About Mindstream Academy:
MindStream is a fun, innovative co-ed boarding program where teens achieve healthy weight, get fit and build self esteem by nurturing their Mind, Body, and Spirit. In this positive, safe and caring natural environment, we teach teens proven, healthy life-skills to handle the daily stress and triggers that have led to their unhealthy habits.
MindStream was designed to develop the skills needed to bring about true-life change for long-term health and wellness. MindStream stresses that to gain control over one’s life, the focus is healing the whole person, not just weight loss. And while each student comes with their own needs, goals and objectives, there is a common theme: they all want to move forward towards positive lifestyle change.
Our campus is a beautiful 43-acre retreat where teens can safely explore the mental, emotional, physical and social factors that led them to this crossroad. By helping them better understand the underlying cause of their behaviors, they can change for life. The time to get healthy and start on the path to feeling better is now…with MindStream.
