Crisis Residential Treatment

Sorrel Leaf will offer a 10-30 day residential stay at our farm-based Crisis Residential Treatment facility, focused on helping the young person in crisis to restore wholeness and meaning to their lives. In addition to therapeutic care and activities, Residents will be exposed to art, music, farming, cooking and meaningful community.


Our therapeutic approach is rooted in a mindfulness model that focuses on embodied healing and connection to self, each other and the human and natural environments. Residents will leave with new and better tools for emotional regulation and distress tolerance. Some of the modalities we will utilize include dialectical and cognitive behavior therapies, group therapy, family systems therapy, and somatic and experiential modalities including yoga, music, movement and breathwor, in addition to life skills training, sleep and diet optimization. Through a collaboration with UCSF Benioff’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, pediatric psychiatrists will oversee  diagnosis and, when indicated, the medical management of mental health challenges.
