Residential Treatment Center
“Faith - Family - Finish - Forever”
Clearview Girls Academy is a Christian therapeutic boarding school for troubled teenage girls and we offer therapeutic counseling for girls with adoption issues such as reactive attachment disorder, self-harm and self-mutilation or cutting, or eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and anorexia nervosa. Other behavioral issues we treat many include defiance, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse, and/or general anxiety.
Just as important, we encourage troubled girls to seek truth and to trust in the Holy Spirit, our Holy Comforter who was given to all believers in Christ. At Clearview, we coach and train our students to seek, trust, and rely on the Holy Spirit, who is their comforter.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” - John 10:10

Our Insurance Providers
Clearview Clearview is far less expensive, and your insurance may cover part of your fees. We work with these insurance providers and more:
We've helped girls overcome life-controlling issues like substance abuse and addiction. Girls in our care attend individual, group, and family therapy sessions with skilled professional counselors. We provide specialized help for students dealing with addiction and abandonment issues. Our therapists assess each girl with a "history of drug use" to determine the nature and extent of her drug and alcohol use. Additionally, our staff has over 60 years of experience specializing in Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, EMDR, Reality Therapy, and Trauma Therapy.
We are an accredited school for girls struggling academically due to ongoing emotional and behavioral problems. We use technology and computer-based curriculum directed by licensed teachers and an entire professional academic staff. We specialize in GPA repair & credit recovery. We meet the unique academic needs of our students while simultaneously supporting their emotional growth. Teachers work closely with our therapists to ensure each student receives academic instruction while overcoming various emotional issues.
Reconciliation is "the act" of bringing all good things back together as one, fully restored. Behavioral reconciliation is the process of aligning our thoughts and our actions together in order to become who we are meant to be, and who we really want to be. Behavioral reconciliation happens when we realign our "inner man" (true self) with our destiny (true identity) and then follow our hearts. Behavioral reconciliation leads to the repair and restoration of our relationships, which leads to being full of joy.

A special note from our Clinical Team regarding “Eating Disorders.”
Eating disorders are some of the most complex diagnoses in terms of treatment planning. The type of students we serve best when it comes to eating disorders are teenagers and young adults who do not use their eating disorders as their identity.
Unfortunately, many kids use an eating disorder as a coping mechanism, with the core issue being what drives them to the eating disorder. We are highly skilled at developing other coping mechanisms for kids with eating disorders when they come to us under these conditions.
An easy way to tell if a young person has an eating disorder identity is through relapse. Teenagers and young people who have relapsed to the same pattern multiple times often fall into the category of more extreme identity roots in their eating disorder. This is very similar to recovery work for drug addicts.
For this reason, we would recommend those with identity issues seek more specialized treatment until the relapses stop for at least six months, and then we'd consider doing the identity work and to ensure it doesn't return.
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” - 2 Corinthians 3:18
Cutting, burning, ripping off scabs, pulling out hairs, skin scratching, head banging, are all self-injury behavior. Self-injury is a coping mechanism to manage overwhelming emotional pain, feelings of anger, sadness, and emptiness. Self-injury is addictive as it releases the body’s beta-endorphins, giving the girl a general feeling of well being.
Anorexia Nervosa and other eating disorders are a refusal to maintain a minimally normal body weight. It takes over when a girl is afraid of gaining weight and continually sees her body as fat, even though she is thin. With Bulimia the girl often purges food she has eaten by self-induced vomiting, fasting, excessive exercise, laxatives, and diuretics.
Reactive Attachment Disorder begins before the age of five and often happens with adopted children. The girl may respond to caregivers with a mixture of approach, avoidance, and resist their comforting or may exhibit frozen watchfulness. On the other hand, she may also be excessively familiar with strangers. The parent-child relationship is not normal.
