Map and directions
Located on fifty scenic acres, this 67,000 square foot, 78-bed treatment center for adolescents ages 12-18 includes an on-site school, a chapel, a gymnasium and fitness center and an outdoor dining patio.
Reminiscent of a mountain lodge with open beam rafters, the view from the living space in each patient wing is dominated by panoramic scenes of the Healing Garden and its natural stone waterfalls, large boulders and ponds full of bass, bluegill and dazzlingly colorful koi. The latest addition to the Griffin Williamson Campus is the Ipsen Conservatory, a year-round, state-of-the-art facility designed to provide a space for horticultural therapy as part of the school’s Experiential Therapies program. Overlooking the Healing Garden from the second floor of the center, the 33-by-23-foot conservatory was opened in the spring of 2013.
