Highly Specialized, Licensed, Residential Treatment for Teen Boys in the Mountains of Benton, Tennessee.
Embark at the Forge is an innovative short-term residential treatment developed in response to the emotional and neurobiological needs of teen boys. At The Forge, we combine the immersion of extraordinary outdoor experiences, and empathetic and attuned individual and family counseling to help build greatness in young men.
Through our commitment to the CASA model, we aim to forge healing with the joy that comes from experiencing acceptance, security, and attunement in a committed home (CASA). This holistic experience with tactile and engaging life skills will help facilitate a deeper understanding of each student’s core sense of self and initiate positive behavioral change.
Our goal is to inspire a new confidence and way of being through a shift in the lens of how our students learn. We illuminate a better way forward for young men and forge the path for mighty leadership to be formed.
