The residential milieu is a primary vehicle for change at La Europa. The structure and community activities are in place to promote healing and develop resiliency in our students as well as keeping them engaged, learning and practicing new insights. There are three core components of our residential milieu that provide the support for our students to learn about themselves and explore changes:

  • Daily program structure: Many of our students struggle with structuring their own time and respond well to a structured schedule. This reduces anxiety and helps students manage emotions.  Our daily structure includes time for chores; quiet and reflections; physical activity; school work; therapy; social interaction; recreational activities and community involvement.
  • Mentoring: Teachable moments occur throughout each day for staff mentors coach student on the use of new skills, time management strategies and handling social interactions.  
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) interventions: At La Europa, we use a variety of DBT interventions to help students understand their behavior, learn to break behaviors down into smaller action steps and identify and practice effective skills to effectively manage behavior and emotions.
