Who We Help

We specialize in helping young women from ages 12 through 17 who are struggling with the results of complex trauma and attachment related issues including diagnosed Reactive Attachment Disorder.  These struggles and disorders are very common with adopted children or children residing in foster care.  It is not unusual for many of these young women to manifest very difficult behaviors that severely impact those around them.  These difficult behaviors often result in improper diagnoses and treatment plans.  These behaviors might include:

  • Abnormal and unpredictable anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Withdrawl
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Oppositional-Defiant Disorder
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicide Ideation and Attempts
  • Drug and Alcohol Abuse
  • Sexual Promiscuity

While we are experts at managing and treating these behaviors, our program is designed to address the complex trauma and attachment issues that motivate or underlie these behaviors.  As we treat the underlying trauma and attachment issues, there is almost universally an amelioration of the troubling behaviors.  In fact, a focus on the behaviors without addressing the underlying causes would be tantamount to inflicting additional trauma and merely compound a young woman’s struggles.

Programs To Help You Afford
Our High Quality Treatment

Zion Hills Academy accepts California Adoption Assistance Program Funding (AAP). Our sister program, Havenwood Academy, is one of few to accept Medicaid insurance. We also work with IEP funds, insurance, and private pay. Our admissions team helps you understand and secure these funding sources to get the help your daughter needs.

If you believe your daughter may be right for our program and have access to any of these funding sources or would like to determine if you might have access, please fill out our online assessment so our admissions team can begin their work with you today!

Our Facility

Our young women reside in houses that offer a more intimate and home-like environment. To simulate real life situations, our young women, after their morning routines, travel to a central school facility where they attend school and participate in therapy and other activities.
