The Goodale School and Recovery Community considers boys in high school who:

  • have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression and/or ADHD;
  • have completed a detoxification program and/or short-term treatment such as a wilderness, inpatient, or 30/60/90-day program; and
  • are, at a minimum, aware of the negative impact of their substance abuse and contemplating a change. Ideally, they are ready to commit to the work of building a life in recovery.
Reserving a Space at The Goodale School

You may hold a place for your son for a fee, which will be applied to tuition if he is accepted.

Please note that reserving a spot does not guarantee admission.

If you think your son might benefit from what our program has to offer, please call us at
(828) 220-0040 or email us to set up a time to talk.
Our application process is designed to help us, and you, determine if The Goodale School would be a good fit for your son. It consists of the following steps, some of which can be completed simultaneously or in different order:
Introductory telephone call with parents to discuss student’s history, specific needs and circumstances and to answer any questions the family may have.
Review of student’s documentation (psycho-educational testing, transcripts, etc.)
Telephone call with student’s current
therapist or recent provider
Completion of online application
Student interview, via video conference or in
person if possible
Approval and invitation
for enrollment

The Goodale School team is happy to speak with you to determine if our program is the right fit for your son or client. For information, please contact our Admissions Team at (828) 220-0040 or email [email protected].
