These groups include: Adolescent Male Development, Trauma Resolution, Anxiety and Depression, Substance Abuse, Competency and Skill Development, and Transition. Additionally, Gateway Academy utilizes an integrated recreational and wilderness approach to provide a well-rounded cognitive, emotional, and physical growth experience. Each young man is also provided on-site psychiatric services as needed.
