Milieu Therapy at ALA
Milieu therapy is based on the concept that a person’s environment in a therapeutic boarding school is both crucial and significant in respect to the possibility of both individual and community success. Every element of Abundant Life Academy’s student’s environment comes into play in regards to their therapeutic growth. Each boarding school staff member involved with Abundant Life Academy spends time in direct care with students—building relationship and rapport, and earning the right to speak into his or her life. As a result, there is an added increase in the amount of “counseling” our students receive and thus, an increase in the benefit received in terms of effectiveness and longevity.
