Deer Valley Campus


The Deer Valley Campus provides psychiatric residential treatment for boys ages 11-17 who have serious emotional and behavioral problems in a natural setting amid more than 1,000 acres of wooded land and rolling hills near Linden, Tenn.

Staff includes master’s-level counselors, child and adolescent psychiatrists, and around-the-clock nurses.

Our goal is to return children to a less restrictive environment to continue their progress through intensive in-home services, with their family when possible, or therapeutic foster care when it is not.
