About the Landing

Love, friendship, hope, denial, powerlessness, peace, forgiveness, action, and honesty make up only a few of the topics we cover in The Landing. In a comfortable, friendly environment, we provide the support that teens need to overcome the struggles of life. These can range anywhere from anxiety and depression, to bullying, eating disorders, emotional challenges at home, physical and substance abuse. The program is Christian-based, but contains students from all backgrounds, faiths, and orientations. We believe that it is up to the individual to choose how he or she approaches their own recovery.
