Muir Wood Adolescent & Family Services is a gender-specific, boys residential treatment program designed specifically for boys ages 12-17 suffering from substance abuse and co-occurring issues. Located on six acres in beautiful Sonoma County, California, our ten-bed campus provides adolescent boys a safe and structured environment to explore sensitive underlying issues within a highly credentialed clinical setting. The gender-specific environment invites teen boys to build strong peer support essential in early recovery.
In designing the most effective treatment program for adolescent boys, we understand that the treatment needs of boys and girls differ significantly. Our treatment approach combines an exceptional clinical team and treatment practices with other proven therapeutic and experiential modalities.
Muir Wood also offers an outpatient program in nearby San Rafael that serves boys and girls ages 12-19 with substance use disorder and co-occurring behavioral health issues. Our highly credentialed team works closely with teens and families to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include group therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectal behavior therapy, and when needed, medication management.
Our philosophy emphasizes kindness and respect over confrontation or control. We create the conditions that allow teens to feel valued, engaged and willing to begin productive lives in recovery.
