Families Trust Equinox: A Residential Treatment Center for Michigan Teens
Equinox is a residential treatment center for Michigan teens struggling with trauma or loss, depression, relationship deterioration, and impulsive and addictive behaviors. Each child’s journey is different, which is why our residential treatment center is specifically designed for young men ages 14 to 18. Through our therapeutic program Michigan youth build accountability, respect, and develop solution-oriented approaches to solving their challenges.
Although Equinox is not located in Michigan, we help teens from all over the country find success.
Unlike other residential treatment centers for Michigan boys, Equinox believes in focusing on inside-out change, rather than compliance. Residential treatment centers historical focus is on compliance; at Equinox, we believe that this approach results in short-lived changes for most teens.
Our residential treatment center works on generating compliance through relationship-based and principle-centered focus. Each teen has the choice to comply, making principles of respect, responsibility, love, family relationships, and personal growth more likely to be experienced and self-sustained.
Equinox is a private, owner-operated program for Michigan youth. Our founders are clinicians, educators, and residential staff, who are an active role on campus daily and are regularly involved in activities with students. We believe that people are the benefactors of long-lasting inspiration and growth in the lives of youth. Which is why everyone involved in each student’s journey at Equinox are qualified, caring professional who have been trained using evidence-based and cutting-edge therapeutic approaches.
Equinox Residential Treatment Center Helps Michigan Families Find Success
Equinox Residential Treatment Center has helped multiple families around the United States find success through the three pillars of our clinical approach. The three-pillar approach forms a solid foundation for positive growth and development for Michigan teens who are struggling with the many common mental health issues today.
The Three Pillars of our Clinical Approach Include:
- Relationship-Based: At Equinox, we believe developing healthy relationships with staff and peers is an important part of achieve success. Therapeutic connection through relationship is the number one factor for change. To achieve this at our residential treatment center for Michigan youth, we hire and train our staff to effectively foster and maintain positive relationships with our students and families. Through these relationships healing and change occurs.
- Principle-Driven: Helping young men develop a positive value system is also an important part of our program. We help promote internal growth in our students by a process of interventions directed at helping boys embrace values and become young men of character. When Michigan boys develop these values and they become internal and solid, that is when change becomes solid.
- Experientially-Applied: This therapeutic approach uses experiences to shift Michigan teens thinking and perspective both cognitively and emotionally. Many adolescents resist or avoid change; experiential therapy can be new activities that are fun, challenging, uncomfortable, and physical. Through this process, teens receive therapeutic benefits without even realizing it. These activities help dismantle old ways of being and present new and healthy concepts that shift teens to take in new perspectives and ways of thinking.
The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) : The AACAP is an organization focused on promoting the mental wellbeing of young people. Their site is useful for parents who are seeking local physicians and information on mental health treatment. They have useful sections that are organized for families by topics relating to the needs of their child or loved one.
Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) : The Anxiety and Depression Association of America provides information and services specifically focused on various anxiety disorders and depression. It is a great resource for both professionals and families in need of more information on these mental health disorders.

They also make it a priority to provide information that educates individuals on stigmas and misconceptions about mental health.
