Residential Therapeutic Programs Help Children Academically, Socially, and Emotionally

Residential treatment at Green Chimneys is a unique, multi-faceted therapeutic program designed to give every child a chance to succeed academically, socially and emotionally. Green Chimneys offers residential therapeutic programs, accredited special education in a New York State 853 school, environmental and recreation programs, and animal-assisted therapy for students with social, emotional, learning and behavioral challenges, as well as spectrum disorders.

We believe that when children explore and discover their inherent strengths in a structured, nature-based environment, their self-esteem, compassion, coping and social skills improve. Our residential therapeutic programs help children maximize their potential through strong academics, recreational and clinical interventions, and relationships with peers, adults and nature.

Our youth Residential Treatment Center (RTC) provides intensive structure and support to emotionally fragile boys and girls age 6-13 upon admission, who are coping with a variety of challenges related to:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Impulse Control Disorder
