Successful Transitions in a Supportive Setting

About Us

The Approach is a co-ed transitional home environment designed to help teens and young adults transition out of the highly structured residential environment of a treatment center and into a more relaxed, less structured home environment. During their time at The Approach, students have the opportunity to:

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Elevations, The Approach and The ViewPoint Center are committed to reflect on ourselves and our systems to take action in a way that supports equity and inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, and identity. We are committed to do better; we are committed to do more. Our goal is to make everlasting change in the lives of our students and their families as well as create a safe space on our campus for all students, staff, and families. We will continue to listen, improve, evolve, and grow.
