Rising Peak Academy provides a unique experience for adolescents suffering from addiction that need to acquire coping skills and relapse prevention in order to transition back into a healthy and successful life. Our program advantages can be broken down into 3 categories.

Rising Peak Academy Daily Schedule


Leveraging the foundation of the 12-steps our programming will set us apart through the right combination of therapy, academics, life-skill building, healthy living, service and recovery. Our 3-phase approach will develop these young men into ambitious and contributing adults with a service approach to society.

The key is in our daily schedule and exceptional staff.

Our principles for staff engagement are based on our core values including:

  • Commitment to Quality
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Open Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Determination
  • Respect
  • Accountability


Our property is located in one of the most beautiful areas in the world in Northwest Montana, 15 miles from the airport and our campus is a mountain paradise with more than 20 acres of space for recreation, meditation, swimming, fishing, skiing, ice skating and golf.

Rising Peak Academy is within minutes of Glacier National Park, Whitefish Lake, Bigfork, Big Mountain Ski Area, and Flathead Lake, Rising Peak Academy gives young men the ability to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


We have developed strategic partnerships with local tutoring agencies, testing agencies, Psychologists and Psychiatrists as well as many mentors and professionals in the area to support critical needs and help our young men find their passion. Partnering with Wilderness Treatment Center, a residential care provider for over 35 years, allows us the opportunity to leverage many of the benefits of a residential care facility on 6000 acres while living and going to school on the Rising Peak Academy campus.


We are located within 45 minutes of Wilderness Treatment Center which allows us to leverage many of the benefits of the primary care facility for clients needing extra services or opportunities to participate in experiential therapy. These would include speaking opportunities, high ropes course, rappelling, equine therapy, group therapy and therapeutic wilderness trips. The opportunity to provide multi-level services between 2 locations is a clear advantage over many programs.
