Description: The mission of Chrysalis is to provide the best quality therapeutic services, education, and experiential opportunities to adolescents and their families in the context of a warm and nurturing environment while maintaining a commitment to integrity in all that we do.
Chrysalis is a therapeutic, home based residential setting for adolescent girls ages 13 to 18. Chrysalis enables students to develop healthy coping, living, communication, and interpersonal skills. Residents live family-style in large log homes, hold each other accountable for actions, and become responsible for themselves.
Chrysalis provides a special blend of care and therapy with a gentle firmness to recover from a past of pain, sorrow, untenable family situations, personal mistakes and self-destructive behavior. Regular group therapy sessions called circles reinforce these ideas of individual responsibility and group support.
Chrysalis school allows our teachers to tailor academics to the individual¿s abilities and needs through small classes, one-on-one tutorials, and independent study opportunities. Students are able to transition to our local public high school when they demonstrate emotional, social, and academic readiness.
Chrysalis utilizes outdoor adventure to help residents learn about their strength, style of learning, ability to master work, and ability to act as a member of a team. The program is physically active, incorporating horseback riding, downhill and cross-country skiing, rafting, biking, kayaking, climbing, and cultural travel. Safety is primary, with excursions taking place under the direction and leadership of trained professionals.
