Welcome to the J. Rex Fuqua Campus
Our facilities and gardens reflect our treatment philosophy: you are more than a diagnosis. To take this virtual tour of the J. Rex Fuqua Campus for adolescents ages 14 to 17, click the red and gray hotspot icons embedded in the photos, or click on the thumbnail images displayed on the bottom left corner of your screen.
The campus consists of two buildings - a clinical building and a residential hall – with a sunny courtyard nestled in between. The courtyard provides spaces for recreation, conversation, and outdoor dining.
Adolescent clients begin each day with yoga and mindfulness. Throughout the week, daily fitness sessions encourage teens to strengthen body and mind through functional training and strength training activities designed especially for adolescent physical and mental development.
Teens participate in musical activities at least one hour each week and explore the positive effects of listening to and creating their own music. Led by our music specialist, clients are encouraged to sing, play instruments, participate in drum circles, or just hum and tap their feet as a way to express themselves and connect with others.
Structured daily art activities led by our art therapist connect to clients’ therapeutic goals. Art provides a creative way to explore new ideas and concepts being discussed in group and individual therapy sessions. A weekly open art studio allows teens to explore and master new materials like clay, ceramics, charcoal, pastels, or paint.
The dining hall has a unique garage-style door that opens in nice weather to make indoor-outdoor dining easy. Clients are encouraged to share healthy meals together. Our registered dietitian collaborates with our onsite catering team on meal planning. The adjoining game room is a recreational area for ping pong, shuffle board, board games, and other activities.
A structured daily schedule includes groups led by our adolescent psychologists. Depending on their diagnoses, adolescent clients are assigned to one of two specialized tracks: mood or anxiety/OCD. Clients engage in groups with other peers in their track designed to help them learn about their diagnoses and adopt skills to prevent and manage symptoms. Clients also meet one-on-one with their specialized individual therapist and their adolescent psychiatrist at least once each week.
Academic education is integrated in programming year-round. Clients receive four hours of academic instruction each weekday. Certified educators provide daily instruction, coordinate with schools to ensure clients maintain academic progress, and help clients adopt strategies for long-term academic success.
A living room on each floor provides a common area for clients to complete academic and therapeutic homework and to socialize with peers, supervised by residential and nursing staff. A kitchenette gives clients access to healthy snacks on evenings and weekends.
Teen clients receive a private bedroom with an adjoining private bathroom. A closet and shelves are available for storage, and a desk in each room provides a place to study. Residential counselors complete room checks throughout the night.
