Student Life at Mount Pleasant Academy for Boys
The Mount Pleasant Academy experience begins with a composited introduction to the staff, students, and program. Our goal is to promote unconditional acceptance and trust. The positive therapeutic experience at Mount Pleasant begins the first minute the student arrives.
Program orientation: Our goal is to ease the student into the program by giving them a sense of acceptance and hope. Orientation is a time when students settle in, and are presented with opportunities for growth and prosperity. The potential positive outcome of their experience is reliant on methods that encourage hope and understanding.
During the orientation our highly skilled staff provides assessments and the essential structure for the start of a journey to sustained recovery. Once this center has been established, students prepare to embark on a series of wilderness expeditions.
In a typical day, students will explore their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs using a variety of approaches, including:
- Positive Peer Culture
- Horsemanship and/or Equine Therapy
- Community Service
- Adventure Based Counseling
- Personal Power
- Conflict Resolution
- Positive Communication
- Anger Management
- Moral Reasoning
- Social Equality
- Planning and Decision Making
- Skills development
Mount Pleasant Academy therapists are incredibly competent licensed clinicians who have extensive training and vast experience helping boys overcome pornography addiction, digital addictions, and compulsive sexual behavior. Our committed professionals recognize that pornography addiction and sexual addictions are often accompanied by both dual-diagnosis issues and underlying emotional challenges that must be addressed to ensure lasting recovery.
