This Residential Rehabilitation Services for Youth program is located approximately 10 miles north of Watertown on a beautiful 115 acre farm. The “Farm” offers a holistic rehabilitative environment to young men in the age range from 16 to 20. The program is individualized to meet each resident’s diverse needs, and offers a variable length of stay, from 6 to 12 months, depending on progress in the program and individual circumstances.

The program encourages individuals to develop respect for the self and others and responsibility via a wide variety of therapeutic activities, vocational and educational components, and recreational opportunities. The farm environment is a good training ground for recovery because it requires commitment, self-discipline, patience, and forgiveness. Residents and staff work and play side by side in all aspects of the program.

The program encourages the use of various avenues of self-help. The residents learn to examine the impact that addiction has had on their lives and confront non-productive patterns that have lead to dependence on drugs and alcohol.
