Everyone faces challenges in life. Given the right tools, skills and support, everyone has an opportunity to thrive. Through our trauma-sensitive approach and family engagement model, Pressley Ridge’s goal is to create lifelong connections that result in a successful, happy life.
All Pressley Ridge services are guided by a common treatment philosophy called Re-Education (Re-ED), which focuses on the entire ecology of the child and family with the goal of building on existing strengths to bring about positive change. Core beliefs of Re-ED include the importance of trusting relationships with caring, committed adults; the belief that competence can be taught; the understanding of the connection between physical health and emotional health; and that children, youth and families should know some joy in each day.
Pressley Ridge integrates a trauma-informed perspective into all of our services, providing the foundation for a basic understanding of the psychological, neurological, biological, and social impact that trauma has on individuals.
We believe that treatment should be a family endeavor, that every family member plays an important role in helping to mend. Therefore, each of our programs treat youth by involving families in their care, no matter the volume or complexity of family issues or the severity of the child’s needs.
