Mountain State Boys Academy is a trauma informed children’s home that serves boys who have been adopted, and suffer from Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).
Some have organic brain damage. They learn and perceive things differently than others. So, we teach them differently. We teach them that what they are feeling is understandable and that it is a choice to continue feeling that way. We teach them to live in the present as we cannot change the past. We teach them how to heal themselves and then how to heal the relationships with their adoptive family members. We teach the family how to become whole.

What’s Being Said

I sent my son to receive help for him. He has attachment disorder and behavioral issues that I couldn’t deal with at home. My son was gone for 9 months and when he came home, his behaviors improved immensely!! I would recommend this ministry for anyone looking for out of home placement
Our 12 year old son adopted from Europe was struggling to bond and cope in his new environments. Honestly, we were desperate for help as therapy and wrap around program was not working. We sent our son to this long term respite program, and we have not regretted our decision yet!!!
