Liahona Academy has been helping troubled boys and their families since 2001 and is among the top residential treatment centers in the nation. Liahona Academy’s therapeutic program is based on the effective philosophy of a keen balance between “love and discipline”. At Liahona Academy, we believe that boys thrive in an environment of “love” and “discipline”. Moreover, we believe that boys respond to the help offered when they feel loved, respected and responsible.

At Liahona Treatment Center the inappropriate behaviors are met with empathy and fair outlined, consistent consequences.
