Adolescent Recovery of Cumberland Heights (ARCH Academy)

When Cumberland Heights began its Adolescent Program in 1985 there were few other adolescent services or programs like it in the country. Since then, it has grown so much we are expanding to a new state of the art facility in 2019.

ARCH Academy is currently located on Cumberland Heights’ River Road campus, but soon we will make our transition to a 67-acre property in Kingston Springs, just 15 miles down the road.

We want young people to discover and experience fun without alcohol and drugs.

Surrounded by wooded hills and free of city distractions, ARCH Academy provides the ideal setting for adolescent recovery. With a length of stay ranging from 60 days to 6 months, teen boys, ages 14-18 will rediscover themselves through 12-Step recovery, proven clinical therapy, educational services and adventure programming. We want young people to discover and experience fun without alcohol and drugs.

ARCH Academy is designed for adolescent males based on research regarding development and proven techniques that engage our kids in a meaningful way.  Because teens are in a critical developmental stage in their lives, recovery from alcohol and drug use looks different for them than it does for adults.

The Academy

Your son will not fall behind in school if he joins ARCH Academy. We operate a fully accredited private high school with grades 7-12 and include GED prep, credit recovery options and follow up academic placement. Our licensed teacher and principal works closely with the family to provide support and guidance through the process. ARCH Academy proudly celebrates frequent graduations for those who finish high school while in treatment.

Recovery Care Advocacy

Alcohol and drug addiction is a chronic, progressive and potentially fatal disease. Studies have shown accountability with a continuing care plan, sober fellowship, family involvement and extended support serve as the cornerstone for long-term recovery. Recovery Care Advocacy at Cumberland Heights is a service provided to all our alumni through their first year of recovery after completing a treatment program at Cumberland Heights.
