Shelterwood Expands Residential Care Programming to Include Brain Balance Program
Shelterwood is the first residential treatment center to provide the Brain Balance Program® to all teens under in-patient care. “We have utilized the Brain Balance Program for years as part of our interdisciplinary team approach of providing clinical and professional care to struggling teens,” says Jim Marvine, Shelterwood CEO. “The differences we’ve seen in the teens who have participated in this program have been amazing. The first people to notice a positive change are our teachers, which reinforces a Brain Balance tenet: ‘a connected brain is a teachable brain.”
