Provo Canyon School, located in Utah, Provo close to University Ave. is a residential treatment school and safe/ right choice for Teens with behavioral problems.

At Provo Canyon School, we are committed to finding the most appropriate care for each adolescent. We begin the admission process by obtaining relevant information from parents or guardians, counselors, therapists, physicians or other professionals who have worked with the adolescent. Results of any psychiatric or psychological testing, as well as information on any other hospitalizations, are particularly helpful. This material is then carefully reviewed by our multi-disciplinary Admissions Committee.

The Admissions Committee at Provo Canyon School will make a determination of acceptance into the program after reviewing all of the available information. If, after careful consideration, we feel that Provo Canyon School is not the most appropriate program for the adolescent, we will make every effort to recommend other options.

Admission can be denied at Provo canyon school, for the following reasons...

· If the child is in need of hospitalization due to a severe psychiatric disorder.

· Impairment due to brain injury.
