Journey Home is located just outside Salt Lake City in Utah, but accepts young women all over the country, including North Dakota.
Every girl who wishes to attend the program must meet these requirements: graduation from a residential treatment center, therapeutic wilderness program, therapeutic boarding school, or other similar treatment programs, has demonstrated readiness for this level of responsibility and freedom, is committed and stable relative to ongoing life and therapeutic goals, is and is committed to sobriety. If your child from North Dakota meets these requirements, she can then undergo an admission interview and our professional team will assess if an independent living program is the best choice for your daughter. We work especially with depressive and anxiety disorders, body image issues, ADD/ADHD and other learning issues, academic struggles and low self-esteem.
Our program is based on five core principles: healthy living, education, life skills, personal responsibility and social integration.

She will do a follow up interview at least every two weeks, and a couple of parents will be assigned to her as guidance.
