Our mission is to offer hope and healing to young men and their families by providing quality education and clinical services that promote spiritual awareness, individual discovery and personal growth.
West Ridge Academy recognizes the necessity of all the professional disciplines, i.e.
educational, medical, clinical treatment teams and counselors to facilitate positive change in our youth.
We strongly believe that long term behavioral change comes as a result of the discovery, implementation and practice of spiritual and moral values.
In contrast, the absence of these values produces negative behavior.
We also believe that the families of each young man need guidance and training in healthy family interaction to ensure lasting change.
In essence, we combine professional therapy involving both the young man and his family together with the development of spiritual and moral values.
