WE TREAT

Self-mutilating
behavior

Cutting, burning, ripping off scabs, pulling out hairs, skin scratching, head banging, are all self-injury behavior. Self-injury is a coping mechanism to manage overwhelming emotional pain, feelings of anger, sadness, and emptiness. Self-injury is addictive as it releases the body’s beta-endorphins, giving the girl a general feeling of well being.

WE TREAT

Various eating
disorders

Anorexia Nervosa and other eating disorders are a refusal to maintain a minimally normal body weight. It takes over when a girl is afraid of gaining weight and continually sees her body as fat, even though she is thin. With Bulimia the girl often purges food she has eaten by self-induced vomiting, fasting, excessive exercise, laxatives, and diuretics.

WE TREAT

Reactive attachment
disorders

Reactive Attachment Disorder begins before the age of five and often happens with adopted children. The girl may respond to caregivers with a mixture of approach, avoidance, and resist their comforting or may exhibit frozen watchfulness. On the other hand, she may also be excessively familiar with strangers. The parent-child relationship is not normal.

See what people are saying about us!

At Elk Mountain Academy, we believe that Jesus is the only answer. We encourage but never force any girl or family to comply with the Bible's teaching. With no apology, we encourage our students to engage the Word of God in their own personal journey and growth process.

"In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace."

- Colossians 1:6
