OUR PHILOSOPHY

What Is Live Strong House?

Live Strong House is a residential treatment center for adolescents and young adults. We specialize in students who struggle with information processing issues, substance abuse, PTSD, ADHD, depression, or anxiety. Many of our students do not fit the traditional school environment and may be heavily influenced by negative peer groups.

What Is the Mission of Live Strong House?

 “Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” -Brené Brown

The mission of Live Strong House is to develop a lasting change in the lives of young men by providing the highest quality of treatment, living our core values, creating interpersonal relationships, loving self and others, and understanding how to Live Strong.

The work we do at Live Strong House is centered around developing a connection with each of our students and using that connection to facilitate personal growth. Our ability to focus on each student creates a lasting bond that allows us to influence and engender internal change.

Whether your child uses video games to escape from relationships or uses substances to cope with day-to-day life, at Live Strong House, he will foster healthy connections that will show him how to love himself and others. Without that love, other relationships with family, friends, or others will be a struggle.

Over the past twenty years, we have noticed that many of the youth we’ve worked with have developed a self-imposed ceiling, cultivated from fear, self-doubt, and poor coping skills.  We all have challenges in life; however, if we have someone who sees our potential, who believes in us, and who can look past our mistakes, we will rise to that potential. We are confident that each of our students has the ability to break through that ceiling of self-doubt, and through our relationship and values-focused approach, we are able to show our clients what it means to Live Strong.

“No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” -James P. Comer
