About

Gender-Separate Treatment for Teens Ages 12-17

Muir Wood is a highly-respected, gender-specific, residential treatment center designed specifically for teens ages 12-17 struggling with mental health, behavioral, and/or substance abuse issues. Located on 26 acres in beautiful Sonoma County, California, our 7 campuses provide teens a safe and structured environment to explore sensitive underlying issues within a highly credentialed clinical setting. Our gender-specific environment invites teens to build strong peer support essential in early recovery. Our highly credentialed team works closely with teens and their families to develop individualized treatment plans that may include group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectal behavior therapy, and-when needed-medication management. Our guiding philosophy emphasizes kindness and respect over confrontation or control. We create conditions that allow teens to feel valued, engaged, and willing to begin productive lives in recovery. Muir Wood is a trusted in-network provider with Kaiser Permanente, Anthem Blue Cross, MHN, Cigna and Aetna health insurers.

Teen Residential Treatment Details

Because of the small number of teens accepted, Muir Wood is highly individualized and extremely effective at treating not only substance abuse, but underlying issues such as trauma, depression, or anxiety that often lead to self-medication with drugs and/or alcohol. It is the philosophy of Muir Wood, that substance abuse is a symptom of an underlying issue. Our gender-specific program provides a safe setting for teens the vulnerability to open up in treatment, exploring and discussing sensitive issues that may otherwise be kept inside. Therapy is provided in a home-like setting that promotes communication in a compassionate and thoughtful way, never shaming or punitive. Without the obvious distraction of the opposite gender, teens are free to engage in discussions that can often be difficult and introspective. A gender-specific residential treatment setting allows teens to be supportive of their peers, feel a true sense of safety, hold each other accountable for participation in the program, remain open and willing to show emotion, and display less aggression and posturing, as is common in mixed-gender programs.

Length of Stay Info

The Residential Treatment Program at Muir Wood is comprehensive, dual-diagnosis programming for teens located in idyllic Petaluma, California. The typical length of stay is 45-90 days. This length of stay allows for deeper work on family dynamics and recovery, as well as individualized work on mental health and behavioral challenges. It also provides families the opportunity to put into supervised practice the communication and relationship skills learned while at Muir Wood. And, at no additional cost, Muir Wood also provides once-per-week, 16-week parent coaching and aftercare online programming (post discharge) with a nationally recognized, licensed clinician. Our goal at Muir Wood has always been to provide exceptional, accessible care for teens and their families. A program of the highest caliber, but also accessible as it is in-network with most major insurance providers such as Anthem, Kaiser Permanente, Cigna, Aetna and MHN.
