MPA offers residential treatment services for adolescent males at multiple locations throughout New Hampshire. We work to improve students' ability to connect with others, increase their ability to cope, and help them thrive in all areas of life. MPA is known for its ability to achieve successful outcomes with difficult-to-serve individuals.
Our treatment philosophy focuses on promoting student strengths and developing the whole person. Academics are a core element of MPA's treatment plans, and our internship programs aim to develop a sense of responsibility and diligent work ethic in students.
MPA believes that the least restrictive settings are the best places to serve struggling individuals. Our teams work closely with students and families in their own environment, creating the best possibility for lasting impact.

We demonstrate the utmost respect for our clients and try to bring their voices into everything we do.
