort. But let’s be honest, troubled teenagers and children don’t need a luxury resort. They need a place that will teach them structure, discipline, accountability, hard work, and then and only then will they see the positive and rewarding outcome. If you want a place to teach them these things and want them to get better and act responsibly, this is the place. If you want your child to be pampered and go off learn nothing and get nothing out of it, keep them at home with you or send them somewhere else. I’ve read some reviews that say that their child was starved, I just had to laugh. That is bogus. I gained 30 pounds when I was there because of how much I ate. And I NEEDED to gain that weight. If some people need to lose weight, then the program and staff will cater to that as well. Each resident there has their own treatment plan, a lot of thought and time goes into developing and determining the best plan for each child. I can say this and know that it’s true because once again, I was a resident there and later on an employee. The best part about the treatment plan is that the parents are extremely involved. Parents don’t get to call ALL the shots, because obviously that doesn’t work. But they do have their own input for their child. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this place. I am writing this because I know how much it helped me. I have nothing to gain from writing this, I no longer work there. I just felt the need to share after reading some of these reviews that are just completely untrue and made up. As a parent myself, if my child was expressing negative behavior and needed a place to go for help, there is no doubt that I would 100% send him to Elk River. It is 2021, kids are smart. Kids are manipulative and unfortunately sometimes lie to their parents so that they can come home from treatment. And after reading some of these reviews, there is no doubt in my mind that this has taken place with some of the parents and children who have chosen to bash this place online. It’s bogus. Elk River staff, I love you guys and appreciate all of your hard work! I love the program and most importantly I believe in the program with everything in me. I will be forever grateful for this place. If I hadn’t gone and gotten help, I wouldn’t be the successful and happy adult that I am today. So, thank you. Thank you so much!

    Inpatient or Residential Mental Health Treatment
    Inpatient Mental Health | Mental Health
    Inpatient or residential mental health treatment. Inpatient treatment is the most intensive level of treatment, offering 24-hour care in a secure unit of a treatment facility or hospital. Residential treatment is a step down from inpatient treatment. While there is structure and some monitoring to treatment, the big difference between residential and inpatient treatment involves the setting in which it is carried out. While inpatient treatment is typically carried out in a treatment facility or hospital, residential treatment is usually carried out in more of a home-like environment.
