Uinta Academy

About Uinta Academy

Uinta Academy is the nation’s leading multi-dimensional residential treatment center for adolescent girls. We specialize with girls who struggle with relationships or attachment or who have experienced trauma. Uinta’s clinically intense and sophisticated treatment program is balanced by a warm, nurturing, family-style living environment. Girls who come to Uinta are pleasantly surprised that they live in a home in a residential neighborhood, that the mountains are right outside their door, and that they get to do all the normal things that teenagers like to do.

Uinta Academy offers intense clinical treatment in the form of individual, family, and group therapy delivered by licensed professionals. A research-based therapeutic milieu, accredited academic program, equine assisted psychotherapy, a robust integrated cultural arts program, recreational therapy, and a healthy lifestyles element round out the program at Uinta.

Uinta is comprised of four homes that are interspersed in a rural community. The homes are located in close proximity so that the girls can make friendships with other girls in the program.
