Green Cottage, Eliada’s newest residential cottage, opened in July of 2014. Earle Cottage was transformed into a Level III facility in 2016 due to the high demand for these services.

Both cottages are small, home-like, four-bed residences that are well suited for children who may not need as intensive and restrictive services as Eliada’s other cottages. This residence acts as a stepping stone for children before returning to their home communities.

Green and Earle Cottages serve children and adolescents ages 13-17 and their treatment journey incorporates the following:

EQUIP Treatment Model: EQUIP blends Positive Peer Culture and Aggression Replacement Training to motivate and equip youth with skills to help one another act responsibly.  Students participate in daily goal, reflection, and peer support groups, as well as attend a help group led by a Clinician.

Participation in Therapeutic Recreation: Students participate in outdoor recreation activities and equine-assisted therapy (TASC) that blends directly with their treatment goals.
