Equinox serves boys, ages 14 to 18, struggling with emotional and behavioral issues. Our beautiful campus in the mountains provides a healthy environment for multi-modality group, individual, and family therapy, weekly, as well as a place to re-engage in school through small, teacher-led fully-accredited classes. Clients build life skills through community living and grow physically and emotionally during their weekly adventure recreation activities. Our clients and families are able to heal and grow through our uniquely holistic, relational, evidence-based approaches.
We strive to support the creation of self-sustaining, lifelong change at Equinox through our remarkable people and programming. When change is generated through a relationship-based and principle-centered focus, in which a teenager has the choice to comply, lifelong, sustainable change is achievable.
The Equinox Difference
Success in working with young men requires specific and unique areas of neurological, emotional, and physiological emphasis. At Equinox, we have created a culture and approach designed specifically to meet the needs of teenage boys.
Equinox RTC grew out of a dream to provide the best trauma treatment for adolescents that we could. Founders Kyle and Bryan adapted the trauma model used at Solstice RTC to best aid and support young boys. Since its founding Equinox has developed into the leading trauma treatment program for adolescent boys.
At Equinox, our team is dedicated to the well-being of your son. We hire passionate, dedicated people to run our program. Our staff also undergoes specific, regular training to continue their own personal and professional development which is essential to the life-creating work we do.
Equinox is situated in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Bat Cave, North Carolina, and our campus is just a short drive from Asheville. We are within a 10-15 minute drive of some of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. Five more scenic miles brings you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80’s movie Dirty Dancing.
