Program Description

Spruce Mountain Inn offers a structured, comprehensive treatment program that combines therapeutic/psychiatric intervention, vocational development, substance abuse treatment and skills training within the context of a supportive community.

A typical successful candidate is between the ages of 17 and late 20’s and has several of the following characteristics: challenges which may effect: mood, the ability to manage stress/anxiety; difficulty maintaining healthy relationships; difficulty sustaining employment; difficulty managing daily affairs; difficulty managing time; substance abuse and/or becoming more independent from family. Our goal is for our participants to practice and sustain activities that will lead to a fully independent life and career.  As participants make progress, they take on greater levels of self-direction.

In the residential program, 12 clients live in single or double rooms and participate in the routine of community living at Spruce Mountain Inn. There are also 3 individual on-site apartments, an unstaffed off-site group residence, and community based apartments. Initially, a participant’s day is highly structured around a variety of groups and activities. As time goes on, schedules include volunteer and competitive work placements and/or college classes in the local community, which replace some of the activities at the Inn. A clinically rich treatment team that is comprised of a case manager, psychotherapist, support worker, vocational coordinator, and psychiatrist each meet with the program participants to work on specific treatment goals and provide continuity throughout the Spruce Mountain Inn experience.
