Young people who are grappling with mental health concerns, behavioral issues, substance abuse problems, and developmental disorders can come to SUWS of the Carolinas and receive the services and support they need to learn how to live healthier and more satisfying lives. Care at this center takes place amidst the picturesque backdrop of nature’s wonders, which exposes youth to several recreational and experiential therapeutic experiences. Young people between the ages of 10 and 17 can come to this renowned residential treatment center to learn the importance of teamwork, develop healthy self-esteem and self-confidence, and partake in interventions that can make them healthier in mind, body, and spirit.
This treatment center offers three distinct programs. Seasons, which is for children and teens between the ages of 10 and 13, is designed to help young people with behavioral concerns develop social skills and methods for controlling
problematic behaviors so that they can lead more productive lives when at home.
Additionally, youth within this age range who are suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, substance abuse, or other such concerns can also benefit from the variety of interventions available. The Phoenix Outdoor Program, which is for adolescents between the ages of 14 and 17, is intended for those who struggle with anger, school failure, substance abuse, and self-esteem issues. While in this program, young people receive ongoing support and therapeutic services that can help them better control their emotions, refrain from substance abuse, and develop the self-confidence needed to live healthier lives once and for all. The Approach Program is for

youth between the ages of 14 and 17 who are diagnosed with autism, struggle with social situations, and have avoidance issues. With the help of expertly trained, compassionate, and patient staff members, adolescents in this program ultimately acquire the skills and techniques required to carry out tasks of daily living while also forming close relationships with peers.
Additionally, SUWS of the Carolinas is pleased to offer a family program so that those closest to the young people who are treated can remain engaged in their child’s care, learn about the condition(s) that their child is suffering from, and can give and receive support to and from other parents/guardians who may have experienced similar challenges with their children. Furthermore, once a youth’s time at SUWS is nearing a close, parents and/or guardians participate in a two-day therapeutic experience with their children so that they can cometogether to heal as a unified front. 
In order for a young person to begin receiving treatment at SUWS of the Carolinas, one must simply contact this center to begin the streamlined admissions process. From there, it can be determined if this center is the most beneficial place for a youth to start working towards acquiring the tools needed to be successful at home, in school, and in his or her respective community.
