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-Harm 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 Trauma from Physical & Sexual Abuse

    Physical abuse is any act that results in physical injury to a child or adolescent, even if the injury was unintentional. Physical abuse often results from physical punishment that goes too far or when a parent or caregiver lashes out in anger, leaving long lasting emotional trauma.

  • 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.
