Skillman North Campus

Established in 2013, our Skillman North campus spans six acres of private farmland. It was the very first Muir Wood Adolescent and Family Services campus, allowing us to offer exceptional specialized and integrated residential treatment for teen boys in Northern California (Petaluma). All treatment in this program takes place here at Skillman North, while the other three Skillman campuses provide comfortable quarters for meals, relaxation, and rest.

This sprawling country farmhouse is the ideal place for boys to explore and process sensitive issues, build strong peer relationships, and maintain a focus on education and recovery. 

In addition to therapeutic treatment, the on-campus Muir Wood Learning Center provides boys with the tools and guidance to maintain continuity with their home schools and continued educational growth. Our learning program is recognized by The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). 

This campus also houses the Jennifer Golick Family Learning Center, which is used for music therapy, yoga, meditation, and other holistic therapies. These creative and physical outlets allow for emotional expression and personal growth outside of talk therapy sessions.

Skillman South Campus

Part of our Skillman Program and located on the same six acres of Sonoma County farmland as Skillman North, Skillman South is a satellite home for boys in the program. Skillman South features an array of amenities, including a soccer field, volleyball court, and lighted basketball court, allowing boys, ages 12 to 17, to heal and learn coping and social skills through physical activity. This campus houses six boys participating in the Skillman Treatment Program. 

Skillman East Campus

Skillman East sits just down the road from Skillman North and South and serves as another satellite residence for six boys participating in the Skillman Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Program. 

Treatment does not take place at Skillman East, as the boys travel to Skillman North daily for therapy. However, its close location to the therapeutic and recreational resources makes it a comfortable place to rest between treatment sessions.

Hannan Ranch Campus

Hannan Ranch is an idyllic residence for adolescent boys, located on two acres in the Petaluma countryside and just minutes from Skillman North. With 300-degree sweeping views of Mount Saint Helena, this campus is the perfect environment for boys aged 12 to 17 to feel comfortable enough to practice life and coping skills for managing mental health and substance use issues. 

This campus also serves as a satellite house for six boys participating in the Skillman Treatment Program.
