Accepted by insurance providers

Elk Mountain is far less expensive, and your insurance may cover part of our fees. We work with a number of insurance providers.

  • 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 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.
