Founded by and under the direction of George and Sheila Harmon since 1986, the Whitney Academy is an unique, year-round residential treatment center. We are nationally recognized for specializing in the treatment of dually diagnosed (developmentally delayed and psychiatrically disordered) young men, ages ten to twenty-two, who present with a wide spectrum of sexualized behavior problems ranging from trauma reactive to sexually abusive. All aspects of student life at Whitney reflect the Academy's care, compassion and respect for its students as individuals, from beautiful and comfortable community residences to comprehensive clinical, medical and educational services. Whitney's program is highly monitored and staff secure. Our treatment model provides for community safety and state of the art treatment in what we believe is the most 'normal and homelike' environment possible. The care and treatment of our student population considers the whole person - each individual s specific needs, his sense of belonging, self-esteem and social skills. Treatment at Whitney encompasses much more than what is offered by many traditional programs of this type.
